<h4> <strong>Senior Software Engineer, Developer Experience (REMOTE - Bangalore, India or Palo Alto, CA)</strong> </h4> <p> <strong>About Skyflow:</strong> </p> <p> <span style="font-weight:400;">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.</span> </p> <p> <span style="font-weight:400;">Skyflow is based in Palo Alto California, with offices in Bangalore, India, and team members working from locations all around the world.
