Job Description

With a passion for combining several of sources of data with our team of talents to design and build HAT -

For a technical overview on the tech suite, check out the developers portal-

The HAT is a technology that can privately store anyone’s personal information in a container that only they can control and access. Having a container like this gives everyone the freedom and power to exchange as much or as little of their digital data as they like with Internet services and online organizations. Each HAT is a secure and private data account, and the personal property of their owner.

The technology landscape is changing, as all of us come to realize the value of our online information. What are the unique modern services that can only be built with horizontal sets of rich personal data? How can the individual consumer take advantage of those services without completely giving up their privacy?

If you are interested in contributing to a privacy-preserving digital economy, the HAT wants to talk to you. We are looking for hackers, builders, founders, and visionaries who want to move their applications, technology, and user base to safety, and we have funding, customer acquisition, and engineering support to help them do it. Join us.

You will be:

- Joining an exciting ecosystem on personal data economy working with many like-minded people
- Working with world class research team on cutting edge ideas
- Contributing to the scaling of a fast-growing ecosystem

You must have extensive experience in full-stack development, in particular with

- Scala
- Relational databases, preferably PostgreSQL
- The Play Framework and Akka
- Linux system management and administration
- AWS services: ECS, RDS and CloudFormation as a minimum
- Understanding of container-based application deployment and management, specifically Docker

Useful skills to have:

- Demonstrated experience in building horizontally scalable systems
- Understanding of technology landscape, architectures, trends, emerging technologies, and the full development life cycle.
- Infrastructure as Code with other tools and other cloud providers

Data Analytics skills will be a bonus to have!

What We're Building

We aim to give all individuals their own HATs: a personal data store owned by individuals themselves to allow them to collect, organise, use and exchange personal data securely and with ease-of-use. Individuals can use and re-use their data to fill in forms, post on social media, exchange their personal data for quotations and personalised offers. They should be free to choose their own trusted HAT provider, all of whom have been certified by the HAT Community Foundation.

We created the Rumpel® HAT dashboard to show how users can organise, control and share their data easily. They can also buy services to analyse and use their own data privately. We help organisations share the data they hold of their customers back to their customers' HATs (through universal data plugs) and earn the trust of their customers. Finally, we built the private HAT2HAT technology where private communications between HATs would not need to expose the data to third parties (coming soon).
