We’re proud to announce that Dropbox has been recognized by Great Place to Work on six of their ‘Best Workplaces’ lists in 2020. There are so many aspects to what makes Dropbox what it is, but we know the secret ingredient has always been our people-- because you can’t have a great place to work without great people to work with. Thanks to our Dropboxers for making Dropbox a great place to work each and every day.
Dropbox is now a Virtual First company! Now, you may be wondering, how will this affect our day-to-day? Culture and community are such a huge part of what makes working at Dropbox special, and while going virtual will bring changes, we have big plans in place to keep the magic that makes Dropbox what it is alive and thriving. To help guide our employees during this transition, we’ve created a Virtual First toolkit! We know this will be an evolving document, and we recognize we don’t have all the answers right now, but we are so excited for the road ahead. Take a look behind the scenes of how we’re moving towards our Virtual First future.
