Consumer Reports is seeking a Project Leader to oversee testing projects as a member of our new Digital Lab team — a group of tenacious journalists, privacy experts, product testers, technologists and policy analysts dedicated to shining a light on the data privacy and security issues that consumers increasingly face, as well as examining the broader topics of fair market competition, transparency, and consumer choice in today's marketplace. By scaling our capabilities and expertise for the digital era, Consumer Reports is expanding efforts to protect, educate, and empower consumers in our connected world while holding companies to higher standards.
We're looking for someone with hands-on experience in the theory and practice of privacy and security in connected products. We’re looking for the kind of people who have done independent penetration testing or been part of a red team, monitored network security for a startup, researched defensive privacy for a talk, or implemented privacy/security design principles in an app. This person would augment our team with the skill set and investigative leadership we need to be effective and timely, while establishing good practices and collaborating with team members to produce solid, repeatable results.
The Project Leader oversees testing projects. Ensures that testing protocols and procedures are followed, and that methodologies are developed to meet our continually transforming testing objectives.
