About Thirty Madison 

Thirty Madison is building the premier healthcare company for people with chronic health issues. Through our novel approach to care delivery, powered by our proprietary platform and brands built around specific chronic conditions, we combine the best of specialist-level healthcare with the convenience of telemedicine.

In just three years, we've built three brands on top of our platform: Keeps (for men's hair loss), Cove (for migraine), and Evens (for acid reflux). We're growing rapidly, recently raised a $47m Series B, and are backed by some of the best healthcare and consumer investors, including Polaris Partners, Johnson & Johnson, Maveron, Northzone, First Round, and Greycroft, among others.

The Role

There’s not a better time to join Thirty Madison. Fresh off of our $47m Series B fundraise, we are looking for a world-class and seasoned engineering leader to serve as our Director of Security Engineering. As we continue to improve the healthcare experience and outcomes for millions of patients as well as launch new therapeutic areas in more complex conditions, you will develop our security engineering team to ensure that the maximum number of people have safe and secure access to high-quality, affordable care from Thirty Madison.

In this role, you will build the security engineering team and the software security program at Thirty Madison. You will partner with our Head of Engineering to provide strategic technical guidance and further develop a security-minded culture. You will ensure security is baked into all of our processes including infrastructure deployments, software development practices, as well as company IT and compliance practices. You will lead by example, applying your significant technology and team building skills to help our company mitigate security risks while continuing to push boundaries and execute at an extremely high level. 

The ideal candidate has both tactical and management experience in security engineering. Additionally, they are excited to operate as a player-coach while building a best-in-class security team that is poised to support our organization at scale.

This is an incredible opportunity for someone who wants to drive change in healthcare and improve how millions of people manage chronic health issues.

How we are managing through the COVID pandemic and its impact on our team?

These are unprecedented times and we understand COVID-19 is impacting everyone differently. Our primary goal from the beginning of the pandemic has been to ensure employee safety. We went from optional to mandatory work-from-home very quickly in early March, and we have told employees that they can work remotely through April 2021 to allow them to plan accordingly. 

We have also rolled out several initiatives to help our team successfully navigate the uncertainty associated with COVID-19. These initiatives have included providing funds for home office improvements, medical reimbursements, free meditation/mindfulness tools, mandatory “Me Days” away from work, company-wide days off, and fun opportunities to connect live with teammates each week (such as virtual escape rooms).  We continue to examine different benefits, tools, and processes that best support our employees as we continue to work remotely and eventually begin transitioning back to the office.

BENEFITS:

  • Competitive salary, equity, and career development opportunities
  • 100% coverage on many health, dental, and vision insurance plans
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits, 401k, and FSA
  • Budget for the technology tools you need — whether a laptop, monitor, or special software
  • Unlimited vacation days and annual $1,000 vacation stipend!

 

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace committed to building a team culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion.
