SVP, Human Resources Alert Logic
Alert Logic is poised for explosive growth. The security market is growing two times as fast as the overall IT market and Alert Logic?s entirely unique security-as-a-service approach positions the company as the clear up and coming leader in this $5b market. Its products are easier to consume and provide for better security outcomes than the current market leaders. Alert Logic has been recognized this year by Gartner in their Cool Vendors: Security Services report and by Forrester Research as a leader in the emerging managed security services space.
Alert Logic is the best-kept secret in the security market and seeks a world class SVP, Human Resources to play a strategic role in further disrupting the market and achieving breakthrough growth.
The SVP, Human Resources (SVP/HR) will help lead Alert Logic achieve its strategic goals associated with cloud security market leadership. S/he will lead and mentor the company to define strategies and tactics for talent acquisition, talent management, talent retention, culture development, compensation, international expansion, performance management, and all other metrics related to human resources that are required to guide the organization through its next growth phase. The SVP/HR will be responsible for designing and managing the company?s human resources programs and communications while managing a growing team.
The SVP/HR will play a critical role in shaping the strategy and operations of the company. S/he will ultimately be responsible for defining, building and overseeing all human resources functions, processes, budget and personnel. This is a highly strategic role rather than a tactical, operational HR role. However, the SVP/HR must manage, as well as lead, by getting personally involved in human resources execution to ensure that strategic objectives are met.
