  • You will design the system and processes that Dropbox engineers use to deploy their software into production
  • You will build an auto-remediation system to automatically resolve production incidents before passing them to on-call engineers
Requirements
  • You have a desire to take Dropbox even further. If these large-scale projects resonate, we'd love to learn more about you and find out if we can work together
  • You want to learn and grow with the company. We want people who know that one size does not fit all. You should bring your skills and expertise to invent unusual solutions for the problems that Dropbox is facing
