Founders Story

After working together for 20 years and successfully building two companies, the seven co-founders launched Backblaze with a vision: to create a business that’s equally fair and good for its customers, partners, employees, investors, and the greater community.

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

Think hard how to make things easy. Take extra time to achieve simplicity, minimize friction, and reduce complexity.

Open Communication

Default to sharing unless there is a strong reason not to. Transparency builds trust and establishes leadership.

Cleverly Unconventional

Refuse to take history or habit to mean something is "right." Consider novel solutions unrestricted by conventional wisdom.
