Success in the Role: What are the performance outcomes over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?
As an experienced developer you will make an impact from your first day on our team. You will contribute to some existing products in development and help to engineer new, highly visible solutions. You will enable others by establishing standards for front end development.
You will augment your existing skills and experience as you learn the ins and outs of our dynamic environment. Each member of our team has at least one personal development goal at any time and continued learning is expected.
The Work: What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?
You will be part of a team that designs, builds and maintains security products that enable the security organization to manage risk for VMware and increase visibility in an increasingly complicated world. These products must perform at scale. You will be able to interpret requirements and product ideas and turn them into functional applications.

What is the leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?
The team is led by Brendan Higgins, based in Palo Alto, California. Brendan joined VMware from Pivotal where he built and led the Information Security team for several years. He is one of the leaders of the OWASP Bay Area Chapter.
This is a new team with an important mission. We are a distributed team who can work anywhere. We follow agile development methodologies including pair programming, experimentation, iteration and are committed to learning from rapid feedback. We spend as little time in meetings as possible, instead focusing on adding real value and making meaningful use of our time. We evangelize and drive adoption of these methodologies across the security teams at VMware.
We engage with the broader security community by participating in local meetups, conferences and open source contributions.
Where is this role located?
