Manager, Storage

As the Manager on our Storage SRE team, you and your team will own the systems that store content for Box’s customers. Those systems are the heart of our business and this team makes sure that heart keeps beating every day. Not only are our storage team members are the experts on our custom in-house storage systems, but they are also leading our charge into the public cloud. We have a hybrid++ model where we store content in our datacenters as well as across multiple public clouds.

Why the team needs you

The Storage SRE team is lean. We're a diverse mix of backgrounds and skillsets and each of us makes a big difference every day. We need someone who knows how to run systems in production and who wants to use software to lead them rather than shell prompts. In particular we're looking for a principled leader who can grow, build, and develop the Storage team as our business (and our Storage systems) grow over the coming months and years. You'll work with your team and partner teams to develop and drive a roadmap for Box storage and make our systems better and better for our customers.

Why you need Box

Box is growing fast. Real fast. Every business in the world is looking to modernize the way that they work.

You are the champion for our public cloud strategy -- giving our customers the most reliable, most available, most secure, and most cost-effective on the planet!
