Job Description

Dropbox simplifies the way people work together. Hundreds of millions of people around the world use Dropbox to work the way they want, on any device, wherever they go. As we scale our global brand, there's plenty of space for you to grow alongside us and simplify life for millions of people globally.

Our engineering team is working to simplify the way people work together. They're building a family of products that handle over a billion files a day for people around the world. With our broad mission and massive scale, there are countless opportunities to make an impact.

We have new grad openings in San Francisco, Seattle and New York! Apply to this role if you're interested in any of these offices, and we'll figure out what's the best placement during the interview process.

Your role and impact

The new grad engineering position at Dropbox is a role that blends learning with impact. New grads take ownership of impactful projects from day one - yes you'll commit code on your first day, and the learning never ceases. Whether you're learning during our on-boarding program, working with your assigned mentor, lead and other experienced engineers on your team or attending company-wide development events & programs, you're sure to gain knowledge and experience that will set you up for success.

Creating elegant products begins with lots of prototyping and iteration to explore the problem space. We care deeply about collaboration and feedback during the iterative development process. It culminates in careful attention to edge cases and error handling, polished code, and great tests to ensure that we ship a reliable product that never compromises data integrity or security. Every Dropbox software release reaches hundreds of millions of people, and the user-to-engineer and petabyte-to-engineer ratio are very high here.

As a new grad, there are many different types of roles and teams that you can have an impact on. Open positions are based on team and business need. Here are some of the things you might do:


* On the product engineering team, you'll build delightful full-stack user experiences that solve real customer needs and drive tons of $$ for Dropbox - across backend, api, desktop, mobile and web.
* On the infrastructure engineering team, you'll craft the building blocks that let us scale Dropbox to handle millions of concurrent connections, hundreds of billions of files and hundreds of petabytes of data.
* As an analytics engineer, you'll measure, optimize and build one of the industry's most advanced analytics platforms to derive meanings from vast amounts of data. Our analytics platform processes more data than many other analytics companies combined.
* Mobile engineers are Objective-C, Swift, Java and C++ wizards - they know the ins and outs of the iOS and Android SDK and can weave and bend the API's to their will to craft the Dropbox client experience on mobile devices. They also build the backend systems that power the mobile experiences and optimize the protocol between client and server for reliability, efficiency and speed.
* Web engineers are responsible for our website - dropbox.com and paper.dropbox.com. They do everything product engineers do but they're also deeply interested in building a fast, scalable and responsive Dropbox experience for the modern web, using cutting-edge tools like Typescript, React and Redux.
* Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) live dangerously on the boundary of software and hardware - they have a deep understanding of the internals of our products, but they're also interested in ensuring our products work well on real-world hardware in our data centers. They build the software and automation that controls the hardware that runs our products, and they're the first line of defense when there's something wrong with our production infrastructure or services.
* People trust Dropbox to keep their data secure, and at Dropbox we rely on our security engineers to secure our products and poke holes them. Security engineering encompasses consulting with product teams to secure the software we build and securing our production infrastructure, our website, desktop and mobile apps and our corporate IT infrastructure and devices. Security engineers are software engineers with a deep interest in building software that is secure yet easy to use. An interest in the shadowy computer underworld is a definite plus!


* Computer Science (or similar) students that are graduating in December 2016 or Summer 2017, from Undergraduate, Master's or Ph.D. programs.
* If you have experience writing or shipping software as part of internships, personal projects, coding competitions or research and the work we do at Dropbox resonates with you, we'd love to learn more about you.
* Please note that candidates requiriing an H1-B visa to work in the U.S. must also qualify for an alternative visa in order to be considered for this position. Alternative visa options are limited to OPT, or TN visas (Canadian and Mexican citizens), E-3 visas (Australian citizens), or H-1B1 visas (Singaporean and Chilean citizens). If you are not eligible for any of the alternative visas listed for full-time roles, we will not be able to move forward in the interview process

Benefits and Perks

* 100% company paid individual medical, dental, & vision insurance coverage
* 401k + company match
* Market competitive total compensation package
* Free Dropbox space for your friends and family
* Wellness Reimbursement
* Generous vacation policy
* 10 company paid holidays
* Volunteer time off
* Company sponsored tech talks (technology and other relevant professional topics)

Dropbox is an equal opportunity employer. We are a welcoming place for everyone, and we do our best to make sure people feel supported and connected at work. Groups like Women at Dropbox, Latin@s, Black Dropboxers, and Pridebox (for LGBTQ employees and allies) are a big part of that effort.

* Below please include a personal email address rather than a school email address so that Dropbox may communicate effectively with you.
