"Working at Ethyca has really let me expand my skillset. It's one of the good things about being part of a fast-growing team—there's always a fun new challenge to sink into, and always great people to jump in with you. Turns out building trust into systems is fun!"
"Starting a job in a completely remote environment was foreign and a little daunting to me (I'm sure many other employers and employees can relate to right now). However, the culture that Ethyca promotes and the people that work here truly made the experience seamless, fun, and productive."
Building tools to power internet trust takes a certain type of person. Here are five values that sit at the core of all we do:
Building trust is the bedrock of our business, so it also forms the basis for our culture. We establish and nurture trust amongst each other through encouraging open communication and cultivating an environment of safety. It's not sufficient to simply "ask" our customers and coworkers to trust us; we earn it by being transparent - allowing others to verify our work via shared documentation, tests, code, references, and more.
Our care for the work we do isn’t bounded by job title, business department, or hour of the day. We understand that points of urgent focus shift, and we proactively plug gaps where they arise. Today, a major engineering release needs volunteers for acceptance testing. Tomorrow, team input is required to ensure the success of a new design initiative. We understand that if we succeed, we will only succeed as a collective.
Life in a high-growth privacy startup requires being able to navigate wildly different terrains depending on the task at hand. At Ethyca, we mold our way of working to fit what’s in front of us; we are like water. We can take the time to think deeply and solve complicated problems, and we’re equally able to make rapid, impactful decisions on the fly. This fluidity lets us chart the most efficient path around any obstacle we face.
We expect that team members arrive with a demonstrable commitment to behaving ethically - to treat others as they wish to be treated. We do this because we believe truly respectful systems can only be built by teams of respectful individuals who treat others’ data as if it was their own. Thus only those who carry - and consult! - a moral compass can contribute to achieving our company’s mission.
We are driven forward everyday by an innate passion to learn about our users and our colleagues. At Ethyca, we are constantly asking questions, whether it be about a change in the industry, new product on the roadmap, customer launch, or even a coworkers weekend plans. We respectfully challenge ideas and embrace diverse opinions. We take pride in collaborating with our users and colleagues to help discover and explore creative solutions to “unsolvable” problems.

You’ll train and deploy models that streamline the difficult, error-prone process of tracking personal data across the thousands of datasets that power modern web products.
The success of our products relies on great documentation and thus your technical expertise will act as the “Welcome” mat for all who land on Ethyca’s doorstep.
In our mission to ensure that engineers have the tools they need to bake privacy into existing SDLC processes, adoption, engagement, and advocacy is essential for success.
“At Ethyca, we know restoring user trust in data-driven systems will take hard work. We’re building a team that believes the internet should work for everyone, and it’s this shared sense of purpose that makes our team special. Each one of us believes respect for user privacy is critical for the future of online community.
On Saturday March 14, 2020, the Ethyca team realized we wouldn’t be going back to our office in Manhattan’s Flatiron district any time soon. Like most, we didn’t realize just how dramatically our world was about to change, and for how long. And for us, there was an extra layer of complexity in the sudden shift to remote collaboration: our first customers had just onboarded and our team had just started to grow rapidly.
We evolved into the group that we are today through this unique set of circumstances. Throughout last year, we rapidly iterated on our approach to each aspect of how the company worked together; shipping product, ideating design, team socializing. Some efforts were very successful. Others were not! Throughout it all, we kept spirits high, attitudes inquisitive, and sought to treat our colleagues with empathy, always.
As we grow into a larger team that will continue supporting distributed and in-person contribution, we’ll seek to preserve the spirit that propelled us forward through 2020 while much of the world stood still.
We’re building world-class tools, developer-friendly APIs, and deployed applications that make it easy to provide users with control over their personal data. If you’re interested in baking trust into complex systems, get in touch!
