Solution Architect

Box, Old Street, London

A Cloud Content Platform for the Digital Age

In order to solve our customers most complex challenges through application technical domain expertise, we are delighted to be adding our 2nd EMEA based Solution Architect. This is where you come in...


Why is it easier to share content on YouTube and Facebook than it is at work? At Box, we’re disrupting – and transforming – how businesses share, manage and collaborate on their content.

The Solutions Architect is part of the Customer Success organization and the Box Consulting team, and works across Box and with customers to define and build out complex solutions. This is high impact, high visibility role, responsible for ensuring customer happiness while promoting Box technical and platform solutions.

Play a meaningful role in building and sustaining customer and partner relationships while driving the adoption of the Box product and platform. The Solutions Architect also works closely with sales and field teams to maximize opportunities by understanding customer needs, envisioning a future state, and helping customers get there.

On any day, you could be advising an enterprise on how to design an application for a custom document vault or helping a customer migrate millions of files into Box. The next, you may be advising another on how to best integrate Box into their custom CRM. There is never a lack of technical challenges.
