WHAT IS BOX? 
 
Box is the market leader for Cloud Content Management. Our mission is to power how the world works together. Box is partnering with enterprise organizations to accelerate their digital transformation by creating a single platform for secure content management, collaboration and workflow. We have an amazing opportunity to further establish ourselves as leaders in the space, and we need strong advocates to help us achieve that goal. 
 
Today, Box powers over 100,000 businesses, including 69% of the Fortune 500 who trust Box to manage their content in the cloud. Our Warsaw office is an incredibly exciting addition to our EMEA expansion. We're already in London, France, and Germany, and the new Poland location will act as a global engineering and product development hub alongside our headquarters in Redwood City, California.
 
What is Search at BOX?
 
Box Search powers content discovery for millions of users and hundreds of billions of documents.  The amount of content our customers are storing within Box is growing at an unprecedented rate.  In turn, browsing through a file tree has become increasingly more difficult, leaving Search as the de facto way for knowledge workers to connect with the content they need, to do critical elements of their jobs.  Search not only powers end user experiences across mobile, desktop, and web but also the applications built by our customers via the Search API.  More internal and external features are being built on top of the Search backend continuously and it is now a critical portion of user facing products and customer built applications, which necessitates the need for a Search Platform.
 
The Search Platform is a higher order abstraction of the core Search offering that enables internal teams to build user facing products that leverage Search capabilities that either already exist or must be created to power new features.  Come help us build the foundation of how we approach the Search Platform solution within Box as well as shape the direction of how Search capabilities are applied across multiple Box products.  You will be combining existing Search infrastructure functionality as well as brand new services to deliver a scalable, and easy to use Search Platform. Your passion for building highly scalable distributed systems and cutting edge information retrieval techniques will be the key to the success of Search and enabling the millions of people who use Box on a day to day basis to do their best work.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
