Security Compliance Manager


Job Description is a groundbreaking cloud hosting and development tool for web applications. We’re a European VC-Backed startup with a host of blue-chip Enterprise clients and a string of awards and grants (including €2m from the EU Horizon 2020 program). Though young, we have become a major player in ecommerce, with actors such as Magento building their cloud solution on top of us.

We run a tight ship and was built from the ground up to be robust, and secure and we take great pride in protecting the privacy of our customers, and their users.

We are now looking for a new member of the team to take full responsibility of our compliance efforts, both in terms of security and privacy. This is going to be an ambitious project… because like everything else we do, we want to automate the h** out of this problem too.

Your mission, should you accept it, would be to work with Product Engineering, the Infrastructure People, and the operations people to devise the plan that will allow us to keep our current velocity, while implementing the controls and procedures needed to meet multiple, stringent compliance frameworks.

We are a fast moving company, and we want to stay that way. We have a complex topology (we deploy on multiple clouds, and we are a fully distributed company). It will be hard enough to implement this fast. It will be harder to make sure we stay fast afterwards. You will work with brilliant engineers, and together your job will be to produce the abstractions, the code and the processes that allow to do compliance right.

Knowledge of cloud technologies and constraints will be greatly appreciated. Strong PCI-DSS experience is required as is experience with implementing other norms such as SOC1/2 or HIPAA.It would be great if you have knowledge of the upcoming GDPR.
