SRE, App Services

Box, Redwood City, CA

A Cloud Content Platform for the Digital Age

Box’s infrastructure is going through a massive transformation to enable our rapidly scaling business. At the heart of this transformation is our hybrid, multi-vendor cloud strategy. The SRE App Services team is responsible for driving the on-boarding of Box's application services onto platforms like OpenStack, Kubernetes, AWS, GCP, Azure and many more public cloud vendors in the future.

In this role, you will be developing the automation, systems and processes that enable rapid prototyping by development teams, while ensuring tight alignment with compliance and availability goals. As we evolve the infrastructure and move towards a service oriented architecture, it is imperative that we redefine how we think about operationalizing services in the future. You’ll be collaborating across Engineering and Product to ensure this is a core part of our SDLC.
Why the team needs you 
The SRE App Services team is packed with motivated engineers who understand the impact of our work to Box’s success. That breeds an amazing sense of ownership and pride within the team - values we believe will be key to adapt how we work in a world of micro-services and hybrid clouds. We would love to add someone who has seen this movie before (or parts thereof!) and can help shape the team’s vision with their domain expertise in one or more of public clouds, containers and cloud-native apps. 
Why Box needs you

As the leader in cloud content management, Box is the only company that can help enterprises transform how people work together. Come help us define a robust way to build, operate and scale the web-services that power this industry-leading mission!
