At Ring, we are committed to making home and neighborhood security accessible and effective for everyone, while working hard to bring communities together.

As a member of the Privacy Operations team, you will play a key role in operationalizing privacy across the Ring organization. This includes engaging with multiple stakeholders across the enterprise to help ensure compliant outcomes. You will be responsible for consulting with key stakeholders to drive alignment with global privacy regulatory requirements, including GDPR.

In the execution of Amazon’s global privacy obligations, you will rely heavily on your subject matter expertise, as well as your project management, analytical, and relationship building skills to develop and deploy innovative strategies for data protection.

The successful candidate leverages their background in compliance program management, data protection, records management, privacy by design, third party risk management, data governance, and/or data modelling to implement privacy controls across the internal technology ecosystem.

Key job responsibilities
The identified candidate will demonstrate proven experience to: support stakeholders; evaluate control effectiveness; manage the execution of large, complex projects; improve process efficiency and scalability; understand levels of potential risk and how to address them; provide in-depth privacy consultation; track global privacy regulations; and synthesize diverse data to identify patterns, draw conclusions, and prioritize remediation using risk management concepts.

In this role you will:

  • Consult with Ring organizations, such as Legal, IT, Security, and Product across their team's process, vendors, and application owners to ensure that sound protocols are in place to mitigate privacy risks.
  • Monitor known and emerging risks, measure internal control effectiveness, and develop and own action items to remediate identified risk issues.
  • Socialize and secure commitment for remediation and risk management strategies.
  • Develop deep knowledge of privacy obligations and data privacy processes and solutions.
  • Consult on the development of business requirements for new system implementations and enhancements.
  • Draft written narratives to communicate obligations, risk analyses, and recommendations.
  • Prepare other supporting documentation such as manager and employee communications, FAQs, and standard operating processes.
  • Respond to questions and troubleshoot issues.
  • Manage other risk and compliance related projects as needs arise.

A day in the life
The ‘day-to-day’ aspect of this role will be to review internal Ring systems for compliance with global privacy obligations. As part of this you will provide proactive guidance for upcoming tech builds and roadmaps, work with senior leaders on acceptable business risk when applicable, and track remediation actions as needed. You will be responsible for knowing the ins and outs of these systems, and ensure the system owners follow the correct paths to full compliance.

About the team
This team’s goal is to drive innovation while honoring data policies and controls that help protect customer privacy. You will have an opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of cutting-edge products and services.
