We are so honored that Dropboxers have helped us earn a No. 1 ranking on Glassdoor's Top U.S. companies for Work/Life Balance in 2022 list. 🥳 Thank you to our leadership for fostering greater productivity by enabling more diversity in working styles. “As much of the world has moved to remote work in the last two years, we saw Virtual First as an opportunity to truly live out our mission of designing a more enlightened way of working. By being a distributed workforce ourselves, we’re better able to build products that cater to distributed teams, as we rely so heavily on them in our everyday work." - Dropbox Chief People Officer, Melanie Rosenwasser

Say hi to Susanne K., director of software engineering based in San Francisco. "I’m a mentor in our DEI sponsorship program for women and people from underrepresented groups. This is a fantastic program that helps people write self-reviews, and helps managers write the best descriptions of their team members’ work. This program allows every employee to get the best representation possible during performance reviews and promotion cycles. For women and minorities, sometimes it’s hard getting this kind of support. This program helps underrepresented talent learn to represent themselves well, and to be proud of their work. I want to continue doing this forever!" We asked Dropboxers, "What kind of impact do you want to make in the world?" See what others had to say.

Virtual First is the real deal. It's way more than just "working remote" though. With this model, Dropbox established Core Collaboration Hours - which are 4hr blocks reserved for meetings, outside of

Diversity Programs & Initiatives

Our differences in background, identity, and experience make us stronger together.

Diversity of style, thought, opinion, and background make us more powerful than the sum of our parts.

    60 min technical interview. Went right into technical question to give time. Overall I would say it was a good experience, though I think I could have done better in the interview.
