“Best Idea Wins”

That sounds simple, but it says a lot.

First of all, we have a kickball team. A really, really bad kickball team. But we don’t care, because having fun with your coworkers both at and outside of work is a good idea, so we do it. See?

We’re not your average tech start-up. We’re not here for the quick sell, the stock buyout or super-merger. Sure, everyone here gets a paycheck, but we’re building something awesome. Not just a company; a community. Not just a product; a solution. But we don’t even stop there: not satisfied with making solutions that merely work, we demand they look amazing and behave intuitively.

We are a diverse group of engineering, sales, marketing, design and support professionals headquartered on the historic riverfront of NE Minneapolis. We’re best known for CrashPlan, a cutting-edge technology solution that protects and manages the data of hundreds of thousands of individuals and more than 5,000 companies. Twitter, Nike and Harvard University are just a few of the global brands that entrust petabytes of critical data with us. If that sounds like success you want to be a part of, join us, and write the future.

The ultimate backup solution for your home or business.

Files are automatically compressed, encrypted, and transmitted to your designated backup destinations. Easily back up your laptop to a desktop, the office server off-site, or a remote employee’s laptop to HQ.

By using your own backup destinations you avoid monthly fees, enjoy greater security, and can recover from data loss much faster. Don’t have a destination? Use the built-in destination CrashPlan Central for a small monthly fee.

CrashPlan runs on Mac, Windows, Linux, and now VMWare - our enterprise virtual appliance for business, at no additional cost.
