Would you like to work with protecting peoples privacy online? There are many engineering jobs available that claim to be about privacy, but they should call many of those jobs anti-privacy: the task is often to help the employer to continue unhindered to collect as much data as possible.

It generally doesnt take more engineers for most of these companies to solve privacy for their users: they could just stop collecting most of that information in the first place.

If you want to work with privacy in the sense of protecting people from being spied upon and not the other way around consider coming to work for us. We call it actual privacy.
