Job position

Job description
At Dropbox, we’re building the home for people’s most important stuff—their photos, docs, and other treasured information. Our small team of engineers builds the thousands of complex parts that seamlessly handle over a billion files a day for hundreds of millions of users, while delivering a product that's easy enough for your grandparents to use. While we've built a great foundation, we've only just begun.

Our Engineering team is passionate about building awesome products at massive scale. We've developed a set of values that enable us to do this. Specifically, we write great software and sweat the details, relentlessly focus on impact, and create an enduring culture. Creating elegant products begins with lots of hacking and iteration to explore the problem space. It culminates in careful attention to edge cases and error handling, polished code, and great tests to ensure that we ship reliable code that never compromises data integrity or security. Every Dropbox software release improves millions of lives, and you'll find a high petabyte-to-engineer ratio here. We're aggressive about shipping high-leverage projects, even if they're risky or novel. We care deeply about collaboration, feedback, and iteration. Trust and respect are deeply rooted in our engineering culture.

At the heart of Dropbox lies the largest networked filesystem in history. We routinely tackle audacious challenges, often against competitors who have 10-50x our resources. On top of this foundation, we're creating products that enable people to do amazing things with their stuff across all their devices.

We're building infrastructure to manage metadata for hundreds of billions of files, hundreds of petabytes of user data, and millions of concurrent connections.
The Dropbox Platform is the fabric connecting over 100 thousand of the world's apps, devices, and services. Our team is redefining "sync" for a mobile era. (See the inaugural DBX conference for more.)
We relentlessly measure and optimize, and we're building one of industry's most advanced analytics platforms to derive meaning from vast amounts of data.
People store and share billions of memories on Dropbox, and we love making these experiences delightful, from our mobile photo uploaders and web albums to a host of exciting features that will launch over the next few months.
