About Us

Opaque Systems is a data privacy startup born out of UC Berkeley. Our founding team comprises leading computer science researchers in security and systems with extensive prior entrepreneurship experience (Databricks, Anyscale, PreVeil). We've raised  $22 million in Series A funding, bringing the company’s total financing to $31.6 million. The round was led by Walden Catalyst Ventures, with participation from new investors, Storm Ventures and Thomvest Ventures, as well as all existing investors, Intel Capital, Race Capital, The House Fund, and FactoryHQ

Our mission is to unleash confidential data from its current security constraints by building a next generation platform to drive secure analytics and machine learning directly on encrypted data. Our platform is powered by cutting-edge technology that builds upon years of published research and commercializes the MC² Project.

We believe that diversity in backgrounds and opinions powers growth, creativity, and new ideas. We cherish inclusivity and acceptance, and encourage candidates from underrepresented backgrounds to apply so we can engage in a conversation about how you can amplify our team with your unique experience.

We’re looking for people who:
∙ Will help us set and maintain a high-performance and inclusive culture
∙ Share our passion for consumer and data privacy, and our vision for disrupting big data analytics and machine learning with confidential computing
∙ Are self-starters — those with detail and quality-oriented approaches who want to make impact and who will help shape the company


What You'll Do

    • Enable the execution of various analytics and machine learning libraries and frameworks within secure enclaves
    • Leverage your security and systems experience to build a secure and performant system
    • Design and develop cloud services to manage trust among mutually distrustful entities
    • Scale, optimize and benchmark our distributed data processing engine
    • Actively participate in customer POCs
    • Communicate your work to a broader audience through talks, tutorials, and blog posts
    • Work closely with product and marketing to refine and advertise what you've built
    • Help us build and shape a world class company

What We Look For

    • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science, or a related field
    • 4-7 years of experience
    • Experience building out large scale, fault-tolerant data processing systems
    • Familiarity with memory management and/or fluency in C/C++
    • Strong CS fundamentals in operating systems, networking, databases, and/or computer security
    • Experience working with secure enclaves (definitely not required but a plus!)
