Company Description

Have you ever worked for a company that actually wanted you to bring your whole self to work every single day?

About Tradeshift
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.

Security Team 

We support developers, operations, IT and the overall company security posture as well as being responsible for maintaining our compliance program where we have achieved SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, ISAE 3402 Type II, ISO 27001 and PCI Level 1 compliance.

As a forward thinking cloud based SaaS company we believe heavily in automation and build our security controls and processes as such is a driving principle for how our program is oriented.

We believe very much in automation as the key to scalable compliance and in finding positive business outcomes over saying “No”. We’re against “checking the boxes” as a way to manage compliance and security and as such are looking for creative problem solvers with a technical background who are as comfortable getting their hands dirty understanding technical solutions as they are with partnering with a diverse set of people to develop effective and scalable compliance controls.
