Box – Why Work For Us?



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.

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, 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, Billing Operations Manager

Here at Box, my coworkers are talented, funny, energetic, intelligent people – and I love to be around them. It makes coming in to work each day a joy. I also get to tackle interesting problems and projects daily, and the chance to develop a career and professional life that I'm really excited about.

Cecilia Haig, Developer Relations Associate

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, 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, Sales Operations Manager

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.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had a two hour skype interview with two different engineers back-to-back. Each asked a specific technical question. The first asked the unival tree question and the second asked the elevator question. I was unprepared so did not perform well and as expected. Therefore I did not make it through.
