Data Platform

The main goal of Box Data Platform team is to build self service platform to enable internal team to build messaging pipelines and data storage compute upload in cloud. Everything that the team does is doing everything at a scale and resiliency – e.g. processing 2-3 billion events per week and can’t drop a single one of them.

Technology stack:
Java, PHP, JavaScript, React.js, Docker, Cucumber/Cypress

Desktop Engineering

​​​​​​​The Desktop Engineering team builds applications that bring the power of Box’s content platform to where users get their work done – on their Windows & MacOS devices. Our desktop applications help users access and collaborate on their documents from cloud with the familiarity of their local computer and local applications. In this team you will work on Box client applications and your impact will reach millions of users, who use Box desktop apps.

Technology stack:
Java, Go, C++, Python, Jenkins/CircleCI, Docker, Kubernetes, Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform

Cloud Native Services

The team owns services to serve our users with deployment configurations, application management, high-availability setups, migration tooling, and effortless integrations into other platform components such as our service mesh and observability stack.

Our tech stack

What does Box's tech stack look like?

We use many different technologies to solve the challenges of supporting enterprise customers across the globe at massive scale. Our customers work using many different modalities (web, mobile, and desktop), and we need to provide an excellent user experience while operating a highly available, high-scale, and top-performing service.

How does Box operate at scale?

Box manages hundreds of petabytes of content, which means tens of billions of files are accessed by millions of users daily — and growing at an exponential rate. To ensure the right availability and scalability of our platform, we leverage multiple cloud platforms globally to meet this growth. Customers can choose exactly where they want their files stored geographically to help meet data privacy requirements, and we provide the right level of compliance for their storage needs.

How does Box ensure security and compliance?

Our engineers enable our customers to achieve the most advanced compliance requirements — like PCI, FINRA, HIPAA, and GxP — and can also enable new third-party security technologies that are critical for many customers. Additionally, we plan to extend our use of more advanced encryption techniques, such as key management services, to more aspects of our databases, search, and metadata to extend customer control and security.

How does Box support business continuity and fault tolerance?

Even though system failures and unexpected events are part of the reality, our engineers architect Box to anticipate and mitigate these types of challenges. When customers upload content to Box, we ensure files are redundantly stored in multiple data centers in the region(s) of the customer’s choice. Our storage durability helps customers stay ahead of concerns like data backups or data loss from a regional disasters, or fault tolerance
