Sr. Solutions Engineer (US-Remote)



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Thursday, April 20, 2023
Transcend believes everyone should be in control of their personal information. We’re pioneering Data Privacy Infrastructure—a powerful technology that lets individuals reclaim control of their data and ensures companies can easily comply with global data privacy laws.
Our platform enables companies like Robinhood, Brex, and Clubhouse to provide users with control over their information.
From uncovering new data systems and schema, to capturing and enforcing user opt-outs, to globally deleting and exporting a person's data across your stack, Transcend is built to scale every privacy workflow to complete automation. In fact, each month, Transcend executes millions of global user deletions and governs billions of tracking events across thousands of data systems.
We allow these users to request, identify, and delete their personal information from a growing suite of integrated companies: from Salesforce to Slack, Facebook, Zendesk, Intercom, Databases, and beyond.
Please note that we are a remote-first company, and ALL our positions are remote.
This position is for US only.
The Sr. Solutions Engineer at Transcend works directly with customers to design data solutions and assist in implementing them. Our customers rely on Transcend to build, execute and manage compliant privacy programs across their tech stack.

As a Sr. Solutions Engineer, you’ll have a high degree of autonomy and will work with minimal supervision to own end-to-end execution of customer projects. No two days are the same for Sr. Solutions Engineer. One day you may talk architecture with customer engineering teams, facilitate devops & security feature implementations, or assist customers in integrating large datasets. Other days you may assist in answering technical questions, establishing strategy or discussing program objectives with customer’s leadership teams.
Transcend is a fast-paced and dynamic company. We are always evolving to meet customers needs. You’ll be joining a small but growing Technical CX team within the established Engineering org.

  • Triage customer issues & integrations errors, help monitor customer support channels, and contribute to timely issue resolution initiatives.
