About Skyflow:

Skyflow is a data privacy vault company built to radically simplify how companies isolate, protect, and govern their customers’ most sensitive data. With its global network of data privacy vaults, Skyflow is also a comprehensive solution for companies around the world looking to meet complex data localization requirements. Skyflow currently supports a diverse customer base that spans verticals like fintech, retail, travel, and healthcare.

Skyflow is headquartered in Palo Alto, California and was founded in 2019. For more information, visit www.skyflow.com or follow on X (formerly Twitter) and LinkedIn.

About the role:

As a Backend Software Engineer  you will be responsible for developing a state-of-the-art SaaS solution that enables enterprises to govern and protect their sensitive data. You will contribute to performance engineering efforts and ensure low-latency and high-throughput transactions at scale. You will participate and be responsible for enforcing best practices in software quality, security, testing and documentation.

We know great software engineers come from diverse backgrounds so no single individual may have all the desired skills on day one. But if you are the kind of software engineer who would have loved to engineer solutions for Stripe or Twilio API's, or the Slack or Zendesk app, or the Snowflake or MongoDB platform - we want to talk to you.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Proficient in one or more programming languages like Golang (preferred), C/C++, Python
  • Experience in performance engineering: developing high-throughput, low-latency systems
  • Deep understanding of algorithms, data structures, scalability, and distributed systems
  • Privacy, authorization/authentication engineering is a huge plus
  • Experience with continuous integration, writing testable code, and test-driven development
  • Proven track record of delivering cloud-native distributed SaaS platforms at scale, and with a meaningful adoption
  • Traits such as being a fast learner, adaptable to changing landscape and most importantly a strong believer in being hands-on


  • Responsible for designing and developing Privacy APIs and backend infrastructure to support large-scale data and privacy workflows
  • Contribute to performance engineering efforts and ensure low-latency and high-throughput transactions at scale
  • Participate in building and implementing effective test strategies and developing software with high-agility and zero downtime
  • Collaborate with security and privacy engineers to deliver state-of-the-art privacy solutions


  • Excellent Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance Options (Varies by Country)
  • Generous Flexible PTO
  • Flexible Hours
  • Generous Equity

At Skyflow, we believe that diverse teams are the strongest teams. We invite applicants of all genders, races, ethnicities, nationalities, ages, religions, sexual orientations, disability statuses, educational experiences, family situations, and socio-economic backgrounds.
