Role Description
We are looking for a Product Designer to join our Professional team to focus on solving the problems that prevent Creative Professional, as well as other Professionals like teachers, lawyers, accountants, and contractors, from doing their most inspired work centered around the content they create. In the short term, the Professional team is experimenting on different ways to bring value to the Professional through end-to-end workflows, learning what makes them zing, and connecting the tools they use to Dropbox so they can crush their day-to-day from one place.
This role is best suited for a Product Designer who is energized by framing problems clearly, generating solutions, building rich experiences, prototyping and testing ideas with users, and shipping high quality experiences that delight our customers.
In this role, you will flex your interaction design, visual design, solution generation and design process in general. You will stretch into the Dropbox Core organization and collaborate with multiple partners to bring the vision to life. You will also have the opportunity to expand on the vision, validate direction, and find new and exciting ways to bring value to our customer.
This role is special because it is focused on bringing value directly to the Creative Professional by creating new value, as well as collaborating across the company and bringing the value that other teams are creating to the Creative Professional.
Lastly, you’ll be a part of more than just the Professional team — you will be part of Dropbox design. You will learn from, and give back to, some of the best designers around the globe.
Veterans encouraged to apply!
Responsibilities
  • Framing problems and solutions, and helping to align your team on the path forward through a design led-lens.
  • Collaborating with Product, Research, Data Science, Content Design, and other partners to identify customer centered problems.
  • Exploring a wide breadth of solutions, and pushing the boundaries on what great solutions might look like.
  • Leading design Sprints, brainstorms and other generative working sessions.
  • Designing polished interfaces, meaningful interactions, holistic experiences and identifying and solving for edge cases.
  • Working independently, and with Research partners, to test your designs.
  • Collaborating with Engineering partners to surface technical challenges.
  • Collaborating with Product, Research, and Data Science to assess the results of your projects, and determine what steps to take to iterate. 
  • Evangelizing and presenting learnings and best practices with other Designers across Dropbox.
Requirements
  • A candidate who has strong interaction design to execute great prototypes and ideas that will be coming out of the vision work
  • A candidate who can step into a researcher role to validate ideas with our users and generate reports
  • A candidate who can collaborate and work closely with other teams to either bring in other team’s features into Pro or work on a new feature together (an example of this is the collaboration that will need to happen between Pro-Mobile, Pro-Workflows, Pro-Flexible teams, to name a few)
  • A candidate with strong visual design who can ship and execute at a high bar
  • Someone who can collaborate with product partners (especially Engineering) to define edge cases, solutions, run design reviews, etc.
  • A thought partner who will collaborate, challenge and work with me in bringing our vision to life by designing experiences as part of initiatives we'll execute on.
  • Great at designing and prototyping and using the prototypes to tell a great story

An Insider's view of Dropbox

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

In the first time in over a decade, I’ve been able to actually have work life balance and to develop healthy habits because of Virtual First. My commute time is now filled with a morning workout and the end of my day now looks like being able to cook for myself. I also was able to move closer to family, which means the world to me.

Caitlin

Diversity Program Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

In a world that’s radically shifting virtual, it’s exciting to be at a company aiming to solve a lot of the problems at the crux of the transition. I’ve been working on projects that help small businesses using Dropbox collaborate and improve their overall user experience.

Micah

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Dropbox has provided me a great opportunity to work with some of the top talent in the industry. The amount of creativity and innovation I have been apart of has been amazing. Whether you’re an individual contributor or a VP, Dropbox provides amazing opportunity, training, and support for your career.

Latane

Head of Physical Infrastructure

What is your vision for the company?

I see the 40-hour office workweek becoming a thing of the past. Employees will escape grueling commutes and gain more control over their day. The workplace will now be wherever work happens, and the workweek will be whenever work happens best for each person. We'll grow stronger as we integrate dispersed talent with diverse perspectives.

Drew

Co-founder and CEO

How does the company support your career growth?

There’s always an opportunity to pivot and learn new skills or internally transfer to a team that’s outside your normal scope of work. The humility and empathy that Dropboxers have is unlike anywhere else I’ve worked. There’s always going to be someone on the other side willing to bring you in on a project or mentor you.
