Our mission is to defend human rights and democracy through building software that is essential for digital freedom and privacy protection for all Internet users.
ProtonMail was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). And since its inception, the company has grown at a fast pace and today has over 26 million users. Our principal product, ProtonMail, is the world’s largest secure email service. Our second product, ProtonVPN, is one of the world’s most popular VPN services. Our vision is to build an Internet platform for the protection of digital rights, and we are also developing additional products such as ProtonCalendar, ProtonDrive, and much more.
Proton users include leaders of the Hong Kong protest movement, New York Times journalists, some of the world’s largest corporations, and millions of ordinary citizens from over 180 countries. Our team is diverse and dynamic, representing over 30 different nationalities, with offices in Geneva, Zurich, Prague, Vilnius, Skopje, San Francisco, and Taipei.
What you will do:
At ProtonMail, our number one priority is protecting our users’ privacy by providing end-to-end encrypted email communication. Our main desktop application, ProtonMail Bridge, runs in the background on your computer. The Bridge offers local SMTP and IMAP servers for your email client so that you can seamlessly send and receive encrypted emails.
Our desktop developer will get to work on all different aspects of the Bridge, including the UX, GUI, client-API communication, MIME parsing, and optimizing the performance of local servers.
