There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there.

They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance.

This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

Snowflake is seeking an experienced privacy attorney to help shape and mature our privacy program as we grow in size and expand our geographic footprint.

This role calls for a self-motivated team player who can proactively manage multiple projects and lead cross-functional teams in order to operationalize privacy priorities throughout the company.
