Data Privacy and Governance Specialist

Are you passionate about privacy and security? (Keep your answer private for now 😉 )

Typeform helps people collect quality data. And we know how important it is to keep that data safe.  

That’s why we’re looking for a Data Privacy and Governance Specialist to take our Privacy and Security team to the next level.

Here’s Alejandro, our Security Architect:

“We’re a new team, but a crucial one. You’ll shape how we protect the privacy of our customers, employees, and corporate information—strengthening the security culture here at Typeform.”

You’ll guide the company on compliance requirements, improve policies and procedures, and educate others on all things IT privacy and governance.

Are you a legal and data privacy expert? Are you a quality communicator? Do you have so much entrepreneurial spirit you could stock a bar with it?

If yes, come help us beef up security.

The Role

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Guide teams on compliance and security-related matters.
  • Implement data protection policies, procedures, and training materials.
  • Promote a culture of data protection compliance across the company.
  • Do privacy risk assessments and implement best practices using a privacy-by-design approach.
  • Effectively communicate policies, procedures and compliance requirements to employees who need to work with them.
  • Partner with internal stakeholders to run the Vendor Risk Management (VRM) program.
  • Review and respond to customer security questionnaires, information requests, and due diligence requests.
  • Keep legal contracts, legal public information, and terms & conditions up to date.
  • Develop privacy training to promote information privacy in the company.
  • Eat delicious lunches.


Here’s what we’re after:

  • You’ve got a BA/MA or equivalent.
  • You’ve got data privacy expertise, preferably with a legal background and a strong knowledge of GDPR.
  • You’ve got experience in privacy, compliance, and information security—in an audit role.

  • You can prioritize based on risk and finish critical tasks in a fast-paced environment.
  • You’ve got excellent interpersonal communication skills
  • You speak English.
  • You’re a team player.
  • You leave space for fun (and cringeworthy jokes).

And for some added bonus points:

  • You know what these are: ISO 27001, Hipaa, PCI, Spanish LOPD, European Cookie Law, and CSA-STAR.
  • You’ve got security certifications such as CISA, CISSP, or something similar.
  • You understand different open source licenses.
  • You’ve worked in a startup/SaaS company.
