Technical Challenges

We have a deeply technical product but also wildly popular consumer product — Most popular consumer products (e.g. Facebook, Airbnb) are solving technical problems that come with huge scale but the product itself is technically straightforward. Dropbox both has challenging problems of both huge scale and the product itself is technical.

Keeping data secure and synced is critical for our users — Dropbox has to safely store and sync data for hundreds of millions of users across the world. Many of them are businesses who rely on Dropbox for their operations. They can't afford any data loss or comprising the privacy of their users. This is a huge technical challenge.

We built out our own data center — Last year Dropbox undertook a huge migration away from using AWS to building out their own data center using the most advanced technology available. Wire magazine explains why this was such an impressive feat here.
