With more than 330,000 workplaces in over 100 countries using Deputy to streamline scheduling, communication, engagement, and onboarding for millions of shift workers, we empower businesses with the tools and insights to simplify compliance and build thriving workplaces in every community.
Our team, which sits across three continents, is driven by an empathy-first approach. We believe that our best work comes from putting our own employees’ experiences and the experiences of the managers, shift workers and business owners we support at the forefront of what we do.

Deputy is looking for an experienced Director of Product Compliance to ensure that our workforce management SaaS solution adheres to applicable legal and regulatory requirements. This role will be accountable for end-to-end global product compliance, initially with a focus on ensuring that our software complies with Australia’s modern awards and US wage and hour laws, but with an eye toward broader regulatory compliance in all aspects of the product.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in and passion for product compliance, ideally with a workforce-management or payroll software company. You should be familiar with regulatory requirements around employee scheduling, timekeeping, and pay in Australia and/or the US. One of Deputy’s key values is to Lead With Integrity and we are looking for a professional with the highest ethical standards to ensure that we are always deserving of the trust that our customers and end-users place in us to Simplify Shift Work.
Although we are predominantly a San Francisco based team, we are totally happy for someone to be based anywhere in the US Pacific timezone & work fully remotely. #LI-Remote
