At Proton, we envision an internet where privacy is the default, and we’re building ways to help all people secure their digital lives and take control of their data. 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 40 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, including ProtonCalendar, ProtonDrive, and more to come.
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, and Taipei. We're also considering future potential office locations such as London and Barcelona.
About the team
While the open nature of email is great for interoperability, accessibility and freedom from centralized control, it also creates challenging email delivery problems. Any server in the world can send email to any other email server. Many systems must work together at ProtonMail to mitigate spam and virus attacks, do proper authentication to prevent email spoofing, and finally deliver email to the right place.
You will join a growing mail delivery team to build and operate sophisticated backend systems that send, receive, and filter email. This team contains a mix of senior software engineers and devops/site reliability engineers.
Your work will directly improve the user experience and digital security of millions of people around the world. You should have extensive experience designing and developing scalable and highly-available systems.
