Role Description

Company Description

Dropbox is a leading global collaboration platform that's transforming the way people work together, from the smallest business to the largest enterprise. With more than 500 million registered users across more than 180 countries, our mission is to design a more enlightened way of working. From our headquarters in San Francisco to eight dedicated Studios and a worldwide team of employees who choose where they work best, our Virtual First approach is leading the way into the future of work.

Team Description

Our Engineering team is working to simplify the way people work together. They’re building a family of products that handle over a billion files a day for people around the world. With our broad mission and massive scale, there are countless opportunities to make an impact.

Role Description

Our strategy starts with our mission: how do we build the right set of products that can help our customers work in a more enlightened way? If the first big problem Dropbox solved was getting your files in the cloud, the new problem we’re solving is helping you organize your life. As we’re evolving the core business from syncing and sharing files, we are looking for Software Engineers to come build the next generation of new products for collaboration and distributed work. Product Engineers thrive working across technologies and codebases, but are also involved in various product development cycle stages. Along the way they help representing users needs through close partnership with product, design, and user research. In this role you will deliver best-in-breed software by building robust systems that power optimized user experiences on marquee projects like Dropbox Paper, Transfer, or Family. As a Product Engineer, you will use data-driven approaches to conduct experiments or iterate features, while ensuring that the software we write will last and scale.

Responsibilities

  1. You will design and build software capable of reaching millions of daily users
  2. You will partner with product managers, designers and analysts to deeply understand the needs of our users and build a product that serves those needs
  3. You will develop and execute against both short and long-term roadmaps, making effective tradeoffs between business impact, user experience, and a high-quality technical foundation
  4. You will improve the team and company – you will be an active participant in our culture (mentorship, interviewing, and new initiatives)
  5. You will support your fellow engineers through feedback, code reviews, and advancement of internal tools and processes

Requirements

  1. BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding (e.g., physics or mathematics), or equivalent technical experience
  2. 2+ years of software engineering and/or work related industry experience
  3. Previous success developing and shipping a large-scale web application with a user-empathetic mindset
  4. Skilled at building user-facing applications and supporting systems and libraries on web and/or desktop using front-end technologies such as JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Angular, HTML5, CSS3
  5. You can handle full-stack projects and are able to build a minimum working product quickly

Dropbox is an equal opportunity employer. We are a welcoming place for everyone, and we do our best to make sure all people feel supported and connected at work. A big part of that effort is our support for members and allies of internal groups like Asians at Dropbox, BlackDropboxers, Latinx, Pridebox (LGBTQ), Vets at Dropbox, Women at Dropbox, ATX Diversity (based in Austin, Texas) and the Dropbox Empowerment Network (based in Dublin, Ireland).
