M+E Technology Job Board

Sr. Manager, Cloud Infrastructure


Box is the market leader for Cloud Content Management. Our mission is to power how the world works together. Box is partnering with enterprise organizations to accelerate their digital transformation by creating a single platform for secure content management, collaboration and workflow. We have an amazing opportunity to further establish ourselves as leaders in the space, and we need strong advocates to help us achieve that goal.

By joining Box, you will have the unique opportunity to help capture a majority of this developing market and define what content management looks like for the digital enterprise. Today, Box powers over 97,000 businesses, including 70% of the Fortune 500 who trust Box to manage their content in the cloud.

As the leader for our Kubernetes SRE team, you and your team will own Box’s Kubernetes platform, powering our PaaS solution. This system is the heart of our business and the key platform for Box’s services, running at a scale that exceeds most companies and estimated to grow significantly in the next couple of years. This manager will have the opportunity to lead this environment through an exciting (but interesting) phase of it’s lifecycle as we transform to meet our Hybrid cloud strategy — emphasizing availability, performance and quality. We’re looking for someone that combines technical breadth and depth with strong management chops to successfully define and deliver on the roadmap.

We’re a diverse mix of backgrounds and skillsets and each of us makes a big difference every day. We need someone who knows how to run systems at scale and is passionate about using software to run them rather than shell prompts. In particular we’re looking for a principled leader who can grow the team and has equal parts EQ and IQ and a desire to continually learn in both domains.
