The Job

Legal and Compliance are partners across the whole business here at Flo. They watch over everything: Flo’s privacy programme, compliance with regulatory obligations, contract management, IP enforcement… you name it. 

The team’s divided into three groups - Privacy & Data Protection, Regulatory & Compliance, and Legal Services, each managing its own area. 

As far as our Privacy team is concerned, it doesn’t get more exciting for privacy professionals working in a rapidly growing healthtech business. 

This role’s all about delivering Flo’s continued commitment to data privacy by design.

Reporting to our VP of Privacy, it sits as part of a team of six doing some really exciting work.

Having achieved our ISO 27701 Privacy certification (the first business of our kind with it!), and having launched Anonymous mode (recently making it open source), we’re exploring the future of privacy in AI, as well as enhancing our privacy policies and systems, and helping to ensure privacy by design and as default across our business.

With one of our team departing for world travel, we’re looking for a permanent replacement to act as Privacy Counsel and help lead our commitment to maintaining ISO standards.
