    High impact projects affecting millions of users. The technical challenges are immense, and there are many interesting product problems to tackle as well.


    Dropbox can be a chaotic place to work. You have to be able to work with others and manage your time well in order to get anything done.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dropbox (San Francisco, CA).


    Applied online. Heard from recruiter the same week. Had initial phone screen with them, then spoke to someone on the team for 30 minutes. Pretty standard phone interview, nothing too out of the ordinary and seemed like a good fit. Followed up with recruiter after though and no response. Felt like I had been ghosted, considering it seemed fine before.
