The Backblaze Storage Cloud provides a foundation for businesses, developers, IT professionals, and individuals to build applications, host content, manage media, back up and archive data, and more. With over two billion gigabytes of data storage under management, the company currently works with more than 500,000 customers in over 175 countries. Founded in 2007, Backblaze scaled with less than $3 million in outside funding until 2021, when it made an initial public offering on the Nasdaq under the ticker BLZE.

From day one, the Backblaze founders brought our values
to life, which has shaped the company and our staff.

Fair & Good

Be good. Trust is paramount. Build a good product. Charge fairly. Be open, honest, and accepting with customers and each other.

Sustainable Business

Build for long-term success. Be rationally frugal. Invest responsibly. Keep profitability in mind, and build at a sustainable pace.

Focus on Easy

Cleverly Unconventional
