Full Time
At TerraTrue, we’re building the future of privacy and security. Our platform digitizes privacy programs, transforming the work that teams do before they ship new features from slow, manual, and ad hoc to fast, automated, and scalable. With one workflow, TerraTrue maps new features to the world’s privacy laws and an org’s own rules, auto-populates workflows, and updates data maps, reports, and analytics in real time. Our innovative approach to privacy is why innovative companies like Robinhood, Lyft, Roku, and Foursquare are using TerraTrue to move fast and get privacy right.

That’s where you come in. We’re looking for software engineers who share our passion, our pride in ego-less collaboration, and our drive to build incredible things. But that’s not all. We’re building a company where collegiality, respect, and good old-fashioned generosity of spirit are non-negotiable traits. After all, the only way we know how to build products that let other teams thrive is by building a company where our own team thrives. 

You’ll be joining a growing and well-funded team coming from places like Snap, Google, Cisco, and OpenText. This is a chance to transform how modern companies build privacy into what they design, ship a product that users love, and help chart the course of privacy and innovation.

Your responsibilities:

You thrive on developing responsive and delightful applications that customers love and connect with. In this role, you’ll develop and maintain new server functionality to grow our product.

And you’ll influence the platform architecture and all our other innovations.
