Purpose
Box is building a modern micro service-based software stack to help our customers manage billions of files, collaborate with millions of people, and build custom solutions on top. We are a world-scale company that is growing rapidly.
Our group is building frameworks and tooling, based on Node.js, that magnifies and accelerates the ability of Box's developers to deliver excellent features to our customers.
If you like building tools and frameworks (e.g. api subsystems, build utilities, logging systems, database access patterns, test frameworks, and so forth), and you like magnifying your impact across an organization, this is a phenomenal opportunity. We're early in this journey, so your ability to impact Box's future is huge, with interesting and gnarly problems to be untangled.
 
Why the team needs you
The Node.js ecosystem continue to evolve at a rate unseen on any other software platform. We need people who can embrace this environment and help us turn it into enterprise-grade, world-scale software fundamentals. 
 
Why Box needs you
The frameworks teams are embarking on the next wave of technology to help teams move their code out of monoliths and build dozens of new greenfield features. Our vision of what we can do for Box developers is huge, and we need people like you to help deliver on that vision. 
 
Why you need Box
The Microservice Infrastructure team is defining the frameworks, technologies and patterns that the whole engineering organization will use for years ahead. Box is growing and uniquely positioned to be the leader in Cloud Content Management for enterprises, yet is still small enough for you to collaborate with all of your users. The opportunities to demonstrate your skills to deliver empowering frameworks and help define engineering future is unmatched. 
 
Who you are
You have experience working in a fast paced and collaborative environment.
  • You enjoy putting your head down and delivering rock-solid features for other developers to use
  • You can work with internal developers to understand their needs and deliver features that meet those needs
  • You can evangelize good code and solid engineering practices
  • You can collaborate with senior members of the team to define our microservice architecture

  • You have a demonstrated expertise in designing and building world-class software 
  • You have a strong knowledge of software design principles

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. 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.
