About the team

The Corporate Security team is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of Stripes, operational resilience, business continuity & crisis management, threat assessment and mitigation, and the physical security of our offices around the world. This role reports directly to the Head of Business Resilience. In this role, the Third Party Business Continuity Program Manager will help to maintain and mature our Third Party Business Continuity (TPBC) program, ensuring Stripe’s critical and important third-party vendors' business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) programs support and align with Stripe’s BC/DR needs and meet all global & regional regulatory requirements.

What you’ll do 

  • Develop, implement, and maintain TPBC policies, standards, and procedures to ensure onboarding and ongoing health monitoring capabilities
  • Oversee and manage a vendor service provider that performs TPBC risk assessments to include but not limited to identifying issues/control gaps, analyzing gaps, documenting and reporting findings, and recommending remediation plans to management. May require individual performance of these duties.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across Stripe (including global third party risk management, legal, partnerships, and outsourcing) to ensure TPBC risks are understood and effectively managed
  • Monitor critical and important third-party incidents, identifying the cause, remediation, future risks, and escalating to leadership as needed
  • Prepare regular reports on the TPBC program status, updating on third-party risks and how they are managed and represent the team in various internal risk and control committees, working groups, committees, and boards
  • Review, partner, and engage in contract negotiations, particularly concerning Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery clauses
  • Identify opportunities for improvements and risk mitigations for TPBC; escalate as needed
  • Maintain and deliver TPBC  training materials annually, and assist with audit preparation/interviews and RFP requests

Who you are

You are an individual with a genuine passion for business continuity and the ability to drive detailed execution, working collaboratively across different teams and time zones. You are comfortable working independently and within a cross-functional team to improve resilience while ensuring regulatory compliance. You thrive in a fast paced ever-changing environment and enjoy having a plan, but are able to pivot flawlessly to take a risk based approach to prioritize emerging issues. 

You don’t accept the status quo and what’s been done before as a benchmark, rather that you have a proven track record of building and maturing programs and possess a unique ability to problem-solve that is uniquely aligned with what’s right for the business and its users.

We're looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.


Minimum requirements

  • Successful track record in implementing, scaling, and maturing a third-party business continuity risk assessment program, including the development and maintenance of frameworks, policies, standards, and procedures
  • Deep understanding of business continuity and disaster recovery and strong analytical skills
  • Excellent communication and project management skills. You must have the ability to effectively prioritize and manage multiple projects concurrently, often within tight deadlines.
  • Comprehension of regulatory requirements, and how they impact the program
  • Effectively managing vendors to drive operational improvements and efficiencies
  • Developed and presented KPIs to facilitate discussions and decision-making processes
  • Hold or willing to hold at least one certification in Business Continuity from DRII or BCI


Preferred qualifications

  • Ideally, you have 3+ years of experience in TPBC program management or operating global programs for business continuity and disaster recovery, particularly in financial services
  • Extensive knowledge and implementation experience of TPBC and/or outsourcing service provider regulatory requirements in the United Kingdom, Ireland, India, or Singapore
  • You are creative and can employ 'out of the box' thinking to proactively determine business resiliency and assess emerging industry risk
  • Experience in partaking in and leading third-party exercises to test the capacity and effectiveness of the resilience, recovery, and response plans

Hybrid work at Stripe
