Keepsafe’s mission is to make privacy and security simple. We believe that everyone should have the same control of privacy in their digital life as they do in their physical life.

We’re working on a family of products to make it easy for people to protect their personal space. And, with over 75 million users on our existing products—we’re just getting started.

Why join us?
  • We started our company just over 6 years ago, after we noticed a gap growing between tech creators and tech users. We decided we wanted to make privacy and security as easy as locking a door. With that goal in mind, we built the photo app that made Keepsafe profitable.

    We’re currently working on a comprehensive suite of products to expand on our mission of simplifying privacy and security, and want to make sure we find the strongest and most dynamic engineers to fill out our lean team.

  • Our company is still very small, but has already achieved $7M in annual recurring revenue, doubling revenue over the last 3 years.

    We are now cash flow positive.

  • Our apps on iOS and Android have over 75 million users and around 10 million that are active monthly.

    This is all powered by our small, close-knit engineering team; where each engineer has the opportunity to make a REAL impact on our products and our users.


Engineering at Keepsafe
Engineering team and processes

We have a distributed Engineering team, with an office in San Francisco, an office in Berlin, and several employees in remote locations. The team management is fairly flat, with most of the engineers reporting to our Director of Engineering in San Francisco, and the Berlin employees reporting to a local Engineering Manager there.

We employ a lightweight Agile process. The teams work in short sprints and release frequently.

Technical Challenges
  • Extending existing our core infrastructure to allow new application development
  • Building on our in-house realtime sync infrastructure
  • Scalability, security, API design and reusability of code
  • Building out an internal data aggregation pipeline
Projects you might work on
  • We are currently working on major additions to one of our apps, and minor improvements to 3 others.

    In the near future, we will be starting on a completely new app, in line with our product goals of making safety and security simple for people.
