Job Description
I. Job Summary | Major goals

The Security Officer is a position of key importance at Dotdash Meredith. Security Officers are responsible for protecting our people and property, and are often the first to interact with our guests, clients, and vendors. It is imperative that our Security Officers are attentive to detail, maintain a high degree of situational awareness, are diligent in the completion of their tasks, and always provide exceptional customer service.

This is a flexible, full-time position providing necessary staffing coverage to support daily security operations, special events, and the overall needs of the business. In the absence of specific coverage needs, ‘Flex’ Security Officers will have the ability to determine when and how to meet their weekly hours based on what works best for them (within the parameters of normal daytime operations).
