Software Engineering Internship (Summer 2023)
Seattle, Washington /
Part Time - 10 weeks
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.

Privacy Dynamics does not accept unsolicited referrals or CVs from any source other than directly from candidates or approved agencies with written agreements in place and instructed on specified roles.
Unsolicited CVs received from any agency not engaged as outlined above will be considered a "free gift", and there will be no fees due should we choose to contact the candidate directly. Receipt of unsolicited CVs will in no way establish any prior claim to the candidate should they also be submitted by another agency. We consider this type of activity an attempt to lay claim to a given candidate and therefore entirely inappropriate.
Any submission of unsolicited CVs to us will be deemed as full acceptance of these terms. We only engage with agencies who are respectful of candidates, businesses and other agencies. We abide by our agreements with them and maintain genuine, straight-forward and lasting relationships which generate the highest caliber candidates for our business.
