  • Develop open communication channels amongst partner teams that enable them to collaborate efficiently and transparently in a fast-paced environment, including curating content for Leadership program reviews and weekly status updates
  • Influence stakeholders and partner teams to have a long-term vision to programs that enables us to develop and deliver Lacework’s products and systems at scale in a reliable, efficient and automated approach.
