About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky – supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

As a Director of Physical Security, you’ll get to: 

  • Manage the day-to-day physical security and safety operations for the custody team
  • Drive the development and deployment of a comprehensive physical security program for the custody team for all Paxos offices
  • Partner with internal stakeholders and third parties to ensure current and new offices are designed with a security first approach
  • Partner with leadership team on the security strategy, goals and long term roadmap
  • Establish physical security policies and assessment and inspection protocols to review, identify, and mitigate any security vulnerabilities or gaps
  • Plan and prepare for crisis response, disaster recovery, evacuation, workplace violence, and other emergency or adverse events
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • 10+ years of experience as a security leader in government, corporate or both.
  • Experience analyzing information, determine contexts, take appropriate action, and choose the course of action
  • Experience communicating, presenting and fielding questions to a board, regulators, auditors and clients
