Stripe is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Businesses of all sizes—from new startups to public companies like Amazon and Salesforce—use our software to accept online payments and run technically sophisticated financial operations in more than 100 countries. By helping businesses accept payments from anywhere in the world and accelerating the economic shift from offline to online, we aim to increase the GDP of the internet.

The Global Security and Safety team is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of Stripes, business continuity and crisis management, threat assessment and mitigation, and the physical security of our offices around the world. You will be able to actively shape the Business Continuity and Crisis Management function while we build it out over the coming years and work for a rapidly growing company in a fast paced environment. This position will report directly to the Business Continuity & Crisis Management Program Lead.

You will:

  • Analyze and understand IT gaps on essential business functions or information systems to identify acceptable recovery time periods and resource requirements
  • Identify opportunities for strategic improvement or mitigation of business interruption and other risks caused by business, regulatory, or industry-specific change initiatives
  • Create, review or update existing business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management plans
  • Maintain and update emergency management plans for recovery decision making and communications, continuity of critical departmental processes, or temporary shut-down of non-critical departments to ensure continuity of operation and governance
  • Maintain training and awareness by conducting at minimum, annual tests of plans to ensure adherence to compliance requirements, and general comfort in executing on a plan as needed
  • Write and track reports to summarize testing and recommended remediations activities, including descriptions of goals, planning, scheduling, execution, results, analysis, conclusions, and status of recommendations
  • Build cross-functional relationships to successfully get others to buy-in and support the business continuity program
  • Act as a coordinator for continuity efforts after a disruption event
  • Assist with audit preparation/interviews and RFP requests

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • 5+ years’ experience implementing and operating global programs for a business continuity, disaster recovery or crisis management program
  • Strong project management background and excellent organizational/communications skills
  • One or more certifications in Business Continuity from DRI International, Business Continuity Institute or equivalent or other relevant certifications

You should include these in your application: 

  • Your resume and/or LinkedIn profile
