Founded by Dr. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg in 2015, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is a new kind of philanthropy that’s leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – from eradicating disease, to improving education, to reforming the criminal justice system. Across three core Initiative focus areas of Science, Education and Justice and Opportunity, we’re pairing engineering with grantmaking, impact investing, policy work, and movement building, to help build an inclusive, just and healthy future for everyone.
We believe we can help build a future for everyone.
- We aim to be daring, but humble: We look for bold ideas — regardless of structure and stage — and help them scale by pairing engineers with subject matter experts to build tools that accelerate the pace of social progress.
- We want to learn fast, but build for the long-term: We want to iterate fast and help bring new solutions to the table, but we also realize that important breakthroughs often take decades, or even centuries.
- Stay close to the real problems: We engage directly in the communities we serve because no one understands our society’s challenges like those who live them every day.
Our success is dependent on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, veterans, and people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
We believe in a future for everyone. As we engage directly in our communities, we work from a shared place of trust. We know that our communities care deeply about how information is collected, used, and shared. We do too. So when CZI builds products or tackles problems, we consider the community’s safety, privacy, and security at every step of the process. We call this Trustworthy By Design and our goal is to be world class at it.
We’re looking for a Privacy Program Manager to help us mature our Trustworthy By Design review program. In this role, you will help grow privacy review and record-keeping practices and policies (e.g. Data Protection Impact Assessments, Data Flow Diagrams), drive the runbooks to turn that thinking into effective processes, and partner closely with product and privacy counsels, engineers, and product managers all along the way.
You will report to the Director of Product and Privacy and be an early member of the CZI Legal and Grants team that helps build the culture of our team and the entire organization. If you are a mission-oriented builder who enjoys learning, running effective and efficient processes, writing, and collaborating across multiple functions, then this job is for you. We can’t wait to hear from you.
- Invest in systems and processes for ensuring consistency, effectiveness, and proper documentation of privacy and security decisions, and tasks to increase efficiency, internal transparency, and comply with laws
- Partner with Product and Privacy Counsel and Information Security to efficiently operate CZI’s Trustworthy By Design processes, including operationalizing processes for Data Subject Rights
- Help draft Data Protection Impact Assessments, Records of Processing, and technical Data Flow Diagrams
- Work cross-functionally with product and engineering teams across CZI to invest in continuous improvement of our data protection practices and ensure that privacy controls are implemented
- Contribute to general team and organizational operations, including taking on special projects or helping other functions, as necessary
- 5+ years of program management or paralegal experience. We are open to candidates that are returning to the workforce after a period away from it.
- Experience working in a fast-paced and frequently changing work environment
- Integrity and belief that it’s important to do the right thing even when it’s not easy
- A passion for privacy, information security, and deep curiosity about technology; CIPP, CISA or similar privacy and security-related professional certifications are a plus
- A strong sense of ownership and bringing the right level of urgency to our projects
- An enthusiasm for optimizing and scaling processes
- Sense of humor, initiative, and an ability to roll up your sleeves and get things done while thinking strategically and creatively
- A learning and growth mindset coupled with humility and mission- and team-oriented sensibilities
