About the team

The Technology Audits team is responsible for Stripe's Technology and Compliance Audits. We have a team of technical program managers who focus on driving compliance within Stripe against industry/regulatory standards and helping us achieve compliance against them. Program managers in the team not only work on leading compliance and risk efforts to completion but also maintain strong relationships with internal stakeholders to support and answer compliance questions.

What you’ll do

Along with supporting multiple Technology and Compliance assessments (SOC 1, SOC 2, PCI, Regulatory audits) you will help with creating a centralized approach to manage audits. You will be responsible for designing processes, controls which are capable of meeting the demands of multiple compliance (existing and future) frameworks. The right person for this role will have deep technical discussions with our engineering teams to understand controls, processes and come up with creative ways to meet the intent of regulatory requirements. This means not only understanding multiple technical regulations but also having a technical understanding of common technologies and systems to have constructive discussions with our engineering teams. Also, this person should be someone who has experience formally managing multiple compliance programs and enjoys doing them.
