Team
At Ethyca, we know that restoring 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 that shared sense of purpose that makes our workplace special. Each one of us feels that respect for user privacy is critical for the future of online community.

– Cillian Kieran, CEO 

I believe Internet citizens should be able to control how their data is processed, and I really believe that online businesses want to give them that power. I joined Ethyca to help solve this problem and met a bunch of folks committed to giving control back to internet users like you and me. Every day we get closer!

– Kelly Huang, VP Product

It’s safe to say that 2020 has been full of unforeseen challenges! I think it’s a testament to our great people and culture that we just kept powering through the transition to work-from-home. And given how much we’ve grown together since then, I know the future’s bright no matter our set up.

Kelly Huang

VP of Product

Kelly likes to call herself Ethyca’s number one cleaner-upper, but in truth that’s only a small part of her day-to-day responsibilities. Cleaner-upper, wire-framer, trail-blazer, there’s no hat she doesn’t wear on occasion. She keeps her airhorn app open to celebrate product milestones and damage Simon’s ears.
