Data Protection Advisor

We see a future where it’s easy to bring a great idea into the world using the internet, while respecting data security and privacy. The next generation of businesses will design security and privacy into their operating processes. If every business is going to be a software business, every business will need to be a security business.
We’re working to make information security a core competency of every startup. We envision a world in which startups have access to great information security, are empowered to focus on their businesses instead of on compliance, can scale faster and more efficiently, and are confident that they’re creating quality products.
About this Role
We’re looking for a Data Protection Advisor to help our customers design, operate, and audit their information security management programs with Aptible; to help drive growth by working with our product and marketing teams to design Aptible Comply and help use acquire customers; and to help Aptible run its internal compliance operations.
This is a unique opportunity to be a high-impact, early member of the Aptible Team, and to lay the foundations for our team of experts in security, privacy, and compliance. As a Data Protection Advisor, you will engage directly with our customers — helping them make the most of Aptible Comply, and ultimately, build strong security and privacy cultures within their organizations.

Your Impact

    • You’ll establish relationships with CEOs, COOs, CTOs and other key customer stakeholders, making sure they feel supported as they onboard and get acquainted with Aptible Comply by explaining complicated concepts in accessible terms, advising them on their security and compliance obligations, and giving them concrete recommendations to increase their trustworthiness.
    • You’ll serve as the voice of our customers, delivering subject matter insights and constructive feedback to our Product Team to inform the development of Aptible Comply.
    • You’ll drive new customers to Aptible by drafting external-facing blog posts, newsletters, and compliance guides — you will be the public face of expertise at Aptible.
    • You’ll help Aptible run its own security and privacy operations, including managing Aptible’s yearly internal, SOC 2, ISO 27001, and HITRUST audits.

Your Strengths

    • Security Standards & Data Privacy Expertise: You’re a subject matter expert with success leading an internal audit program (ISO 27001, SOC 2, HITRUST), as well as an internal regulatory compliance program (HIPAA, GDPR). Bonus: You also have a CIPP/E or CISSP Certification.
    • Client Services Skills: You’re committed to delivering excellence in every client interaction. You have experience leading and developing work product for external clients.
    • Verbal and Written Communication Skills: You have experience explaining complicated concepts and drafting clear communications. You have experience drafting easy-to-understand public-facing posts on a range of security and privacy topics. Experience communicating with Senior Leaders is helpful, but not required.
    • Project Management Skills: You have experience running several projects at once, and are comfortable working collaboratively with internal and external clients.
    • Problem Solving Skills: You have experience analyzing root causes and identifying creative solutions to complex business problems we may not have encountered before.

Our Benefits

    • Work from Anywhere: Enjoy the flexibility of working from home, a local co-working space, or your favorite coffee shop.
    • Open Vacation Policy: We encourage you to take the time you need, when you need it — for any holiday or matter of personal importance.
    • Paid Parental Leave: We offer job-protected Paid Time Off — 14 Weeks, Fully Paid — for all parents to bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child.
    • Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance: We offer comprehensive health care for employees, with 100% of premiums paid by Aptible.
    • Hardware & Software: We help you create your ideal office setup and provide any software you’ll need.
    • Company Travel: We come together in-person at least two to three times per year, in locations around the globe.
Our Interview Process
We seek to make the experience of interviewing with us as delightful, efficient, fair, respectful, and transparent as possible.
A typical process at Aptible might include the following steps, and takes approximately 3 weeks to complete. We try to move as quickly as possible, but if you have any time constraints, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
1) An Introduction to Aptible with an Aptible Team Member (30 Minutes via Zoom)
2) A Discussion-Based Interview with the Hiring Manager (45 Minutes via Zoom)
3) A Take-Home Work Sample Exercise (NB: You will be compensated for completing this.)
4) One or two discussion-Based Interviews with Aptible Team Members (45-60 Minutes via Zoom)
We believe that the Work Sample Exercise is an important part of the process, in that it gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills in a concrete way. We take the time to design these exercises such that they: a) give you a view into the actual work you’d do at Aptible, and b) are standardized, so every candidate is evaluated using the same criteria.
