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.

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.

Box has been insanely flexible about working remotely--as long as you're producing good work and have a positive, proactive attitude, you'll have room to work where you're most comfortable.
Box recently brought in a new Director of Design who is really on-point.
This is a thing of the past, but previously brand and product design were disconnected and it showed.
It feels like there's a lot of turnover--maybe there is and maybe there isn't, but that's how it feels.
Getting an Interview

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Box (Los Altos, CA).
The first round is a video interview. They ask you 5 pre-recorded questions and you have 30 seconds to think about it. Then they give you 1 minute and 30 seconds to answer it. All 5 of the questions are below. I have yet to make it to the second round but am waiting to hear back. I know the second round is a phone interview and then if you pass that, you will go on campus to do in person interview with the hiring manager/rest of the team.
