AU & NZ /
Business Operations Team /
We are looking for a Risk and Compliance Manager to help improve all things risk and compliance across Buildkite. As a remote-first company this job may be a bit of a different shape than you might be used to, but we’re super keen to learn how to do it together. Your role will involve you working with all of Buildkite’s teams. You will help us build and maintain programs that drive proactive risk identification and management, and help us scale with rapidly developing global regulatory frameworks. You will help in bridging gaps and conversations between the engineering/product teams, the operations team, our in-house counsel, and the rest of the organisation to better promote and advocate for risk and security. This role is ideal for someone who enjoys working in technology and wants a blend of strategic and practical work, as the role will require both planning risk and compliance initiatives and doing the day-to-day work to solve the problems that they find.

Build and drive the company’s Governance, Risk, and Compliance functions, operations, and processes, and continuously improve them.

Develop and implement data-driven analysis of risk to identify trends and insights, and assess, measure, and maintain compliance with existing regulatory and third-party frameworks.
Lead and manage all aspects of SOC II compliance, including risk assessments, control implementation, documentation, audits, and incident response, ensuring continuous compliance with regulatory standards
Drive compliance program remediations and improvements identified from post mortems, investigations, and other assessments.
Meet with our customers to hear and address inquiries related to risk management and compliance; foster transparent relationships to instil trust and confidence in the company's risk and compliance position.
Work closely with other cross-functional teams (especially Product, Engineering, and Chief Technology Officer) to meet ongoing obligations, including training, compliance and privacy operations (such as records of processing activities, audits, disclosures), and developing public documents to build and maintain trust.
Help develop and implement processes and controls to assess risk in the product development life cycle.
Draft, develop, and maintain policies and other governance.
Design and implement company-wide training materials.
Respond to security questionnaires from prospective and existing customers
