Who are We?

We want to change the world, and we’ve already done it once. SpiderOak has been building encrypted software since before the first iPhone was released.

SpiderOak is committed to building secure and reliable software that protects our customers’ data. Our approach is fundamentally different from most mainstream security companies. Instead of adding layers of security on top of an insecure system, we build software that is inherently secure.

SpiderOak builds need-to-know technology that supports customers working in hostile environments. Traditional systems trust IT infrastructure to maintain the whole security system, even though the news is rife with evidence that this model does not work. Our software combines end to end encryption with a distributed ledger (aka Blockchain) technology to offer best-in-class security with no backdoors.

Who We Need

The Dev Ops Engineer at SpiderOak is responsible for managing and improving the company's IT infrastructure and deployment processes. This role involves working closely with the development and operations teams to ensure efficient and reliable system performance.

  • Analyze and allocate requirements to system architecture components and oversee the development, testing, and validation of systems and services.
  • Coordinate the integration of systems and services and oversee deployments.
  • Occasionally assist with onboarding of new employees.
  • May work on-call, if needed.
