Box – Why Work For Us?

Ask any Boxer: Working here is far more than a job. From Sales to Engineering, your day is filled with intriguing projects and puzzles paired with a great balance of teamwork and individual latitude. And while Box is big – 92% of Fortune 500s rely on us – Box is small, too: a fast-paced start-up where you make an immediate impact.

Bottom line: For an exciting career with a vibrant culture, you can’t beat Box.

Working at Box gives me the chance to actively apply all the computer science knowledge I gained as an undergrad by making a cutting-edge product that people love, with a team of engineers who love building it. Plus, I get to create something that absolutely everyone finds useful – not only my family and friends, but also every business and organization on the planet.

Ryan Luecke, Senior Software Engineer

When I started at Box after college, I wasn't quite sure exactly what I wanted out of my first 'real' work experience – but I did know that I wanted to contribute to something innovative and learn as much as possible. Within two years, I was able to transition to a management role, thanks to the mentorship and support that's available here.

Kathleen Lim, Senior Manager Revenue Operations 

 

Working at Box has made my transition from student to college grad extremely easy. I've learned a ton from my amazing fellow engineers, and worked on fun and challenging projects that are actually significant – you'll never feel like you're doing any 'busy work' here. And I always know that my input is truly heard and recognized.

Samantha Paras, Senior Software Engineer

After graduating, I knew I wanted to join an exciting company that would offer me opportunities for professional growth – if I was willing to work for them. I joined Box as a Sales Associate, but quickly moved into Sales Operations, where I've had the chance to tackle a wide range of projects, learn important business skills and build a team of all-stars.

Kyle Wulff, Senior Manager, Enterprise Systems

After graduating from Duke, I was looking for a fast-paced and exciting place to work that would give me the opportunity to make a large impact. It turned out to be Box: Within a year of joining, I became a back-end engineering manager, and get to work with some of brightest – and most fun – people in the Valley.

Tomas Barreto, Senior Director Software Development

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Box.

    Interview

    Very engaging and fun interview process. They wanted to get to the know the individual as much as your work history. They did an excellent job of exposing interview candidates to lots of different people in different roles to get a sense of how they would mesh with their coworkers.
