Build the future of data. Join the Snowflake team.

The Data Privacy team is responsible for integrating privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) like Differential Privacy, Anonymization, and Synthetic Data Generation into Snowflake.

You’ll join a talented, collaborative team of engineers with a track record of bringing  privacy-enhancing technologies from theory to practice. You will engage deeply with the latest research, and work closely with your colleagues to apply it to unlock the promise of the Data Cloud. You will be joining early in our journey, and you will have a real opportunity to impact and shape the future of privacy-enhancing technologies and analytics at Snowflake.
