Dropbox is the world's first smart workspace that helps people and teams focus on the work that matters. With more than 600 million registered users across 180 countries, we're on a mission to design a more enlightened way of working. Dropbox is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and has 12 offices around the world.
Our Engineering team is working to simplify the way people work together. They're building a family of products that handle over a billion files a day for people around the world. With our broad mission and massive scale, there are countless opportunities to make an impact.
Dropbox is looking for software engineers to come build the next generation of work collaboration tools. The software engineer role is a generalist role, accepting people with a broad range of expertise with an emphasis in backend and distributed systems work. You can find more specialized engineering roles including mobile, web, and fullstack on our engineering jobs page.
Software engineers work at all levels of the stack to deliver software - everything from syncing exabytes of data, to staying in flow with Dropbox Paper, to handling millions of HTTP requests. Software Engineers are at the heart of everything we do at Dropbox, and in a typical week you'll be expected to develop new features in a multi-functional team of designers, product managers, project managers, and quality assurance engineers. Software engineers are also responsible for the quality of the code and systems they produce, working hand-in-hand with customer experience and quality assurance Dropboxers to ensure that our product continues to serve the needs of our tens of millions of users.
