Our cloud storage service is S3 compatible, meaning that what happens behind the scenes has to be translated into an established standard. The power of simplicity meets the power of the Swarm.

As member of the Storage team, you will help to design, develop and maintain performant and scalable products used by our business customers; you'll deep dive into challenging and exciting brainstorming and pair-programming sessions with your teammates and, most importantly, you'll be part of the future of the cloud.
