CVKey project is building a privacy-first, open source suite of applications to help communities responsibly reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic. We all want to feel confident going outside again. Without compromising privacy. This is our goal.

If you can help us by advising, piloting, or joining us, you're in the right place.

Open Roles

Apply below

Privacy/Security Implementation Engineer

Help us implement cutting edge privacy/security technologies working closely with privacy and security experts. You can find out more about our initial privacy approach here.

Experience: Ideally you’d have 5 years or more of experience working on implementing privacy architectures (e.g. public key infrastructure, identity and access management) in the cloud and on mobile.

Duration: 3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above.

Frontend/UX Engineer

Building a community health application that needs to surface the complex terrain of information about health and community expectations in a simple, easy to understand way is an extremely challenging problem. Come help us solve it!

Experience: Ideally you really love to get the user experience of an application right. Looking for people with at least 5 years of UX/Frontend experience. Experience with UX work on mobile appreciated.

Duration: 3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above.

DevOps/SRE/Release Engineer

Ensuring that we can deploy software efficiently with high reliability is going to be key to delivering on the value proposition of SRE. This role is loosely defined -- deliberately so -- but if you’re passionate about helping marry great code and great operational capabilities, then this might be the role for you. 

Experience:
Experience in developer operations, deployment, life cycle management, site reliability of 5 years or more. 

Duration:
3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above.

Full Stack/Generalist Engineer

Have experience touching lots of different parts of the stack, from mobile, to cloud, to ETL, to a little bit of ML when required? Love to work on whatever problem most requires addressing with no regard for where in the software stack this is happening? We need you on CVKey to help as we adapt to an extremely rapidly-changing environment. 

Experience: 8 years of general software engineering experience in a range of disciplines. Willingness and eagerness to learn about new domains like cryptography, or mobile development as the project requires. 

Duration: 3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above.

Privacy aware data science/ML specialist

CVKey has put privacy first in its design and by choice this has meant we have prioritized privacy over the community benefits that could be used in the fight against COVID. But are there ways to do privacy-aware analytics and insights on the data that crosses CVKey’s path? Can we combine techniques like k-anonymity, differential privacy, and federated learning to share useful analytics and insights without compromising privacy? 

Experience: 5 years of data science/ml experience. Involvement in privacy aware DS/ML. Willingness to get your hands dirty and instrument the application -- this is for someone who loves both Typescript and Python (or R). 

Duration: 3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above. 

Open source liaison/advocate

CVKey is planning to release its source under an open source license (current plan of record is Apache 2.0). Help us take the systems we have already built on an open stack (Typescript, React Native, Python, Postgres, etc) and help build a community around them. You’ll like to get your hands dirty with pull requests and git branches. 

Experience: 5 years or more working on helping teams bring their projects to open source and build healthy communities around them. 

Duration: 3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above. 

Non-Engineering Roles

We have an accomplished team of volunteers across product management, partnerships, business development, operations, legal, marketing, design, and communications and we would love for you to join us if you have experience in any of these functions.

Duration:
3 month volunteer role at 20 hours/week or above.
