About us

Privacy Dynamics’ mission is to empower innovative and ethical data teams by improving their ability to generate high quality anonymized data. 
 
Personal data is being collected and used everyday. 87% of U.S. citizens are identifiable by as few as three common data points. Meanwhile, now 66% of countries around the world have legislation in place to protect our personal privacy. 

Every organization now shares data privacy concerns when they collect and use customer data. In fact, 55% of all data collected by companies is currently dark data; meaning that despite good intentions, usage is murky, and attempts to anonymize the data has yielded mediocre results at best. Until now, anonymized data has struggled to achieve a level of accuracy necessary for deep analytical insights or reliable machine learning. 
Privacy Dynamics is working to make anonymized data just as useful as the raw data it’s derived from, while minimizing the growing number of regulations and risks that data teams need to account for every day. 

We believe our micro-aggregation process provides engineers and analysts with the most accurate anonymized data possible, giving them confidence to use it for internal analysis, machine learning, or publishing to partners. 
 
Privacy Dynamics is backed by a passionate group of investors (Root, Crosscut, Upside Partnership, Slack, Data Community Fund, and Aviso Ventures) and angels with experience building and leading companies like Looker, Signal Sciences, Auth0, Flatiron Health, Puppet, and Square. 

Why we're hiring for this role

We are geeks. We are passionate, spirited, individuals that seek fulfillment at work, in an environment that is inclusive and supportive of us as whole individuals. We are motivated to do good work by the mission of the company and work hard to have a hand in improving the relationship between privacy and data. That's why we are looking for a team of technical-minded folks who focus on driving monthly active usage as a post-sales measurement of success.

Our users are realizing the power of Privacy Dynamics as data teams change their behavior regarding data privacy. Data Scientists, analysts, and even marketers no longer need to wait for data engineering and compliance to conclude data has been properly de-identified. When properly deployed, Privacy Dynamics unleashes self-service access to data that can speed up the delivery of critical insights, new products, and valuable analytics.
