Backend Engineer
python security rust backend javascript machine learning May 10


The future will be distributed. This is important because the centralized powers of today extract our data and sell it to the highest bidder, to our detriment. We can fix that. Federated protocols for messaging, microblogging, as well as distributed network architectures for payments, identity and organization are well underway. We are missing a consumer product that enables users to move away from data repositories centralized in the hands of big tech so they can safely and privately interact with digital technology. We need a new personal computing platform that enables this. And we need your help to build that platform.

Our organization is a values driven cooperative that prioritizes people and our planet over profit. We aim to have a global and positive impact on people’s lives by creating technology that works for people, instead of trying to extract data or money from them. We value open and open source software We look for strong values-driven people who share our vision. We look forward to telling you more about our vision, our values and what we are building.


  • *Nix experience
  • CI/CD development
  • Ability to independently architect an application
  • Proficiency in multiple programming languages (e.g. javascript, python, C)
  • Ability to learn a new language quickly (e.g. rust)
  • Community participation and management
  • Security minded (ability to architect for security)
  • Analytic communication skills
  • [Optional] Ability to work remote
  • [Optional] Machine learning affinity


We are looking for a fun and skilled full-time backend engineer to join our diverse and distributed team. We are bound by our common vision and strong values. You will help our team to design and develop the backend for our privacy-by-design data platform. We are looking at using a graph database in combination with security focussed language (e.g. rust) and possibly modules written in other languages (e.g. python, swift). You will join an existing organization of machine learning and distributed technology (e.g. blockchain) researchers. We are just transitioning from research to productizing our solution and look forward to working closely with you to see our common vision come alive. 


We are strongly values driven. We believe that this provides the structure to scale our organization, innovate our technology and attract top talent as we strive to change the world towards a better future. These values apply to how we work and the philosophy of the solutions we create. 

What we offer

As an early organization we offer a base salary with a large stake in the future upside of our effort. Our leadership has successfully started and sold previous startups. We offer a creative, highly participatory environment without the classical top-down hierarchy. We value that each candidate brings their own unique mix of skills and experience. 

We have a preference to hire in Amsterdam or to offer relocation to Amsterdam. We believe your life outside your professional commitments should be enjoyed, and time to rejuvenate is critical to thriving: we offer 5 weeks paid holiday time.
