DevOps Engineer

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

We want to give our users the best services and aim to build some more such as Qwant Maps, Qwant Mail, Qwant Music and Qwant Junior.

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, we are looking for new talents to help us overcome our upcoming challenges in Europe.

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.
