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 67% 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 UK, 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.


The Microservices Infrastructure team has an enormous impact on the future of Box platform and has a wide scope - all the way from designing a scalable services platform to re-architecting the data models in our code base. We are looking for big thinkers and innovators to take on this problem space and deliver world class solutions. We are a small, passionate team that thinks big and is not afraid of huge, gnarly problems.

Our team is packed with motivated and business-savvy engineers who understand how critical our work is to Box. We are all aligned behind a common goal to make Box a shining example of a modern security-focused SaaS company.

We are a tight-knit team of developers responsible for the foundation of Box's microservice infrastructure and we're looking for experienced Backend Software Engineers who will be the core members of our team in Poland.

Many of the world's largest enterprises rely on Box for managing their content. Our customers impose some pretty unique scaling challenges on the engineering team in general and on infrastructure teams in particular. As Box is migrating the core of its service from a monolithic PHP codebase to Java microservices, the expectations of our infrastructure grow further still.
