Role Description


Our Dropbox Infrastructure Engineering team is passionate about building awesome products at massive scale. We've developed a set of values that enable us to do this. Specifically, we write great software and sweat the details, focus on impact, and create an enduring culture. Building elegant products begins with lots of hacking and iteration to explore the problem space. It culminates in careful attention to edge cases and error handling, polished code, and great tests to ensure that we ship reliable code that never compromises data integrity or security. Every Dropbox software release improves millions of lives, and you'll find a high petabyte-to-engineer ratio here. We're bold when it comes to shipping high-leverage projects, even if they're risky or novel.

In leading one of our infrastructure teams, you'll enable our end-users with highly efficient core services and scaling reliably to meet the needs of the product. You will manage a team of 5-10 engineers and work closely with product managers, QA engineers and other engineering teams to deliver industry leading scale and infrastructure.
