Product Engineer

Position Purpose

At Dropbox, we’re building a home for people’s lives — their photos, documents, and other treasured information. Our products are simple enough for anyone to use, but our small team of engineers must deliver thousands of complex parts that seamlessly handle over a billion files a day for over 200 million users. We've built a great foundation, but we're just getting started.

Our success depends on our ability to deeply understand our customers and build great products that will elegantly fulfill their needs. Product Engineers are passionate and highly motivated to build incredible products at massive scale. They fit somewhere between traditional Software Engineers and Product Managers, and the best candidates can leverage strengths in both disciplines to create world-changing software.

Product Engineers work on our flagship product teams like Dropbox for Business, Carousel, or Mailbox. We rely on them to do a variety of cross-functional, full-stack work (“whatever it takes to get the product out”). We’re looking for people who can take ownership of features and deliver an outstanding level of craft and polish to our customers.

Join our Product Engineering team to help us improve the lives of millions of users. If the description below sounds like you, we'd love to learn more and find out if we can work together.
