ProtonMail was started by scientists and engineers from CERN in 2013 to make end-to-end encrypted email as easy to use as Gmail. Since then, we have grown to become the world's premier secure email service with over 10 million users and a profitable business model. We are rapidly scaling our talented teams to improve our core email product as well as to build an entire suite of web services that safeguards privacy in the digital age.
While the open nature of email is great for interoperability, accessibility and freedom from centralized control, it also creates challenging spam and abuse problems. For instance, a significant percentage of incoming emails to ProtonMail users are spam, some of which are dangerous phishing attacks. Also, like a free email service open to all, ProtonMail inevitably attracts signups from bad actors who abuse our excellent email delivery and reputation.
You will join a growing abuse-desk team to analyze and mitigate spam and abuse attacks. This will involve working with sophisticated anti-spam and anti-abuse systems, including machine learning solutions.
Your work will directly improve the user experience and digital security of millions of people around the world. No domain knowledge or prior experience is required but you should have a technical background in data analytics, software engineering, or other STEM fields.
What you will do:
- Technical degree such as math, science or engineering
- Excellent English communications
- Experience performing data analysis or coding
- Bonus: experience crafting regular expressions
- Bonus: interest in digital security and Internet technologies
Please send an email to [email protected] explaining why you think you are fit for this role, and please include your English resume as an attachment.
