New York, NY, USA · San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Wednesday, October 4, 2023

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

About The Role:

Millions of people use Notion — and this number is increasing every day. Our users depend on us to deliver a secure, consistent and trustworthy experience, and we value this more than anything. We want to keep building on that trust, while also continuing to amaze our users with the tools they can build in Notion. This is where you come in — partnering with teams across the organization to envision, plan and build Notion's Information Security posture for governance, risk and compliance.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Helping mature, and scale our Security GRC programs based on industry best practices for (some or all of) the following functions including Audit Management, Third-party Assurance, Sales Enablement, Policy, and Risk Management, etc.
  • Driving control automation and supporting process improvements in the compliance portfolio
  • Supporting staff training around Security
  • Implementing and managing continuous controls assessments and remediation monitoring
  • Working cross-functionally to retain SOC2 Type II, ISO 27001, HIPAA, and other certifications that exhibit assurance internally and externally
  • Understanding what it takes to improve current Information security policies, procedures, and standards, for processes, applications, and infrastructure

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • Security Assessment Expertise: You have experience working with various stakeholders to review and help improve their current processes through assessments or other tools.
  • Pragmatic and business-oriented: You care about business impact and prioritize projects accordingly — you understand the risks and balance the right security investments with the right bottom line outcomes.
  • Empathetic communication: You communicate nuanced ideas clearly, whether you're explaining compliance requirements in writing or brainstorming in real time. When building consensus, you engage thoughtfully with other perspectives and compromise when needed.
  • Team player: For you, work isn't a solo endeavor. You enjoy collaborating cross-functionally to accomplish shared goals, and you care about learning, growing, and helping others to do the same.

Nice to Haves:

  • With a minimum of 5-7 years experience, you may have one or more of the following: CISSP, CISA, CRISC, CIPP
  • You have experience in implementing security risk management processes and frameworks.
  • You have a good understanding of how AI can impact security frameworks and can articulate its risks and benefits.
  • You are skilled in performing assessments and improving complex processes.
  • You've managed, maintained, and monitored systems like Whistic, RFP systems and GRC tools.
  • You've been responsible for maintaining continuous controls and participating in audits in relation to our customer facing certifications (like SOC2).
  • You have been a partner to sales teams, in customer facing discussions, and can talk to customers about our security posture confidently.
  • You have experience leading projects from start to finish across multiple teams and time zones.
