About the role

At Strac, we protect our customer's sensitive data like SSN, Drivers License, Passport, Tax Returns, Bank Statements, etc. in a unique way where they don't have to worry about any of security and compliance risks

We are hiring our next software engineer to join the team! As our engineering hire, you will be a pivotal member of our company, leading product and engineering decisions. You will own projects from start to finish, speaking directly with customers, and then architecting and building the final deliverable.

As a member of our founding team, you will be expected to help drive decisions outside of engineering as well. From defining our product roadmap, to contributing to our go-to-market strategy, Strac is a great opportunity for you to learn what it takes to truly build a product users need.

  • Highly motivated and want to work with exceptional engineers to grow


In addition to base pay and high equity, Strac employees get Health Insurance (Medical, Dental and Vision) and Life Insurance

About Strac

Strac is solving a problem that millions of businesses face everyday: how to protect sensitive data? We are on a mission to eliminate personal data risks. Strac protects businesses by securing their customer's personal data like SSN, Drivers License, Passport, EIN, etc. in a unique way where businesses do not have to worry about security or compliance risks while still getting their business done without getting disrupted.

Strac DLP (Data Loss Prevention) and CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) do this by automatically detecting and masking sensitive messages/documents across email, slack, zendesk, mobile/web apps, backend servers, and various SaaS solutions. Our customers love our redaction experience.

We are a team of ex-Amazonians who collectively spent 30+ years at Amazon in Payments building their secure zone that stored/manged billions of cards/bank accounts and connected with hundreds of payment partners. Our unique Amazon engineering experience along side our initial traction on customers makes it exciting for engineers to build and grow.

We also raised $3.5MM seed round from exceptional investors. You can read more about that here: https://techcrunch.com/2022/07/19/strac-plugs-into-slack-onedrive-and-more-to-automatically-redact-sensitive-info/
