Job Description


About TRUSTe:

Be a part of a fast growing Silicon Valley style company in Cebu, where you will help build fun and interesting technology and be part of a team working with real Silicon Valley companies. We build Internet security and privacy infrastructure, video-games, and some professional enterprise outsourcing. Part of your responsibility will be to work on technology projects that we are doing with our partners in California and elsewhere, and the rest will revolve around in-house research and development projects, which include the development of iPhone/iPad video games. These positions may require long hours and hard work. Your job may result in feelings of technological superiority. Serious candidates should be prepared to encounter challenging problems and unexpected opportunities.

TRUSTe is the market leader in privacy management solutions, enabling businesses to optimize their e-commerce, mobile, cloud, social, and advertising channels. We are best known for our green Certified Privacy Seal now displayed on over 4,000 websites (including Apple, Disney, Groupon, Verizon, and Zynga) and seen by millions of customers each year. We are experiencing rapid growth driven by the increased use of customer data to power new online channels like targeted ads, mobile apps, and cloud services – and the corresponding demands from consumers and regulators for more transparency and control over this data usage. Businesses turn to TRUSTe to build / protect their brand, maintain compliance, and increase sales. We have strong financials, are backed by leading venture capital firms (including Accel), and have a deep and talented executive team including veterans from AOL, HP, Double Click, Google, VeriSign, and Yahoo.
