About Rewind

We believe that business owners should be focused on growing and delighting customers; that the data that drives your business should be free to move, is protected from disaster, and will always be secure from wrongdoers.

Rewind is a service that protects the data that is driving your business, from a simple side hustle to a successful venture. Our focus is on backing up data that lives in the cloud – specifically in apps like Shopify, BigCommerce, and QuickBooks Online.

We invite you to read our startup story to learn where we came from and where we’re going. For a more technical view, check out our Behind the App feature on the BigCommerce Developers Blog.

We’re working hard to build a diverse team and become one of the top employers in Ottawa, Canada. We care about honesty, we believe in learning from our mistakes, and we support each other as we grow.

If that sounds good to you, check out job openings at Rewind!
