Principal Architect, Back End, Platform Conversion Team

Every file that is uploaded to Box is touched by our Conversion architecture. We are the biggest service footprint in the company after the web service itself. Our Conversion stack is undergoing a massive overhaul from hardware to the latest ephemeral containers. With that redux, we are updating it to be even more performant, adaptable, and secure. The people that build and maintain this large stack are the Platform Content Conversion Engineering team. And we want you to help us take the experience to a whole new level.
