Senior Software Engineer, Developer Experience (REMOTE - Bangalore, India or Palo Alto, CA)

About Skyflow:

We are Skyflow, a Silicon Valley startup that has built the world’s first data privacy vault delivered as an API. Our mission is to transform how businesses handle and protect their users’ financial, healthcare, and personal information — the data that powers our digital economy. Inspired by the zero trust data vaults that Apple and Netflix built to handle customer data, we've built a cloud-based vault that is available through a simple and elegant API. With Skyflow, developers can easily build best-of-breed data privacy, security and compliance directly into their applications, the same way they use Stripe, Twilio, or Okta.

Skyflow is based in Palo Alto California, with offices in Bangalore, India, and team members working from locations all around the world. We have former Executives and Leaders from the likes of Salesforce, Google, Twilio, and Oracle. Come join us!

About the role:

As a Senior Software Engineer, Developer Experience, you will be responsible for designing and developing important facets of our Developer Experience which sits at the very heart of Skyflows security and privacy platform. Specifically you will design and develop our APIs, SDKs, documentation platform, and developer onboarding tools, while enforcing best practices in software quality, security, testing and documentation. This is a high-impact role for the business as you'll be responsible for the APIs of an API-first platform, as well as opening up a new avenue for self-serve growth at Skyflow. Developers are core to what we do - We build for developers. Every user of Skyflow will use the products for which you are responsible.

We know great software engineers come from diverse backgrounds so no single individual may have all the desired skills on day one.
