About Zscaler

Zscaler (NASDAQ: ZS) accelerates digital transformation so that customers can be more agile, efficient, resilient, and secure. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange is the company’s cloud-native platform that protects thousands of customers from cyberattacks and data loss by securely connecting users, devices, and applications in any location. 

With more than 10 years of experience developing, operating, and scaling the cloud, Zscaler serves thousands of enterprise customers around the world, including 450 of the Forbes Global 2000 organizations. In addition to protecting customers from damaging threats, such as ransomware and data exfiltration, it helps them slash costs, reduce complexity, and improve the user experience by eliminating stacks of latency-creating gateway appliances. 

Zscaler was founded in 2007 with a mission to make the cloud a safe place to do business and a more enjoyable experience for enterprise users. Zscaler’s purpose-built security platform puts a company’s defenses and controls where the connections occur—the internet—so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications and workloads reside.

The Director, M&A, Divestiture and Private Equity role reports to the Head of M&A, Divestitures, and Private Equity within the Office of the CEO.

Additionally, this role will be expected to partner with internal stakeholders (e.g., sales manager, technology partners) and external stakeholders (e.g., Advisory firms, global systems integrations) to deliver transformative solutions for our clients while also driving revenue for Zscaler. 

This is a remote position and can be based anywhere in the United States. We highly prefer the location to be west coast at this time.
