About Foursquare:Since our inception in 2009, Foursquare has been a leading force in changing how location information enriches our real-world and digital lives. As a location intelligence company, Foursquare is comprised of two well-known consumer apps, Foursquare and Swarm, as well as thriving media and enterprise products. Our B2B offerings include Places (for developers) and Pinpoint and Attribution (for marketers). With more than 200 people across our offices in New York, San Francisco, and in sales offices around the globe, we’re dedicated to our trailblazing mission—enriching consumer experiences and informing business decisions with location intelligence. In many ways, the company is now a Machine Learning and Data Science company at its core.About this position:Foursquare is looking for a Technical Project Manager to oversee information security initiatives across the company. This role will work closely with senior management to define goals and create plans for new security projects. This is a new role, in fact, we've never had a full-time Project Manager in any area of the company. We're looking for someone who can take ownership of process, help us elevate our thinking, force our goals to be well defined, flesh out interdependencies, drive the schedule, illuminate problems, and generally create order out of chaos.

  • Build out project plans for multiple security related projects
  • Source of truth for current status on multiple projects
  • Identify hurdles and bubble up issues affecting ability to execute
  • Proactively communicate status and any issues to stakeholders and drive the resolution of those issues with respect to the plan
  • Generally ensure the right level of communication is taking place across stakeholders and owners of interdependent work streams
  • Proactively seek to improve process and optimize for communication and collaboration
  • Take on tasks without clear ownership to ensure that things get done

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of experience in Technical Project Management for large software systems projects
  • Self-driven and confident in ability to execute without direct mentorship
  • Clear thinker and precise communicator in both speaking and writing
  • Extremely organized and detail oriented
  • Ability to help teams with project and task time estimation
  • Ability to run efficient meetings, facilitate discussion and present to senior leadership
