Duo Security, now a part of Cisco, is the leading provider of Trusted Access security and multi-factor authentication delivered through the cloud.


Duos mission is to make security simple for everyone. We were born from a hacker ethos and a desire to make the Internet a secure place. We believe in empowering people to follow their passions inside and outside of the office and enable every employee to bring their whole self to work.


Our team is our secret weapon. We run the spectrum from artists to analysts, low-key to high energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to solve what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge transforming the security industry as we know it. Together we build solutions that are easy, effective, trustworthy, and enduring. And thats why we are the most loved and trusted company in security.


This position is for a Project Manager. The day to day activities of this role closely align to that of a scrum master. You will work with two Engineering teams to help take Duos core MFA product offering to the next level. Our authentication product is responsible for millions of authentications a week for some of the most influential companies in the world. Your responsibility is to help your teams maintain and evolve this experience.


What youll do

  • Partner closely with Product and Engineering Managers to prioritize work.

  • Work with the Engineering teams as a scrum master to enable team success and drive results. 

  • Facilitate standard sprint ceremonies such as daily scrums, backlog groomings, sprint closes, retrospectives, demos and sprint planning.

  • Facilitate project planning, risk management and dependency mapping.

  • Help your teams organize daily, sprint, and quarterly level work.

  • Identify ways to improve how your teams work and help implement positive changes.

  • Master the tools our Project Managers interact with. Utilize those tools to help your Engineering teams work at a high level and report status to stakeholders.

  • Work with other Project Managers within Engineering to continue to develop and evolve project management best practices.

Skills you have

  • Experience in a software development organization. SaaS experience is a bonus.

  • Minimum of 3 years experience as a Technical Project Manager, Scrum Master or equivalent role.

  • Certified Scrum Master (or equivalent experience/knowledge).

  • Experience leading large projects requiring cross-team collaboration and proven ability to establish relationships across teams.

  • You take initiative to make positive, measurable changes in your organization. You are extremely organized with world-class communication skills, both verbal and written.

3 Reasons why you should apply

  • This position will have a hand in shaping the way the team works and delivers software as we continue growing at a rapid pace.

  • Youll be asked to take on new and unknown challenges to support the team - if that interests you, this position may be a great fit

  • You put people before process

This job may not be for you if...

  • If the pace of a fast-moving, growth phase company makes you uncomfortable, or if you need a lot of well-established policies and procedures before you can make decisions and drive results, this might not be the best role for you.

  • If youre uncomfortable leading, facilitating, and speaking in front of groups, this may not be a good fit

Duo is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team of employees. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents not only part of our culture, but our reputation and Duos achievement as well. In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that all potential candidates can bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, gender identity and expression, nationality, age, languages spoken, veterans status, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.


And if this role is exciting you, we encourage you to apply even if you dont meet all 100% of the description or qualifications. Finally and most importantly, we are a proud Equal Opportunity Employer.
