Role Overview : The Chief of Staff (“COS”) is a critically important role, enabling the Chief Product Officer (“CPO”) to work most effectively with internal and external stakeholders to fulfill commitments to SCWX clients, partners, employees, Board and Executive Leadership Team (ELT). This is not an administrative role; it is strategic and requires a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to play an active, behind-the-scenes role. The role requires a highly resourceful individual with strong emotional intelligence, self-motivation, and strong analytical skills.

Role Responsibilities:

  • This role is based in Secureworks HQ office in Atlanta. There is modest travel involved (estimate 10%), as the COS will accompany the CPO to travel to SCWX locations, offsite meetings and/or partner meetings.

  • This role is responsible for preparation for, and facilitation of, “critical path” meetings, such as: QBR/MBRs (internal and with partners), Leadership Staff Meetings, QPRs, All Hands Meetings, Team Offsites, EBCs, Board and other key meetings

  • Preparation and management of CPO Annual Planning Calendar and Communication Cadence

  • Coordination of CPO quarterly OKR process

  • Support of CPO consolidated financial budget planning process across leadership team and in coordination with FP&A

  • Support of CPO talent development and succession planning process in coordination with HR

  • Coordination/orchestration of key projects or commitments directly involving the CPO and her direct reports. This responsibility primarily focuses on ensuring alignment among the often-disparate stakeholders and, when such alignment is absent, sharing this fact with the CPO and recommending mitigating approaches.

  • Independent leadership of special CPO-initiated projects, ranging from written artifacts authored by the CPO to convening thought leaders on various topics

  • Proactive identification of issues that could affect the successful execution of the CPO’s commitments: This responsibility involves elevating those issues about which the CPO should be aware and framing/positioning ideas to resolve the problem/mitigate the risk.

  • Support the executive team’s communications with the CPO: The COS will help facilitate decisions the executive staff need receiving feedback on from the CPO. S/he will support the needs of the executive staff in their ability to raise critical issues with the CPO and receive needed responses, guidance and decisions

  • This role does not have direct reports


  • Master of Business Administration desired

  • 7-10 years of progressive experience in a finance, strategy and/or product management role

  • Ability to manage tactically and drive a strategy at the same time

  • Proven leadership and influencing capabilities

  • Demonstrated capacity for emotional intelligence in difficult situations; problem solving skills

  • Deep analytical capabilities and high financial acumen, as well as experience building and/or managing a budget

  • Exemplary written and verbal communication skills, including development of board or executive-level presentations and meeting facilitation
