The futureis diverse – Secomba lives quality through diversity

At Boxcryptor, we strive to build the best encryption software you can think of. We achieve this by building on a diversified team, ever since the company was founded.

On this page we will show you, how we deal with building a diverse team and what actions we take to achieve this goal.
