📝 Privacy and Security Policy Lead
Remote (US-based) or San Francisco, CA /
Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, CNBC, and WIRED. Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
As we open up Clubhouse to the whole world, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know! 🙏
As a member of the policy and public affairs team, you’ll work closely with just about everyone at the company—engineers, designers, communications, marketing, operations, lawyers, product managers, and others—to help interdisciplinary teams simultaneously address policy, legal, engineering, user interface, business, marketing and other privacy and security requirements. During the pandemic, we are working remotely. We will have an office in San Francisco when we are able to safely reopen our office for those who prefer to work in person. This role will be open to both local and US-based, remote candidates.
Who you are
You are experienced. You are a self-starter, a good team player, and a meticulous project manager. You can switch between high-level strategic thinking and detailed work like a light switch. You’re familiar with privacy and public policy issues and have a meaningful understanding of the stakeholders and perspectives in the privacy and security communities.
You bias towards action. You favor practical choices, speed and a respect for sequencing. You focus on the things that matter and push back on things that don’t. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast.
You’re scrappy and entrepreneurial. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You are willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.
You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work. If something seems off, you come up with a good solution and fix it without being asked to do so. You’re proactive with suggestions and people know they can count on you to get things done.
You care about doing the right thing. You weigh difficult tradeoffs with principled thinking. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
You’ll wear many different hats. Your work will require partnering with product managers, engineers, designers, researchers, attorneys, operations, communications. and third-party experts to shape our privacy and security policies and practices. In this role, you’ll help implement best-in-class security and privacy-protective approaches. On any given day, you will act as a researcher, product adviser, or project manager in a fast moving environment. As a key partner to our teams, you’ll work together to evaluate and respond to legislative and regulatory developments around privacy. Our thriving community will also look to you to help communicate privacy and security policies and best practices.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing your skills on a daily basis.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
