Who we are

Privy is built by a talented engineering team from diverse backgrounds - we have degrees in Political Science, Biology, English, Cognitive Psychology, and Mechanical Engineering. We come from Australia, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. We're builders and we want to work with other builders. Many of us produce music, publish art, maintain open-source libraries, write blogs, found businesses, and build products.
