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.

Today, Box powers 100,000+ businesses, including many top Fortune 500 companies, who trust our secure collaboration platform to manage the entire content lifecycle. 


Metadata is a key component of the Box Content Cloud, enabling customers to add additional context to their files and transforming them into actionable content. In the current iteration, it's used to organize, discover, annotate, secure, and retain content. Metadata Platform adoption continues to grow exponentially as more Box products, like Shield, Relay, Sign, Governance, etc, rely on it internally and as our customers continue to build custom applications leveraging it.

But, we've only scratched the surface of what's possible. That's where you come in!

As we embark on the mission to deliver a next-generation Metadata Platform, we're looking for a Senior Engineer to join us and play a pivotal role.
