Hello! I’m the hiring manager for this role. Before I get into the usual job information, I want to share two reasons I’m proud to work here.
  1. A single individual can make a big difference. From taking an idea from inception in a Hackathon to a multi-quarter project spanning multiple teams, to piloting a Diversity and Inclusion effort on the team and rolling it across all of Engineering. Countless initiatives with impacts across the entire organization have been thought up, debated, and implemented without red tape.
  2. Even having been through similar sessions at past companies, I found the inclusivity training at Box to be uncommonly poignant and actionable. The people here are genuine in their efforts to welcome everyone and are supported by leadership. And when one of us fails--even accidentally, we call out the marginalizing behavior even if it's uncomfortable to do so.
Okay, here’s the rest:
Box powers how the world works together.
Box is much more than cloud file storage. We’re building features that enable companies to drive complex workflows from within Box, but that all begins with getting the basic building blocks right. We have an opening on a team that's building vital capabilities for the next generation of Box’s product lines: Tasks and Notifications.
The team is responsible for: Tasks, cross-platform push notifications, integration with user-created workflows (think Zapier or IFTTT, but within Box), and more.
We’re already the undisputed leader in enterprise file sync and share, so companies store their files and collaborate using Box. This team is part of an evolution towards moving business processes related to those files inside of Box. It’s all part of our mission to help companies get work done.
As an Engineering Manager on this team, you will...
  • As a technical and inspiring leader, you will work across organizational and team boundaries in order to drive decisions that align with our future architecture, product, and business goals. 
  • Be part of the creative process. Story mapping, design review, meeting with customers and sales, and more
  • You will lead significant technology initiatives from inception to successful deployment, across multiple layers of architecture
  • Collaboration is at the core of our strategy, and we'll look to you to drive effective execution, delivering key business impact, while investing in the growth of your team through mentorship, coaching, and sponsorship

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.

How do I know if I have a disability?
