The DeID Match team focuses on distributing deidentified data and linking records that belong to the same individuals using entity resolution techniques. This solution is called Privacy Preserving Record Linkage (PPRL) where our focus on high precision and recall while emphasizing the privacy of the identities sets us apart. Match is a cloud-based solution that is able to process records in the order of billions using technologies such as Kubernetes, S3, Snowflake, Spark, and graph algorithms written in Java. You will work with data scientists to come up with privacy token designs, models for matching and analysis of linkage results. You will be responsible for managing the team to increase performance, scalability, adoption of Match and come up with ways to grow products in the deidentified space beyond linkage and distribution.

We are committed to building a diverse team of Datavanters who are smart, nice, and get things done where every Datavanter is empowered to bring their authentic self to their work. We are all responsible for stewarding a high-performance culture in which all Datavanters belong and thrive. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and experiences.

Our compensation philosophy is to be externally competitive, internally fair, and not win or lose on compensation. Salary ranges are developed with the support of benchmarks (competitive San Francisco rates for US-based roles) and industry best practices.

We're building a high-growth, high-autonomy culture. We rely less on job titles and more on cultivating an environment where anyone can contribute, the best ideas win, and personal growth is driven by expanding impact and less by title. This means we default to simple job titles (e.g., Software Engineer) rather than complex ones (e.g., Senior Software Engineer). The range posted is for a given job title, which can include multiple levels. Individual rates for the same job title may differ based on their level, responsibilities, skills, and experience for a specific job. The estimated salary range for this role is $180,000 - $280,000.

At the end of this application, you will find a set of voluntary demographic questions. If you choose to respond, your responses will be used to help us identify areas of improvement in our recruitment process. We can only see aggregate responses and are unable to view individual responses. In fact, we aren't even able to see if you've responded or not! Responding is your choice and it will not be used in any way in our hiring process.
