Data protection at scale to drive innovation at scale


With the right data, scientists could cure diseases faster, engineers could reduce carbon footprint, or teachers could shape future generations better. However, data becomes available only if we protect users’ privacy. Protecting privacy has become a generational problem and has a far-reaching impact. We are on the mission to find ways to protect data security and privacy while unlocking data to drive the world. 


Bringing Engineering to Data Privacy & Security

As privacy engineers, we are interested in finding practical solutions more than academic research. Therefore, we are inventing ways to solve data privacy/protection at scale.


Mountaineers attempt scaling challenging peaks. Racing teams crave to race in Formula 1. As engineers, we love tackling complex problems. 

For us, engineering is a mindset. You need not be trained as an engineer to have an engineering mindset. We define engineering mindset: Do you have the courage to tackle challenging problems? Are you excited about solving a problem elegantly and practically? 


We’re a close-knit team, and we’ve worked on enterprise data, AI, security, and privacy engineering across the globe. We each have many years of experience in the field, and, like you, we’re still learning. We’re excited to apply our knowledge to solve customer problems.
