Staff Cloud Engineer, Platform Infrastructure

The Platform Infrastructure team builds and runs software and services that provide leverage for our entire Engineering team. 
By abstracting away the low-level details of working with infrastructure, we allow the rest of Engineering to focus on delivering great experiences to Box's customers. Our systems are currently in the midst of transitioning from statically-defined models to dynamic and ephemeral ones, bringing new challenges that require new approaches and ways of reasoning how we manage infrastructure. This shift requires us to develop novel approaches in order to tackle many looming challenges. Come help us solve them for Box!
Why the team needs you
The team is a diverse group of engineers who have a mix of a software development background along with experience running systems in production. As we move towards a service oriented architecture, it is imperative that we operationalize services by developing software that help engineers use Box's infrastructure easily and repeatedly. We will look to you to drive the design and implementation of hybrid-private/public cloud automation solutions at scale without sacrificing stability, quality, velocity or code health.
