And just small enough that you can play an important role in that delivery. With millions of users on our platform, we have an opportunity to ship products that will change the way that people work.

Box is a recognized leader in the cloud security space. We understand that security is an ever-evolving landscape of vulnerabilities, new techniques, and best practices, so we’re doubling down our efforts. We have an experienced application security team and we’ve done the basics, but we want to expand our capabilities and knowledge. We’re in search for a security engineer who thinks like an attacker — outside of the box — and who is also able to translate identified issues into actionable outcomes for the product, development, and operations teams.
