About Backblaze

Backblaze originated in a founder’s one-bedroom apartment where five people committed to helping people save their data. Backblaze provides cloud storage and backup that’s astonishingly easy to use and affordable. Our customers use our services so they can pursue dreams like curing cancer (genome mapping is data intensive), archiving the work of some of the greatest artists on the planet (learn more about how Austin City Limits uses B2), or simply sleeping well at night (anyone that’s spilled a cup of coffee on a laptop knows the relief that comes with complete, secure backups). We are entrusted with well over an exabyte of data from customers in more than 175 countries. We exited 2020 growing rapidly, and we've done it all with just $3M in total funding.

We’ve managed to nurture a team oriented culture with amazingly low turnover. Our approach is guided by honesty, transparency, and a commitment to doing the right thing for our customers and coworkers. Our customers are happy, and so are our coworkers: In the most recent “Great Place to Work” survey, 99% of our team rated Backblaze as “a great place to work.” Check out what our employees are saying on Glassdoor!
