Our Dropbox Values

Published on October 03, 2022

As new tech companies pop up every day, and as more people plan careers in tech, it can be difficult to choose between so many companies — especially when cool perks, unique experiences, and great benefits are commonplace offerings. But one thing that helps potential team members make their decision, because it truly shows what an organization is really all about, is company values.

At Dropbox, our values are absolutely integral to everything we do. Every team member, past and present, has played a part in helping us define what really matters to us — and how these foundational beliefs and behaviors help us, in turn, design a more enlightened way of working. Here they are!

Be Worthy of Trust

Millions of teams trust us with their most important information. But this trust can vanish in an instant. That’s why integrity is the foundation of our culture. We do the right thing, even when nobody’s looking. And we’re honest—even when it’s uncomfortable.

They Win, We Win

Our customers come first. So we put in the work to deeply understand them. We ask, “Who’s the customer?” and “What do they really need?” When they succeed, our business (and everything else) falls into place.

Keep It Simple

Simple things work better—and make more sense. So we build products that do a few things really well. And we don’t overcomplicate life at Dropbox, whether it’s a plan or a process. Getting to simple isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the effort.

Own It

We take responsibility for our work, from start to finish. When we get stuck, we unblock ourselves. When something goes wrong, we don’t ask, “What did they screw up?” but “What could I do better?” We learn from our mistakes and keep going—until we have real impact.

Make Work Human

Our mission is to design a more enlightened way of working, for Dropboxers and the world. So we make products that prioritize our needs as humans. And we build a compassionate culture where you can do your best work—no matter who you are or where you’re from.
