Engineering at Dropbox

Dropbox engineers get to the core of challenging technical problems, mixing head and heart to get to experiences that just work. With such a broad mission and massive scale, there are countless opportunities to make an impact.

Andrew Fong on tackling the full stack

For the past two years, Andrew’s been building out the Dropbox site reliability team. The team has grown dramatically — not only in size but in perspective — since he started.

“We’re not fire fighting or reactive,” he says. “We’re looking three, six, nine, twelve months down the road as to how we can improve the infrastructure.”

As the team has grown, Andrew says the ability to make an impact has grown too.

“We’re able to go deep on certain areas and actually work on very fundamental challenges in the infrastructure, like provisioning, inventory management, traffic management.”

That depth of impact depends upon a blameless culture and a well-defined process for escalation if issues do arise. Andrew says he’s especially proud of the way his team has come together as it’s grown.

“They have each other’s backs,” he says.

Jessica Liu on taking the long view

Jessica Liu shipped a complete redesign of Dropbox.com within a few months of joining the company. The overhaul employed new icons and gave the site a lighter look overall.

A recent graduate of Brown University, Jessica studied art alongside computer science. She has an eye for design and was well suited to the task.

Jessica says she came to Dropbox because of its standard for excellence in engineering. She knew it was a place where she could grow.

“The engineers who work here are so smart,” she says. “I just knew that I would become a better engineer.”

But growing a sustainable career depends on maintaining a healthy balance in the present. Jessica’s dedicated to cultivating this balance for herself and for the engineering team as a whole.

As part of a cross-team initiative on developing a healthy, inclusive culture, Jessica interviewed fellow engineers and compiled a list of action items for the team. Many of these revolve around welcoming new hires, establishing constructive frameworks for feedback, and setting examples for a healthy work-life balance.

An interview with supply chain manager Michele Sordal

Michele Sordal joined Dropbox a year ago to build the supply chain team from scratch. Here she shares her career path, her experience balancing family and career, and what she looks for in building her team.

What are you working on lately?

I’m in the supply chain group. When I first came to Dropbox, I was brought on to establish that process and organization. It’s the same thing I did at Facebook as the first person in procurement and vendor management.

How did you decide that you wanted to take on that challenge again, starting a team from scratch?

Because it’s just loads of fun. I’m addicted to it. I’m addicted to hypergrowth — coming in at the ground floor and establishing it. That’s where I shine and where I do best.

How would you describe the Dropbox culture?

When I first walked into the lobby of this building, it felt like home.

    I have been working at Dropbox full-time (Less than a year)


    The perks are breathtaking, and coworkers are generally a great bunch. Good location, great compensation. Great sense of purpose as employee.


    Too heavy on the junior side, needs more senior engineers and leadership. There's a lot of very green employees just out of ivy leagues who think they're hot stuff, when in reality they're just "ok".
