We’re looking for a lab testing manager who lives and breathes privacy, cybersecurity, and Internet of Things products. Our experts put thousands of products to the test each year in our 63 labs. These result in product ratings and also recommendations to manufacturers to make their products better, safer, and more secure for consumers.
With significant investment in our Digital Lab, we will incorporate privacy and data security scores for all of the connected product categories we test. We will also screen for problems with privacy policies and data security, which often results in discovering and disclosing vulnerabilities.
You will manage a consumer product testing team who will implement time-bound projects to incorporate privacy and security tests for products ranging from TVs, to laptops, to fridges, to robotic vacuums. You will oversee all aspects of a wide range of product testing projects related to privacy and information security of network and Internet-connected consumer products (both hardware and software). You will own planning, development, deployment, support and successful delivery of all phases of assigned product testing work as part of an overarching marketplace change strategy. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to original investigative research with Consumer Reports journalists and advocates.
This is a great career opportunity for a researcher or technologist interested in making a measurable impact on consumer privacy, cybersecurity, and the lived quality of IoT. You will solve a steady stream of interesting challenges, be exposed to the latest hardware and software from hundreds of manufacturers, and have the opportunity to take them apart, probe them, and increase public knowledge in a way that benefits millions of people.
