First hire at Y Combinator-funded Security startup

at YC Startup in Palo Alto, CA   —   Jul 23, 2014   |  
Palo Alto, CA - Full-time. High equity + competitive pay.

In this age where users are rapidly losing control and accountability of their own data, our goal is to bring usable security and privacy controls back to the users. We are building a security application and service that solves a fundamental, massive problem for consumers and businesses in cloud storage and cloud-based sharing. Ours is a pervasive application which run both on servers and client devices. We already have several customers currently testing our alpha, and many more waiting to test our future releases.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial, generalist engineer who has a solid understanding of software engineering and computer science. Building our product requires getting your hands dirty with low-level systems code, but we want someone entrepreneurial enough to do what needs to be done, including learning/writing some Rails or Javascript or make pretty boxes using CSS. We are looking for somebody that loves designing secure, bulletproof applications, and is very good at it. You will be fully involved in decisions making at all levels -- both with respect to the product and the business.

We are a team of two, and both of us engineers (with PhDs, though we don't let that hold us back :). We love to try out crazy, "impossible" ideas and we don't give up easily. We work hard but are also pretty good at having fun, including happy hours, soccer, climbing, surfing, poker games, etc. We are based in Palo Alto; our office has a fully stocked fridge + all you can eat snacks.
