Job Description

We’ve been retained by a hugely exciting cybersecurity vendor who are growing out their new security Academy business unit and need a Director of Academy to lead the function. The Academy will serve three purposes:


  1. Provide internal employee and external client training on the cybersecurity platform
  2. Become a gamified cybersecurity training platform to simulate and teach cybersecurity event management and network access  
  3. Become a security certification and continued education platform


As the Director you will be responsible for developing and executing your own strategy for this function and will have a wide remit and influence. The Academy will become a significant revenue stream for the company, and you will have full PnL responsibility and run the org as it’s own business. You will be starting this from scratch so you will need to be excited by the idea of being a senior individual contributor initially before starting to hire and build the team.


You will receive a base salary of $150,000-200,000 plus bonus and lucrative stock options. The role is remote with some occasional travel.


What you need to bring to this role:


  • Experience building or leading an eLearning or training function. This could be a traditional eLearning product or a more creative gamified style simulation platform.
  • A background in cybersecurity training and awareness would be hugely beneficial. This could include exposure to phishing simulations etc. Candidates from other technical eLearning, gaming or flight simulation backgrounds will also be a good fit.
  • Experience creating content and setting strategy yourself. You will completely own this function and be responsible for taking this from an idea to a multimillion revenue org.
  • A creative mindset. The ability to think up new and creative ideas for the platform.


If you are an experience training and eLearning professional who gets excited about building the next leading cybersecurity training platform, then please get in touch to find out more!
