Reinventing how the world uses business content
Box was founded on a simple, powerful idea: people should be able to access and share their content from anywhere. Since 2005, Box has helped more than 8 million individuals, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies do just that. Our team combines the dynamics of a big family, a collegial atmosphere and throw in smarts, quirkiness and fun for good measure. We like the best and the brightest here, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We laugh, poke fun at ourselves, play a mean game of ping-pong and stay late for the occasional Halo night. We're true believers in the power of the Web and how it connects people to their content, and we get to play a hand in shaping a service millions of people use around the world every day.

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.

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.

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Box.Interview Details
One screener call, invited in for panel interview. Attended panel interview (4 interviewers, one after another) in the HQ office in Los Altos, where I did see that indeed, there is a yellow slide. Very prompt, on-time, cordial, pleasant and presentable people who did seem slightly distracted, and perhaps bored with their projects, thus the discussions were low on energy from my perspective. One person on the panel had already accepted a new job elsewhere. I did not meet the HR recruiter, nor did I speak to her on the phone. I only spoke with a coordinator prior to the interview with the hiring manager.Interview Questions
