  • 2+ years hands-on experience with cloud infrastructure applications (AWS, OCI, Azure, etc.), particularly in the realm of IAM policies and identity management

  • A practice of clear and concise written and verbal communication, and strong facilitation skills to level the communication playing field among team members
  • Familiarity with the security landscape of LLMs in the current generative AI market
Responsibilities
  • Own internal and external communications for the security program portfolio
  • Triage and manage the resolution of inbound customer security requests, including contract reviews and security checklists

  • Project positivity, calm and competency in all your work
Desired Qualifications
  • A “methodology agnostic” approach to leading teams and programs - you are familiar with, but not tied to any given framework (i.e. Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, etc)
  • A flexible and curious mindset, ready to pivot and delve into different areas of Cohere’s stack as your portfolio grows and evolves
  • The capacity for critical self-reflection, a thorough understanding of your own strengths and weakness, and the desire to improve your professional capabilities over time
