Here's What It's Really Like to Work at Dropbox
Dropbox began as a file storage and collaboration solution. Now, the company is used by hundreds of millions of companies and individuals. But according to Giancarlo Lionetti, the digital demand generation head, it’s just getting started.
“We’re starting to build a story—not just around storage but also around productivity—and that’s expressed in our products and features,” he says.
That means the team is getting the opportunity to work on some awesome projects. Kate Taylor, who leads the sales development team, worked with universities during the NCAA March Madness tournament to explore how Dropbox could be used to distribute rosters or share team game plans.
“We want people who are passionate—because all of us are,” Taylor says. “We recognize people who work hard.”
And at Dropbox, everything is done with passion. For example, the company could offer its employees a state-of-the-art kitchen and stop there—nothing wrong with that! But Dropboxers are treated to three delicious meals a day, five days a week, prepared by a chef that takes innovation as seriously as they do. (There’s even a midday scone and tea cart. Because who doesn’t want a midday scone?)
Dropbox has several lounge areas, but its offices also have a music room—which gives team members a chance to jam whenever they need a break. There’s also an awesome on-site gym.
But no matter how many perks Dropbox boasts or impressive milestones it hits, the core values of the company are unchanging.
“While the company has grown, there are fundamental things that remain true to our culture—things like being happy, scrappy, and getting things done,” strategic finance associate Angela Chiang explains.
