Dropbox is the world’s first smart workspace that helps people and teams focus on the work that matters.

Requirements

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science or a related technical field
  • 4+ years of Python or Java development experience
  • 4+ years of SQL experience (No-SQL experience is a plus)
  • 4+ years of experience with schema design and dimensional data modeling
  • Ability in managing and communicating data warehouse plans to internal clients.
  • Experience designing, building and maintaining data processing systems
  • Experience working with either a Map Reduce or a MPP system on any size/scale

  • Market competitive total compensation package
  • Free Dropbox space for your friends and family
  • Wellness Reimbursement
  • Generous vacation policy
  • 10 company paid holidays

Dropbox is an equal opportunity employer. We are a welcoming place for everyone, and we do our best to make sure all people feel supported and connected at work. A big part of that effort is our support for members and allies of internal groups like Asians at Dropbox, BlackDropboxers, Latinx, Pridebox (LGBTQ), Vets at Dropbox, Women at Dropbox, ATX Diversity (based in Austin, Texas) and the Dropbox Empowerment Network (based in Dublin, Ireland).
