About Us

Founded in 2001, Code42 is comprised of 400+ engineering, sales, marketing, design, and support professionals located throughout the world, headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. We’re best known for CrashPlan, a system that manages and protects your digital life with easy-to-use software and high-performance hardware storage.


Leveraging our collective experience, we create extraordinary, elegant solutions for everyday problems. Not satisfied with making solutions that simply work; we demand they look amazing and behave intuitively. Our innovative, open, collaborative environment views all challenges as opportunities, new ideas expected, and the best one should always win.



Best Idea Wins

It seems simple enough. If we are to succeed, then we’d be smart to promote an environment where the best ideas have a chance to live.


Be True & Open

Because trust is built on honesty and openness, we don’t tiptoe around issues when it comes to people’s data. We face them head-on, for better or worse.


No One Owns the Code

Moving ahead as a company requires a collaborative effort, which is why we don’t build self-contained silos at Code42. Primadonnas may apply elsewhere.


Trust Our Customers

Trust is a two-way street. Our customers trust us with their most private data, and we in turn trust that they use our products as intended. No questions asked.


Break the Rules

Some rules need to be broken because the context in which they were created is no longer relevant, and that is when you have an opportunity.


Have Fun

Most folks work more than they play. So if your work life sucks, doesn’t that mean the majority of your life sucks? We like less suck, unless you’re vacuuming.


Code42’s headquarters are located in Minneapolis, MN, with offices in London.
