VP, Customer Experience

    • Herndon, VA

Thinking about the current state of security operations, do you long for what could be? Does thinking about how to organize the elegant dance between growing people, building technology and developing process to help deliver amazing results make your heart sing? If so, read on.

At Expel, we help businesses bridge the cybersecurity talent gap by providing transparent managed security. We create space so our customers can do what they love about security, even if that’s not spending time thinking about it at all. That means our team is watching the scopes, evaluating alerts, investigating leads, hunting for things the technology missed, and designing strategies to improve, all in service to keeping our customers safe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Caught between a product and service, your consultative background and penchant for asking great questions will guide our people and product platform to new heights. Your ability to think through complex situations from multiple perspectives together with your technical expertise in security operations or incident management will ensure our team can do the right thing at scale. You’ll help our Customer Experience team understand the unique journeys that our customers are on and ensure they reach their destination.

As you join our team, you’ll bring together 24x7 security operations, guide our detection & response philosophy, cultivate and grow customer success, and incubate new capabilities and offerings. Does that sound like the kind of challenge you’d like to take on? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
