Consumer Reports is seeking a Project Leader to oversee testing projects as a member of our new Digital Lab team — a group of tenacious journalists, privacy experts, product testers, technologists and policy analysts dedicated to shining a light on the data privacy and security issues that consumers increasingly face, as well as examining the broader topics of fair market competition, transparency, and consumer choice in today's marketplace. By scaling our capabilities and expertise for the digital era, Consumer Reports is expanding efforts to protect, educate, and empower consumers in our connected world while holding companies to higher standards.
We need someone with hands-on experience writing, applying, and analyzing policies related to privacy and security in connected products. We’re looking for the kind of people who have actually read (and understood) the terms of service, who understand the importance of transparency and the complexities of trust and veracity, who have opinions on GDPR and a US-centric general privacy law, or who have advised product engineers on privacy/security design principles for an app. This person would augment our team with the skill set and investigative leadership we need to be effective and timely, while establishing good practices and collaborating with team members to produce solid, repeatable results.
The Project Leader oversees testing projects, ensures that testing protocols and procedures are followed, and methodologies are developed to meet our continually transforming testing objectives to analyze policies related to privacy and security in connected products.
