The web is a giant place, and Dropbox is working to make the gap between computers and the internet much smaller. Dropbox is one of the fastest growing startups anywhere, and we’re serving companies, schools, and millions of people worldwide. Dropbox is working on big problems; the kind of challenges that give you bragging rights, but we’re nowhere near finished. Our greatest accomplishments are still waiting for you to build them.

We’ve got a pretty broad vision for where we want to head next: we want to tie everyone’s devices and services together to become the file system of the internet. And because we have such a small team, you’ll be owning huge ideas from the start. Meanwhile, you’ll join talented teammates to create something that simplifies people’s lives.

About DropBox

Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc., that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, and client software. Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronizes so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of which computer is used to view it. Files placed in this folder also are accessible through a website and mobile phone applications.
