Usercentrics is a global leader in the field of consent management platforms (CMP). We follow our company vision to build a world where user privacy enables a thriving digital ecosystem. Our mission is to provide privacy solutions that empower organizations to embrace data privacy while building trust with their users through freedom of choice. With our product, businesses can collect, manage and document user consents on websites and apps, and achieve full compliance in accordance with global privacy regulations while facilitating high consent rates and building trust with their customers.

We’re growing rapidly on a global scale riding the wave of privacy-led marketing, data compliance awareness and regulations. On top of growing double digits Usercentrics is profitable and expanding its team in our Lisbon, Munich and Prague offices.

To fuel this growth and build our innovation capability in the mid-term, Usercentrics has the ambition to build and boost its incubation team.
