We’re reinventing ourselves. We’re completely rethinking our publishing products and global components in order to better engage with our users and provide amazing experiences across different Schibsted applications and across any device. We have access to the biggest and best brands in publishing in Scandinavia, a dynamic user base that numbers in the millions, and the freedom to break away from any and all technical legacy. There’s a blank page in front of us. We want you to come help us fill it.
Users are expecting more  personalized services and we need to collect users data in order to provide those services, and we need to do this in a way that the user is in control. In order to accelerate and pave the way for new privacy functionality we are building a set of privacy enhancing technologies (PETs). We aim to build these technologies in conjunction with our privacy goal of maximizing the information utility while minimizing the privacy risks and being compliant with data protection laws.
Privacy Engineering is looking for a Software Manager to lead a team of world-class back-end and front-end engineers to deliver solutions that power Schibsteds Privacy Enhancing Technologies. This is a hands-on role in the development of software systems to support existing and new product features. This role requires working closely with cross-functional teams to effectively coordinate the complex interdependencies inherent in this role.
As a manager for the privacy engineering team, you will lead the design, implementation, test and launch of PETs that can be reused or integrated across various components and Schibsted sites. These PETs are built in collaboration with other engineering, legal  and privacy product teams. Examples of these PETs include privacy policy engine, user managed access, automated data inventories, automated privacy reviews and differential privacy as well as anonymization processes.
