Storj Overview


Storj Labs Inc. is pioneering decentralized cloud storage, along with making object storage more secure, resilient, and faster than other leading cloud storage providers. Our mission is to Build the Decentralized Future, and our vision is to be the storage layer for the decentralized internet. We accomplish this goal by building a team equipped and empowered to propel us forward.


As a Solution Architect, you will be a key technical lead in helping define, develop, and manage the evaluation and execution of technical integrations with customers and technology partners.
