About the Position
Contrast Professional Services is on a mission to secure modern software applications. We work closely with security and development teams worldwide, applying our expertise to the Contrast Application Security Platform to secure the complete software development life cycle.
Our team is searching for an Engagement Manager who is a catalyst for action and helps our Customers achieve roaring success with the Contrast platform. This role requires equal parts technical strength, precision execution, and the ability to forge the relationships needed to drive projects to success.

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to demonstrate all the hallmarks of a great project manager, including leadership, communication, and team-building skills. You’ll also need to master the consultative relationship, setting expectations, providing guidance, and staying ahead of industry trends so that your advice is on point. Finally, you’ll need to excel at building or improving existing processes, as driving consistency, efficiency, and excellence in our organization will be one of your mandates.
