Ring’s mission is to help make neighborhoods safer. We do so by offering a suite of security-related products and services, such as video doorbells, security cameras, alarm systems, smart lighting, and other related products and services.

At the core of Ring is respect for the privacy and security of our users. Do you care deeply about privacy and want to help define our principles and best practices? Do you believe users should have control over their personal information? Do you want to help build systems that respect users and their choices and enable responsible use of personal data at scale? Do you want to make privacy experiences more usable so users can make good choices?

If you are customer-obsessed and love privacy, we have a job for you! Our legal team is growing and looking for a seasoned Senior Technical Program Manager.

The legal team’s goal is to support business growth and innovation while honoring data policies and controls that help protect user privacy. You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of cutting-edge products and services. You will help lead key initiatives across the organization. You will help teams design their systems and customer experiences in a manner that upholds our high bar for customer trust. You will partner and work across disciplines including engineering, marketing, information security, legal and business.

Your focus is to help the legal team develop the principles, processes, tools, technologies, and infrastructure to ensure we protect the privacy of our customers and deepen the trust they have for Ring. This includes finding new ways to streamline and scale these efforts across the suite of Ring devices as well as the key services that support them.

As a Senior TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance customer and business needs versus technical constraints. An ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, develop functional specifications, and then deliver them in a successful and timely manner is expected.
