A better internet, where privacy is the default, is possible. Building this better internet might seem daunting or even unthinkable, but at Proton, this is what we do every day.

Proton was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Our first product, Proton Mail, is now the world’s largest encrypted email service. Subsequent Proton products, such as Proton VPNProton Calendar, and Proton Drive, give our users full control over how and with whom their data is shared.

Today, Proton makes privacy universally accessible. Journalists from outlets like The Guardian and The New York Times, some of the world’s largest organizations, and people in more than 180 countries have signed up for over 70 million accounts. Our diverse and dynamic team is made up of more than 400 members representing over 40 different nationalities. While we are based in Geneva, Switzerland, we have offices in Zurich, Prague, London, Vilnius, Skopje, Taipei, and many more employees working remotely around the world.

Join one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies to help us solve challenging problems and build new products that will reach hundreds of millions of people. We want to create more than just one of the world’s most impactful tech companies; we want to create a new internet that serves the interests of all people. We need you, your voice, your ideas, and your ambition to make it happen.

Purpose of the role

You will be responsible for designing, building, maintaining and evolving features of the Proton Drive back-end. Your goals are easy to understand, but hard to master: (1) serve every Proton Drive client quickly, efficiently, and correctly; and (2) ensure the stability and correct functioning of the Proton Drive back-end. You are not an SRE, but you often think like one as you design and build the systems that must be rock-solid at the heart of Proton Drive. Proton Drive offers a uniquely creative space for any Back-End Engineer: the nature of our product makes migrations, mitigations and optimizations significantly more nuanced than in other, less-private systems: we can't inspect any of the data customers store on our systems, and that's by design!
