About the role
Privacy is an important consideration in everything we do at Shopify. As a Privacy Engineering Program Manager, you will be a part of a team that Shopify relies on to ensure that privacy is top of mind in every endeavour as we fulfil our mission to “Make Commerce Better for Everyone”.
You will collaborate with world class teams to help reinforce and improve Shopify’s privacy posture. To achieve this you will develop a deep understanding of our product suite and our internal tooling, processes and privacy problem spaces. You’ll work with stakeholders across our organisation to ensure that we build privacy aware systems that scale as we grow.
With an ever-expanding ecosystem of consumer facing products, you will be expected to identify privacy risks, appropriate mitigations and where necessary implementation strategies. We are looking for someone that enjoys advocating on behalf of our consumers' right to privacy while simultaneously enabling teams to ship world class products.
Resourcefulness is key - you’ll need to quickly gather context on our infrastructure, products, software and safeguards to help Shopify continue shipping and scaling while staying trustworthy and usable. If you want to take the lead on work that impacts Shopify’s most dynamic and innovative initiatives, and you genuinely enjoy tackling complex problems at scale, we have a role for you!
Here’s what you can expect from the role - an opportunity to:
Work with multidisciplinary teams to strengthen the privacy posture of our products and services throughout their lifecycle - before, during, and after they ship
Design and implement technical and pragmatic solutions with an eye to scale
Dive deep into a new product or initiative to surface to analyse its impact on the privacy posture of the organisation
Implementing tripwires as leading indicators of where we have gaps in our privacy awareness strategy
Interrogate data to better inform decisions to ensure that they scale
Collaborate with highly motivated professionals with a unique blend of skill sets and experience
Help us build and scale our privacy programs and roadmaps
Interested in one or all of these areas? Before applying, please note you should have experience with one or more of the following (don’t stress, we are not expecting experience in all of the following!):
Comfortable with parsing technical concepts and documentation for digital products
Intimate experience with translating privacy legislation into technical requirements
Creating alignment across multiple teams and stakeholders including tracking and driving adoption
Performing deep data analysis to aid with storytelling and strategic thinking
Working closely with development teams and product managers
Identifying procedural gaps in order to drive continuous improvement
Drawing connections between technical documentation, source code, data sources and other repositories of information to build up context and understanding
Translating legislative jargon and privacy concepts into something simple, accurate and actionable
