Box is growing rapidly, and in order to reach every customer in the world, it’s critical for us to build a best in class Service Engineering function to efficiently scale Box across a robust Hybrid Cloud infrastructure.
As a Sr Staff Cloud Operations Engineer, you will be responsible for ensuring efficient usage of multiple major Public Cloud providers, in conjunction with our Private Clouds across multiple datacenters.
