Staff Software Engineer, Backend - Content
Our team's mission is to build the world's fastest, most secure and scaleable, collaborative file system. We own the Box File System - the very heart of our product, and the foundation of our platform. Billions of files, hundreds of millions of folders, tens of millions of users and all the ways in which they connect.
