Purpose
 
At Box, we believe in building products that delight users and transform how they work. Our desktop products are at the heart of this, providing a native experience for users that makes it seamless to interact with Box content. Box Desktop applications drive the highest engagement with customers and are among the most important in customer retention. We are working to make the full Box cloud - its content, collaboration, and management - available to users with the interactivity and familiarity of their local computer and local applications. Be part of the engineering team that is building the new foundation for Box on the desktop and transforming how people work every day!
 
In this role, your work will reach millions of users and help continue Box's leadership as the web's secure content management and collaboration platform. You'll be working closely with a small group of engineers who strive to build the most comprehensive, cross-platform, enterprise-class solution to sync, stream, and share content. You'll be designing and implementing features to solve challenges around user experience, security, networking, algorithms, file system implementation & optimization, and cross-platform portability. Every day you'll work with our dedicated Product Management team, embedded Quality Engineering team, embedded Build & Release team, or one of our peer engineering teams to imagine and build future desktop experiences for our users.
 
Why the team needs you
 
The Desktop Engine team is responsible the core of Box's next generation desktop client application, Box Drive, for Mac and Windows (read more about Box Drive here: https://blog.box.com/blog/box-drive-how-we-made-all-box-available-desktop/). We need to add a thoughtful and collaborative developer who can help us deliver more of Box's cloud functionality to the desktop and who is committed to continuously improving our overall technical architecture.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

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.
