Purpose
As a member of the NRE Infrastructure team, you will be responsible for the reliability of Box's internal infrastructure services and applications as well as optimizing and architecting such services to align with our hybrid hosting strategy (Multi-Vendor Cloud Strategy, Containerization, etc).

As such, this team requires a unique mix of development and systems oriented skills, and offers opportunities to grow in both software and systems engineering. You will collaborate closely with other engineering teams by utilizing agile methodologies as well as open-source technologies within the SRE community.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
