Company Description

Glimpse Protocol is bringing technological innovation to consumer privacy. We create platforms that respect privacy and empower consumers in the ownership of their data.

Our current focus is privacy preserving digital ads - a needed fix for an industry built on questionable consumer data practices. To deliver this, we are building a cross functional team spanning software engineering, data science, data engineering, dev ops, blockchain, and programmatic advertising all wrapped within a performant distributed system.

Glimpse is backed by ConsenSys, Founders Factory, Guardian Media Group Ventures, Innovate UK, Nesta, and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

Glimpse’s three founders have previously worked closely together delivering exciting projects in the military, intelligence and cyber warfare domains. Our shared background is a real strength but we believe that Glimpse will become stronger with diversity - we’d love to hear from any traditionally underrepresented community.

We’re growing fast - come and help us build!
