Qualcomm’s XR team is seeking a Security & Privacy Lead to join a talented and innovative team developing the next generation of Augmented and Virtual reality (XR) technologies. As we develop the next generation of XR technologies, we are putting privacy and security in the front and center of our architecture and design philosophy. The Security and Privacy Lead will establish the guiding principles, design patterns, and validation schemes that uphold the security and privacy commitment of Qualcomm’s developer-facing XR SDK product(s). You will work closely with the XR SDK architects to establish and enforce the design patterns and best practices for security and privacy, lead the design effort for such services, and continue to provide engineering leadership through deployment and commercialization. You will work with product managers and program managers to incorporate security and privacy requirements into product requirements, and successfully drive design and implementation reviews to ensure that security and privacy are core components of the product. You will continuously assess privacy and security risks in current and upcoming XR products via well-defined privacy metrics. When privacy risks are found, you will lead immediate mitigation as well as longer term strategic solutions. Communications skills are key to success in this role, you must possess verbal and written skills that convey complex information to audiences with differing knowledge levels including high level internal constituents and have the ability to develop strong rapport and credibility to resolve conflicts and promote ideas persuasively and collaboratively.
