Senior Product Manager – Privacy and Security

Onfido is the new identity standard for the internet. That means we only need an image of your ID and a selfie to prove that you’re you. In doing so, we help millions of people connect to the services they need and love more easily, speedily and safely than ever before, whether it’s renting a car or opening a bank account. Our vision is to create an open world where identity is the key to access.

We’ve received over $200 million in funding from world-class tech investors including TPG Growth, Microsoft, Salesforce to back our vision. And we’re just getting started.

You’ll be part of a mature Product organisation, with strong leadership and mission owning the full roadmap and delivery of your product domain. Distributed across the USA, Product works closely with adjacent teams like Engineering, Product Design, Machine Learning Research, and Business Intelligence.


The role

This role will be based in the Customer Platform domain, which enables the core technology and looks at the holistic customer experience (API, developer experience, dashboard, analytics, privacy and enterprise security).

Specifically, this role will lead the Privacy & Enterprise Security team within Customer Platform, which provides infrastructure, services and features to ensure Onfido’s leading position in the Enterprise identity verification market . Working with complex organisations, and within the context of a machine-learning-powered product relying on heavily sensitive data (eg. ID documents, biometrics), this is a unique opportunity to work on challenging questions in the industry, around developing differentiated privacy and security features that combine privacy rights, fraud detection performance, and regulatory requirements.

The role will involve:

  • Developing a deep understanding of Enterprise customer needs, so as to be able to best provide the services and platform features to deliver outstanding customer experiences
  • Creating a strong vision for Privacy & Enterprise Security domain, aligning both the team and wider stakeholders to ensure buy-in
  • Strategic and tactical roadmapping and planning – developing and prioritising the plans for implementation
  • Prototyping and development – working with designers and engineers to provide product requirements for proposed features
  • Releasing – Planning, communicating, and rolling out releases and functionality
  • Agile delivery approaches – augmenting, refining and prioritising backlogs and verifying sprint deliverables
  • Collaboration – working with other Product Managers and our Tech function to improve internal processes
