WHY BOX NEEDS YOU
Box is growing fast. Real fast. Every business in the world is looking to modernize the way that they work. As the leader in cloud content management, Box is the only company that can help enterprises transform how people work together. We need to expedite this effort by building highly available and distributed Infrastructure services in a heterogenous environment. That’s where you come in.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
As a member of the Edge Performance Engineering team, you will be directly responsible for the architecture, development, deployment, and maintenance of several of Box’s services and applications, including performance optimization, and designing how to better align and integrate the services with our hybrid hosting strategy (Multi-Vendor Cloud Strategy, Containerization, etc).
The team is looking for a mix of programming and systems oriented skills, and offers opportunities to grow in both software and systems engineering. You will collaborate closely with other engineering teams, using agile methodologies as well as Open Source technologies within the SRE community. As we evolve the infrastructure and move towards a service oriented architecture, it is imperative that we redefine how to think about operationalizing services in the future.
We are a team of highly motivated and driven engineers who are dedicated to Box’s future - to solving tomorrow’s problems today. We understand how critical the scalability and reliability of the infrastructure is to the growth of the company and take that responsibility seriously. We would love to find someone who shares our drive and will help propel us to continue architecting services for a heterogeneous and platform agnostic environment.
