About Us
Opaque Systems is a data privacy startup born out of UC Berkeley. Our founding team comprises leading computer science professors and graduate students in security and systems, who also have extensive prior entrepreneurship experience (Databricks, PreVeil). The company raised a $9.5M Series Seed from Intel Capital, Race Capital, The House Fund, and FactoryHQ.
Our mission is to unlock the potential of confidential data that is currently locked down due to privacy concerns. To make confidential data useful without compromising on privacy, we’re building a next generation platform to drive secure analytics and machine learning directly on encrypted data. Our platform is powered by cutting-edge technology that builds upon years of published research and commercializes the MC² Project.
We’re looking for people who:
∙ Will help us set and maintain a high-performance and inclusive culture
∙ Share our passion for consumer and data privacy, and our vision for disrupting big data analytics with confidential computing
∙ Are self-starters — those with detail and quality-oriented approaches who want to make impact and who will help shape the company.

What You'll Do

    • Build and extend Opaque's scalable secure analytics engine built on top of Apache Spark SQL, using distributed query processing and vectorization
    • Work with secure enclaves to replace and rewrite the execution layer of various computation libraries and frameworks with a secure equivalent
    • Design and develop cloud services to manage trust among mutually distrustful entities
    • Benchmark and optimize our data processing engine
    • Actively participate in customer POCs
    • Communicate your work to a broader audience through talks, tutorials, and blog posts
    • Work closely with product and marketing to refine and advertise what you've built
    • Help us build and shape a world class company

What We Look For

    • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science, or a related field
    • 5+ years of experience
    • Experience building out large scale, fault-tolerant data processing systems
    • Familiarity with memory management and/or fluency in C/C++
    • Strong CS fundamentals in operating systems, networking, databases, and/or computer security
    • Experience working with secure enclaves (definitely not required but a plus!)


    • Comprehensive health coverage including medical, dental, and vision
    • 401(k) Plan
    • Equity awards
    • Flexible time off
Note that due to the ongoing situation, we will be working remotely until further notice.
We're excited to build a diverse team and encourage all to apply!
