Sr. Tools Engineer

Things are always moving quickly at Box, from selling internationally to expanding the global footprint of our data centers. We've grown from a 60 person company in 2010 to a global company with more than a thousand employees in 2015. Despite that rapid growth, we haven't lost sight of what makes us successful: our employees & the culture they bring to the office, every day.  Our industry is continuing to expand and so is our market potential.
