What is the Filecoin Foundation 
The Filecoin Foundation (FF) is an independent organization that facilitates governance of the Filecoin network, funds critical development projects, supports the growth of the Filecoin ecosystem, and advocates for Filecoin and the decentralized web. In 2017, the creators of Filecoin envisioned that an independent Filecoin Foundation would serve as the long-term governance body for the Filecoin Ecosystem. They gave the Foundation the mandate to “grow an open ecosystem for decentralized storage” and to “give developers an open and sustainable platform to build, enhance and monetize those services.” They wanted the Foundation to be modeled on Foundations for other open source projects like the Apache Software Foundation, the Mozilla Foundation and the Linux Foundation. The Filecoin Foundation operates independently of Protocol Labs, the organization that designed and built the Filecoin network. As a member of our early-stage team, you will have the opportunity to help define our growth as the organization scales. This is a full-time, remote position.

Job Description 
As Technical Program Manager for Security at the Filecoin Foundation, you will be a key part in ensuring the security of the Filecoin Ecosystem by identifying and evaluating risks and vulnerabilities across the network. You will take on the program management for security for Filecoin ecosystem development, helping to grow and lead the FF security team. You will become deeply embedded in the broader Filecoin community, identifying areas for improvement and proactively developing initiatives and programs to improve the network. Some of these programs already exist (such as the Filecoin Bug Bounty and Security Audit Programs); others you will develop as you identify the need and opportunity. This role involves leading the security team within Filecoin Foundation and coordinating closely with the Ecosystem & EngRes Working Groups’ security initiatives, making communication and the ability to build trusting relationships critical. If you are passionate about cybersecurity and a more decentralized internet, we want to talk to you!
