Security Engineer: Privacy



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, May 2, 2023
You want to ensure Anthropic’s success enabled by regulatory compliance. You understand how to develop engineering for privacy and compliance controls while minimizing friction for staff, particularly our engineers and product team. You enjoy working cross-functionally to ensure compliance is built into systems from the start. As an experienced engineer, you know how to assess security risks, develop policies, implement controls and create automation to meet our commitments.
As AI becomes increasingly capable, compliance needs to evolve alongside it, which is why Anthropic is launching a new compliance team to shape the new field of AI-specific compliance. As part of this completely new team, you will help pioneer what securing AI systems looks like. This role will work on both the technical aspects of security and privacy (e.g. automating reporting and enforcement) but also building new infrastructure and finding new ways to attest to AI safety regulatory oversight.


  • Partner with software engineers and our Trust & Safety team to ensure regulatory compliance.
  • Perform compliance assessments and create automation to make them easier
  • Create security and privacy infrastructure and secure-by-default and private-by-default systems
  • Apply principle-of-least-privilege, reporting, logging, and transparency
  • Operationalize policies and continually adjust engineering based on staff feedback

You might be a great fit if you have the following experience

  • A few years of security and/or software engineering experience
  • Working cross-functionally to implement privacy policies

Strong candidates may also

  • Have at least 5 years of industry experience, or 3 years of industry experience and a Masters-equivalent
  • Have experience in all four areas of security, privacy, compliance, and engineering
  • Have experience supporting medium or large tech organizations
  • Care about AI safety risk scenarios

Candidates need not have

  • 100% of the skills needed to perform the job
  • Formal certifications or education credentials

Annual Salary (USD)

  • The expected salary range for this position is $280k - $320k.
