Dropbox is a special place where we are all seeking to fulfill our mission to design a more enlightened way of working. We’re looking for innovative talent to join us on our journey. The words shared by our founders at the start of Dropbox still ring true today. Wouldn’t it be great if our working environment—and the tools we use—were designed with people’s actual needs in mind? Imagine if every minute at work were well spent—if we could focus and spend our time on the things that matter. This is possible, and Dropbox is connecting the dots.

Our 700+ million global users have been some of our best salespeople, and they have helped us acquire customers with incredible efficiency. As a result, we reached a billion dollar revenue run rate faster than any software-as-a-service company in history. Dropbox is making the dream of a fulfilling and seamless work life a reality. We hope you’ll join us on the journey.

Role Description

You will have direct responsibility for the Dropbox product strategy, a product loved by 700m+ users worldwide focused on the universal organization, workflow, and search layer for all our user’s content. You will also have significant strategic impact and influence on the overall company direction. You will work closely with teams to deliver on existing value and develop the new Dropbox core experiences that help users sync, organize, and share their content, wherever they are, from any device. 

When you join, you’ll will be responsible for leading key company initatives alongside cross-org and cross-functional teams which are critical to deliver on the company’s goals through shipping high quality customer experiences. A successful product leader will be able to come in, ramp on the domain quickly and balance perspectives across a range of functions, bring relevant experience, competitive insights and then set direction that empowers and energizes teams to deliver their best work in a fast-paced environment. At times, these functions while having aligned incentives, will need to be brought along on the prioritization that’s most critical for reaching goals. You will need to have a deep understanding of users, strong analytical skills and design sense and high bar for product craft. 

Responsibilities

  • Define and evangelize company-level product vision, strategy and roadmaps for key parts of the Dropbox product experience that deeply engages users across Dropbox’s self-serve and managed products. 
  • Lead and engage lock-step with Marketing, Data Science, Pricing and Packaging, Research and our customers to understand, analyze, synthesize and evangelize key user needs and opportunities into product priorities, roadmaps and detailed PRDs. 
  • Collaborate and cultivate strong relationships across Engineering and Design to test, quickly iterate and launch experiences that will support acceleration of monetization through activation and onboarding experiences.  
  • Become an expert on Dropbox’s growth engine - understanding how to improve key funnels and flywheels. 

Requirements

  • 10+ years experience as a Product Manager
  • Strong empathy for users — a customer champion
  • Entrepreneurial drive and demonstrated ability to achieve stretch goals in an innovative and fast-paced environment. You can turn ambiguous problems and big ideas into an actionable roadmap of features, experiments, research — all with minimal guidance
  • Deep understanding of how your products work together — and what levers equate to short v. long-term success. You can quickly understand and translate results and how they ladder up to the larger goal set. 
  • You can make hard decisions — and push those around you to excel, even when they’re not in your organization. 
  • Leadership experience in coordinating and motivating teams across multiple organizational boundaries 
  • Excitement about building product experiences that create measurable business value, and in a time of extreme transformation 
  • Understanding of how business impact ladders into financial results and business performance
