Whole Foods Market is synonymous with impeccable standards and the highest quality products available. Our Information Technology team is looking for talented individuals to help drive the Information Security organization to help protect our data, our Team Members, and most importantly, our customers.

This organization owns the end-to-end security of all systems and data across Whole Foods Market. You should be highly passionate about application security, vulnerability analysis/assessment, penetration testing, and remediation. The ideal candidate has a background in product security engineering or application security research, and can discover SQL injection vulnerabilities and write XSS exploits, but would rather talk about vulnerabilities than find them.

Are you skilled at helping customers and partners prioritize and understand their risk requirements and translate those insights to decision makers? Can you lead the discussion and collaborate with system owners on risk remediation activities? Do you have the discipline to deliver results when the going gets ambiguous? Are you ready to do all this on a massive scale, with a strong passion for ownership and accountability?

We are seeking an experienced Sr. Technical Program Manager in the Information Security domain to develop, expand, and drive the structure, processes, programs, and interactions needed for a successful technical risk management program. You’ll be a critical part of an organization focused on positively influencing the security culture, with the ultimate goal of reducing information security risk.

This position is based in Austin, TX.
