Staff Software Engineer, Core Frameworks

Our rapid growth challenges us to continuously rethink, improve and innovate our Core architecture. Managing billions of files, allowing millions of people to collaborate, and building a platform to support other developers - isn't this an engineer's dream challenge? 
We have a unique opportunity to architect and design the Core services and infrastructure that power Box. We are transitioning the organization to a service oriented architecture and currently designing components like the API gateway, services frameworks, inter service queues, etc. to help build feature services at scale. Services built on the framework should work across various platforms (Scala, Java, Node, PHP). 
The project has enormous impact on the future of Box platform and has a wide scope - all the way from designing a scalable services platform to re-architecting the data models in our code base. We are looking for big thinkers and innovators to take on this problem space and deliver world class solutions. We are a small, passionate team that thinks big and is not afraid of huge, gnarly problems. If these challenges excite you, come join us.
