Working at Fractional CISO
We believe the best way to serve our clients is to have employees who are happy and productive. While we have an important job to do (protecting our clients), we want to enjoy and have fun while doing it.
We have high expectations for our employees because we value the work we do and the trust our clients have given us to do it. In turn, our employees have high expectations for us because they understand the value they bring to the company.
We want to provide the best environment for our employees to thrive, grow and enjoy. As a full-time employee, employees can expect the following and much more!
- Competitive Salary and Bonus. We have invested time and resources to survey the market to be able to compensate our employees to best match their skillsets.
- Flexible Vacation. Part of enjoying a job, is also enjoying life. Whether it is a much needed trip back to India to visit family, the wedding and honeymoon of your dreams or the European vacation you’ve always wanted; we want everyone to be encouraged and feel supported in taking time off to enjoy life. We have a well-established set of resources to allow employees the flexibility to thoroughly enjoy their vacation without worrying about work. Additionally, we understand and support everyday obligations of life, such as seeing your child’s school play or soccer game, attending your little brother’s graduation or grandma’s 80th birthday. Fractional CISO is flexible.
- Skills Growth. As a company and as individual employees, we have the common goal of growth. Additionally as we grow, we want each employee’s skill set to grow through their willingness to learn. We have designed the team and each role with growth in mind. In each role, employees can expect to enhance their current skill set. If you are looking to gain a diverse set of cybersecurity and business skills, Fractional CISO is the place for you. Our company structure is effective because we do not pigeonhole team members into doing the same two things day in and day out. As a result, after a year or two, employees see a significant growth in their skillset. This growth is a value added to the company, which translates to better client care. And we love creating value for our clients!
- Healthy Living. Health is essential to your overall well-being. Fractional CISO understands there are few things in life more important than one’s health. As a company, we support and encourage healthy living. This is why the company contributes to ⅔ of the costs of employees’ health insurance and their children and ⅓ of spouses’ costs. We provide no cost life and disability insurance. Additionally, all full-time employees are eligible for 24/7 access to the on-site gym.
- Fueling Great Thoughts. We want to ensure both your body and mind are properly fueled to take on each day. Our offices are stocked with unlimited coffee and snacks. If we do not carry a snack you love, just ask.
- Ringing the Gong! Success is an essential part of Fractional CISO and we like to celebrate it. When we close a new client or complete a big project, we ring the gong. It is not a figure of speech. We actually have a gong in the office to which we encourage each employee to ring for big accomplishments. Do not worry, we also supply headphones.
We value our employees and candidates alike. We want the process to be straightforward for all. Here is what you should expect during the Fractional CISO hiring process:
- Fair treatment. We treat all candidates equally, fairly and with respect for their time and effort.
