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 Web client. Your goal is easy to understand, but hard to master: bring all of Proton Drive's best features to everyone with access to a browser.

Proton Drive offers a uniquely creative space for any Front-End Engineer: the nature of our product means that the Web client has to do a lot of work to encrypt, validate and decrypt files - work that less-private products would defer to the back-end. As such, you'll have the opportunity to do some of the things usually reserved for back-ends, while also building a world-class front-end.

Our Web client is the oldest and most mature Proton Drive client, as it was the first to be developed. You'll work in a well-established team with a lot of pre-existing technology which will need to be understood and extended.
