Working at Box is all about... 

 

From a Berkeley Cottage to Now

The idea for Box originated from a research project Aaron Levie worked on while at USC. He shared his concept for a simple content sharing platform with his childhood friend, Dylan Smith, and the two built the Box platform in 2005. Soon after, they moved to a cottage in Berkeley with their first round of funding--Dylan's online poker winnings of $20,000--to pursue their goal: to change the way people worked. Today, Box helps millions of customers worldwide untether from their desks and share content in the cloud. People can now work anywhere, on any device and collaborate across the globe with complete ease and security.

    I have been working at Box full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I haven't regretted joining Box for a second. The company has a fantastic culture, a great product set (which has a leadership position within all of the key analyst reports) and offers really interesting work. The European team is in transition, but there are some brilliant team members and some top new talent joining the Sales, Marketing and CS teams.

    The culture is genuinely supportive and collaborative, both at a regional and global level, with many community groups (MOSAIC, Pride, Box Women's Network) and an ongoing program run by our Chief Fun Officers. Benefits are excellent. I've also seen multiple colleagues be promoted and some excellent international transfer opportunities.

    Cons

    The new strategy isn't for everyone: it requires real drive, passion and belief. But I really believe that it's the right one.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate the strategy globally: we're on the right track!

    Senior Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Box (New York, NY) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The whole process was great: recruiter reached out to me and had an initial conversation with me then the recruitment manager took over and acted like a real partner all throughout the rigorous selection process. Kept calling to check up on me at every step to assess my motivation and see what was on my mind.
    Then when I got the offer it exceeded my expectations and in addition to that, when I accepted I received an amazing bottle of champagne delivered to my house. I was very touched by the gesture and I think it's a great indicator to the kind of company Box is. Can't wait to start!
