Purpose
 
The Platform organization at Box enables developers within and outside of Box to build secure, intelligent, and scalable applications on top of content. Using the APIs, SDKs, and integrations we build, developers can focus on creating great experiences that leverage the same technology that powers Box, including file viewing, security, collaboration, and much more. We currently have open roles on the Preview team.
 
Box Preview allows users to securely view their documents and media files on desktop and mobile web without leaving the Box web application and is the most used product feature at Box, serving over 45 million previews a week. Preview is built as a JavaScript library on top of the Box API and powers content viewing in the Box web experience and in various platform offerings like Box Elements. Our source code is public—come see our work at https://github.com/box/box-content-preview and https://github.com/box/box-ui-elements!

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?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
