Hi! Before diving into the job details, let's give you some context on who we are and what to expect when joining the team.

Typeform, launched in 2012 in Barcelona, drives more than 500 million digital interactions per year and integrates with hundreds of other business-critical tools. We’re expanding from a small Barcelona-based business to a truly international and remote company.

Our vision is a world of more personal business relationships. Through our no-code Saas platform, we believe we can create that world by living our mission: To bring people closer with better conversations. We turn digital interactions into human connections, by offering people-friendly forms, quizzes, surveys, and asynchronous video solutions.

To do so, we look for people who are curious, ready to own their objectives, and passionate about taking organizations to their next chapter. But we are aware it’s not for everyone, our environment is perfect for those willing to become a change agent and roll up their sleeves to build our rocket ship.

About the team

Typeform is used by about 2% of the world’s population every year, with millions of Typeforms answered daily—and we’re constantly growing. 

As data processors, we want to reassure our customers that their data is safe with us under all circumstances.  Furthermore, as we scale and attract more prominent customers, achieving the correct level of compliance becomes ever more critical.

About the Role

In your role as Global Head of Information Security, you are responsible for continuously assessing and improving our information security maturity across all areas of our rapidly expanding business. You will lead a team responsible for all elements of information security in a B2B SaaS environment.

Your success depends on high quality risk analysis and risk management. Further, you play an instrumental role in educating internal teams, such as Engineering and Product, as well as external stakeholders, customers, and vendors about security.

Supporting, implementing, and operationalizing security within the organization is your responsibility. You'll translate compliance and risk management policies and guidelines into practical product engineering practices. In addition, we will ensure our platform is secure to prevent a threat to our success.

Things you will do:

  • Lead a, multi-level security and compliance organization with a focus on enabling the security team to support our external stakeholders, customers, vendors and internal stakeholders with information security topics
  • Be a strategic security advisor to all executive leaders of Typeform
  • Provide leadership in security incident responses, threat analyses, security awareness and compliance
  • Develop, implement, and manage robust Information Security Management Systems
    Ensure company compliance with information security policies.
  • Develop and implement a proactive and consistent approach to security, including platform security, product security, corporate security and physical security.
  • Enhance our security policies, procedures, and guidelines on a continuous basis by conducting ongoing assessments and analyses.
  • Ensure the security of new vendors and suppliers (Monitor closely the activities of external vendors who have access to the internal network)

What you already bring to the table:

  • Significant experience in a similar information security leadership position, within a B2B SaaS environment
  • Hold relevant Information Security Certifications
  • An understanding of agile software development and secure software development lifecycles.
  • Strong communication, critical thinking and problem-solving skills with a drive to take initiative.
  • Experience integrating security into small teams' workflows and experiences
  • Certifications and audits with a strong track record
  • A meticulous and attention-to-detail approach
  • An extremely process-oriented person 
  • Ensure that Engineering and Security strategies are aligned
  • Having hands-on experience with ISO 27001, whether implementing it or auditing it, is a plus.
