At Vercel, we believe that liberating the frontend unlocks creativity and open-source is the best way forward.
We are building a next-generation internet where developers can create freely and execute new ideas, guaranteeing a more vibrant, personalized internet. Vercel’s platform provides the speed and reliability to create at the moment of inspiration. In other words, our friction-less, real-time deployment makes it possible to start working on projects immediately — anywhere in the world.
Our globally-distributed team works asynchronously to lead the React ecosystem and serve developers at large companies. We pride ourselves on our diversity, shared urgency to iterate, team-oriented decision making, and drive to dig deep.
In this role you will get the opportunity to work with a small, but mighty security team to continue building out the nascent privacy program at Vercel. If you like greenfields and challenges, in a supportive environment, Vercel is the place for you.
The Privacy Program Manager will be responsible for building, monitoring, assessing, maintaining and upholding Vercel’s privacy program expectations in alignment with our privacy policies, standards, and industry best practices. This includes performing privacy assessments, conducting risk analysis, and recommending actions to relevant teams.
You will work across the organization with engineers, people operations, marketing, procurement, and others as the internal consultant on all projects, initiatives, and processes that involve processing personal data and/or data privacy implications.
Think you may not have all the skills and are hesitant to apply? There is no “perfect” candidate and encourage you to apply if you think that you can bring value to our team.
