Big Data Hadoop Administrator

Born from an audacious challenge, Qwant is the first search engine to develop a genuine alternative on the European online search market.

What makes us unique is that we don’t track our users, we know nothing about each of them, and still, we aim to help them find what they are looking for on the Internet.

Ambitious, isn’t it?

Today, after a successful fundraising, we are looking for new talents to help us make the Web.

If you want your work to actually mean something and help millions of users, if you think that privacy matters even when you have “nothing to hide”, if you like to be challenged and you are not afraid of failure, then we might have a few things in common.
