  • Build privacy compliance program outside of technical implementation of the IAB CCPA Framework/LSPA and IAB TCF 2.0
  • Assist product teams with privacy reviews, open licensing matters, regulatory issues, and privacy/security by design
  • Depending on seniority, serve as the company’s Chief Privacy Officer
  • Support the continuous improvement of legal processes and corporate governance.
