Job Description

About TRUSTe:

We’re coding the future of privacy. Join us.

Engineering at TRUSTe means building cutting-edge data privacy platforms for thousands of companies around the world. The products we ship have a direct, immediate impact on the way millions of users access and control their personal information online. From scaling privacy notice and choice for billions of online ad impressions, to pioneering website crawling technology, our privacy platforms are helping to shape the future of big data.

At their core, we design our products to facilitate data transparency, accountability, and user choice. At the end of the day we're in the trust-building business, not the data-limiting business. We believe that privacy, done right, actually encourages the exchange of data by fostering trust. We have over 5,000 clients who share this vision and leverage our products to build trusted environments where users feel comfortable sharing data in exchange for goods, services, and personalized experiences. 

Our new San Francisco headquarters reflect our company's work hard, play hard mentality. Conveniently located in downtown San Francisco, our offices sit directly adjacent to the Powell St. Muni and BART stop for easy commutes. We've got an outdoor ping-pong table and two spacious roof decks, a game room, and a well-stocked kitchen with plenty of caffeine and snacks to fuel coding binges. For after hours fun, join-in on regular company hacking events and happy hours (did we mention we have a kegerator on premises?). And, of course, we offer competitive salaries, bonuses, stock options, and full benefits. At TRUSTe work/life balance is a reality here with our Endless Summer program that allows you to take a reasonable amount of paid time away from the office for any personal need. To show we mean business, we hold a quarterly raffle where the winner must take a week off and TRUSTe will add $1,000 to your paycheck to cover vacation expenses. Apply today to join the TRUSTe team! Learn more at
