About the role

We’re seeking a highly knowledgeable and experienced full stack developer with strong NodeJS experience who enjoys early stage environments that provide freedom to move fast and ship new customer-facing products and features at high velocity. You’ll work closely with the founders of the company and have a high degree of influence and input into the direction of the product and company. The right candidate will have a high degree of versatility and excels at creating software at all layers of web application platforms. The role requires outstanding communication and customer empathy skills. Since we are a remote first company, you will simultaneously need to be able to collaborate well, and be self-directed and work independently.

This role is a contract role, but we are open to contract to full time hire for someone that proves themselves as a core part of the team over time.

The ideal person will be passionate about building consumer data privacy software, and will have experience across most of these areas:

  • NodeJS and web development
  • Writing tests
  • Asynchronous jobs execution / event brokers (RabbitMQ, Kafka)
  • Databases - Postgres, SQL, and NoSQL (Redis, ElasticSearch, MongoDB, Cassandra)
  • User data security best practices
  • Designing core, backend software components
  • Implementing integrations with third-party APIs
  • Diagnosing and addressing performance issues
  • Kubernetes, micro-services, and resource management
  • AWS, GCP, Azure
  • Bonus if you have experience working in the consumer privacy or consumer data industries, Python and automation tools

Why you should join Optery

Optery is a fast-growing venture backed consumer data privacy company building opt out software that removes people’s private information from data brokers. Our mission is to put consumers in control of their personal data, and we have a vision for a safer world through digital privacy.

Our opt out software prevents identity theft and fraud, reduces the surface area of attack for phishing attempts and spam, and prevents people’s private information from showing up in Google search results. Anyone can create an account for free to receive a personalized Exposure Report summarizing where their information is posted online and being openly sold by data brokers. We cover 225+ web sites and data brokers and typically find 95+ sites posting and selling the private information of each individual that creates an account.

Opt out software is a nascent category with enormous potential to make the world a safer place through data privacy, and re-define how the $300 billion dollar market for consumer data works for consumers.

We are backed by Y Combinator and other world-class investors. Our team members come from companies such as Accenture, BlueKai, Cleanly, Gigya, Lusha, and Oracle.
