Pyte exists for one reason only: to allow the efficient flow of information while fully preserving the privacy of data owners and the confidentiality of enterprise data.
Today, there is an unnecessary friction between data utility and data privacy. Pyte is building a full stack of technologies that allow enterprises to fully benefit from their data and collaborate seamlessly with their partners without disclosing their data to any other entity including Pyte.
We believe the future of compute should be built with privacy and security at the center, not as an aftermath. Our dream is to create new possibilities, Imagine a world where individuals can safely contribute their data for advancement without the fear of data leakage.
Join Pyte and build the future of compute with us!
Build tech that customers love
Champion great ideas
Win and lose as a team
Communicate openly and honestly
Be fearless in your drive for excellence
