About Optery

Optery is a fast-growing venture backed consumer data privacy company building opt out software that removes people’s private information from data brokers. Our mission is to put consumers in control of their personal data, and we have a vision for a safer world through digital privacy.

Our opt out software prevents identity theft and fraud, reduces the surface area of attack for phishing attempts and spam, and prevents people’s private information from showing up in Google search results.

Anyone can create an account for free to receive a personalized Exposure Report summarizing where their information is posted online and being openly sold by data brokers. We cover 160+ data brokers and typically find 50+ sites posting and selling the private information of each individual that creates an account.

Opt out software is a nascent category with enormous potential to make the world a safer place through data privacy, and re-define how the $300 billion dollar market for consumer data works for consumers.

We are backed by Y Combinator and other world-class investors. Our team members come from companies such as Accenture, BlueKai, Cleanly, Gigya, Lusha, and Oracle.

The Opportunity

We’re currently a small team of three co-founders (1 business, and 2 engineers), and ~10 contractors spanning design, dev ops, engineering, and customer operations, but we’re planning to double the size of the team over the next few months, primarily in the areas of engineering, marketing, and product management. We’re looking for high-impact individuals that thrive in fast-moving startup environments to join the core team full time.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to be a part of a company as it’s going through the Y Combinator startup accelerator, as we’re about to start YC’s Winter 2022 batch.

We’re a mission driven company empowering consumers to act on their data privacy rights and looking for extraordinary team members to join our mission championing data privacy for consumers.
