Our Mission: To connect all people in need and the programs that serve them (with dignity and ease).
Aunt Bertha picks up where Uncle Sam leaves off by making it easy to find and apply for government and charitable social service programs. By organizing the world's human service program information, we make it easy for people in need and the people who help them to find help in seconds on
We are looking for people who are driven to make the world a drastically better place and want to join our small group of thoughtful, committed citizens because they believe, as Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Our employees are aligned around this mission. That's why it is a requirement of our application process that you include a cover letter detailing how Aunt Bertha’s mission speaks to you. 
Please note: If our mission doesn't strike a chord with you that is OK. But please consider not applying. We are seeking people who come on fire after learning about what we do.
The Work
In this work, privacy and security are a top priority and foundational to all that we do. For example, we work with health insurers, hospital systems, schools and universities, city and state governments, and more, to reach people in need. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we protect our customer’s and our user’s data by delivering against the Security, Privacy, and Compliance commitments we make to our diverse constituent groups. To ensure we do this, we seek to hire an Information Security Manager who will serve as the Deputy CISO responsible for executing our Information Security Program. 
Our Information Security program attained HITRUST status in 2019. This role is a critical part of our strategy to maintain our compliance status while incrementally improving our security program and modernizing our platform architecture. Strong process skills and an ability to pull alongside the product engineering teams to evaluate the security impact of changes are a must for any successful candidate. 
The Ideal Candidate
 such as logical access control or separation of duties when working across the business. They are confident in their ability to establish processes by putting “pen to paper” to document the current state, with an eye towards continuous improvement in the future. This candidate is excited to learn the ins and outs of executive communication and corporate governance while bringing their deep expertise as a subject matter expert and an individual contributor to the executive leadership committee. Aunt Bertha takes its customer commitments seriously and is expecting this hire to be the first line of defense to ensure our senior leadership is informed and effective when it comes to managing our security, privacy, and compliance risks. 
This skillset and experience level can expect to command 150-195 base salary, with higher pay bands associated with more excellent experience serving in a CISO or vCISO capacity. Ideal candidates will be excited to have access to senior management and gain experience coaching executives on managing cybersecurity risk. Additionally, they understand this role to be one that will require them to serve as a shining example of what being an independent contributor looks like on the security team.
