Software Engineer - Infrastructure

Dropbox, Seattle, WA

File hosting service


Role Description

The Dropbox Infrastructure Engineering team is passionate about building awesome products at massive scale. We've developed a set of values that enable us to do this. Specifically, we write great software and sweat the details, relentlessly focus on impact, and create an enduring culture. Creating elegant products begins with lots of hacking and iteration to explore the problem space. It culminates in careful attention to edge cases and error handling, polished code, and great tests to ensure that we ship reliable code that never compromises data integrity or security. Every Dropbox software release improves millions of lives, and you'll find high petabyte-to-engineer and Gbps-to-engineer ratios here. We're aggressive about shipping high-leverage projects, even if they're risky or novel. We care deeply about collaboration, feedback, and iteration. Trust and respect are deeply rooted in our engineering culture.
