Desic Labs is building an app for consumers to create GDPR data requests across various companies; present insights and action items: monitor changes both over time and for changed interpretations; and eventually, let users monetize their own data.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • We are mission based: we are going to put consumers back in control of their own data and create a shift that will revert the productization of people.

  • Ground floor opportunity at a new startup founded and funded by experienced professionals.

  • Engineering opportunities range from clients (desktop and mobile), to web, to our own server software. This is a place to leverage your knowledge, yet learn new things.


Engineering at Desic Labs
Engineering team and processes

While we are used to the typical two week sprint, but this is a ground floor opportunity where the first year will be defined by the few people participating on the team. Founding engineering team gets to decide on the tools, practices, and cadence.

Technical Challenges

We will be the bank for all of a consumer's personal data, which requires respect. We need to minimize the potential blast radius of any exploit. What to anonymize, how to undo that safely, when to use encryption, and where data should reside, are all questions that need to be answered.

Some data may be local to a device, some may sync to an aggregation server, and some may stay in corporate clients' datacenters. Access control and privacy preserving analytics are fundamental. When we add incentivization, it will start to look like a blockchain project, with distributed analysis and federated machine learning.

Projects you might work on
  • Consumer app: fast iteration and experimentation across desktop/mobile/web to determine what platform choices resonate with consumers, and what features users find useful to pay for and/or return to the app for.

  • Distributed database with consumer nodes, enterprise nodes, and central marketplace nodes, all of which will have different access control and analysis engines.

  • Marketplace (future).
