Yes, but the attack vector would still be the client application as it only sends locally encrypted data to their servers and thus only a backdoor built into the client application can access your data and therefore the security risk from a disgruntled employee is pretty similar whether you store data on their servers or not (that is the point of end-to-end encryption, your data never leaves your devices in a form anybody but you can decode).

If somebody manages to put a backdoor into the client, it doesn’t matter anymore where your data is stored, it is game over.
