We believe that today’s entrepreneurs are changing the world through software. Our mission is to empower these entrepreneurs by bringing modern app development within reach for any developer, anywhere in the world.

We want people who are passionate about making the internet a safer place for everyone.

We're looking for an Engineer to join our Security team with experience building governance, compliance, and privacy programs. Through collaboration with legal, internal audit, and technical teams, you’ll help guide DigitalOcean on how best to engage on security and privacy issues with our customers. 

You'll report to the Manager of Trust & Governance, but you will need to act independently and consult with teams across the organization. As an Engineer you’ll be responsible for working with multiple stakeholders to identify, prioritize and implement technical changes to help improve our privacy and security programs. You’ll have direct interaction in refining security policies, managing vendor risk, enhancing our customer trust, and implementing privacy program requirements on one of the largest global public cloud environments. 

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Build and implement DigitalOcean’s security trust, governance, privacy, and compliance functions.
  • Formalize DigitalOcean’s stance on privacy and compliance topics as it relates to our customer-base, the kinds of information we collect, and where that information may potentially be shared through the course of business.
  • Manage communications and awareness campaigns for security and privacy topics to keep DigitalOcean employees and customers up to date with the latest developments.
  • Support annual compliance recertifications (Privacy Shield, ISO) and implement additional compliance offerings to provide further value DigitalOcean customers (CSA, SOC II Report) 
  • Engage prospective customers on their security-related questions and queries. Work with customer account managers to bring security a selling point for DigitalOcean.
  • Document DigitalOcean security policies, controls, and security risk management. 

What We’ll Expect From You:

  • Comfort with a wide range of compliance and privacy regimes, and how they affect technology, hosting, and cloud companies.
  • Demonstrated people management ability, for achieving cross-functional outcomes.
  • Knowledge of technical architectures, virtualized environments, continuous integration & delivery environments, and software engineering practices.
  • Demonstrable experience collaborating and coordinating with legal, internal audit, engineering, and infrastructure teams.
  • A habit of approaching new problems with creativity and being comfortable working with ambiguity 
  • Ability to perform some level of data analysis using MySql

Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:

  • We have amazing people. We can promise you will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We work hard but we always have fun doing it. We care deeply about each other and take our “no jerks” rule very seriously.
  • We value development. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. That means we maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development.  You’ll need to be great to get hired here and we promise you’ll get even better.
  • We care about you. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym reimbursement to support your physical health, and a monthly commute allowance to make your trips to and from work easier.
  • We invest in your future. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match. We also provide all employees with reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
  • We want you to love where you work. We have great office spaces located in the heart of SoHo NYC and Cambridge and offer daily catered lunches to keep your hunger at bay. We’re also very remote-friendly—we use Slack to communicate across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to onboard in-office and take an all-expenses paid trip to our annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the team at least once a year. We also allow employees to customize their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
  • We value diversity and inclusivity. We are an equal opportunity employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
