Engineering at Transcend
Engineering team and processes

A vast majority of Transcend employees are engineers. Our team is still small but growing fast, so everybody has meaningful input on feature development and architecture. We do daily standups, weekly design reviews, and iteration planning every other week.

Technical Challenges

We build a stateless encryption gateway with zero storage, allowing our customers to end-to-end encrypt user data while processing a user's data access request.

We push the limits of modern browsers by performing cryptography and streaming operations client-side. This wasn't really possible before, so we built and open sourced the most comprehensive streaming toolkit for downloading, decrypting, and zipping files in browsers.

Projects you might work on
  • You could work on infrastructure projects that find and track personal data flows through distributed data systems.

  • You could design and build the modern replacement for privacy policies (which are terrible UX).

  • You could splunk through databases, unstructured text, tools, logs, and more to discover where people's data is getting put by companies!

Working at Transcend

A “day in the life” at Transcend is admittedly in a state of change. Transcend moved into its own office in January and is hiring fast. The company culture continues to form, and our early team will play a big part in influencing it. That said, some things have crystallized: we’re strongly mission-driven, serious about the outcome of our product, and we have built a team based on transparency and trust.

Mike is the CTO and co-founder here at Transcend. Currently he is focused on scaling out the engineering efforts while keeping visibility between teams as high as it has been in the early days.

Salome (Head of Operations): the Operations team at Transcend oversees key business operations functions such as HR, Accounting, and Recruitment. The team uses both quantitative and qualitative data to help ensure Transcend can scale.
