The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501c3 not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks.

OWASP Creates Executive Director Position
is driven by volunteers and the contributions of thousands all over the
world. Behind the scenes there is also a group of dedicated
paid staff that focus on critical operations to ensure the OWASP engine
keeps running strong. This team has grown organically over the years as OWASP has recognized the need for dedicated full time individuals to focus on specific task items. In each of these areas we've seen great successes from our staff.
As OWASP continues to grow we must also ensure our structure and supporting operations team grows too. The next step in that growth is the creation of the OWASP Executive Director role. The individual in this role will lead the focus and
resourcing of our operations team to ensure we execute on our strategic goals each year. This individual will ultimately be responsible for leading the operations team to success and will report directly to the OWASP board. This role will maximize the value our operations team provides to our community, projects and the world.
This is an exciting step forward for OWASP and a demonstration
of the continued growth of our community.
