— Drew Houston, Co-founder and CEO, Dropbox
“Dropbox is a place where you can have a pretty big impact. You can take your skills from the military and directly apply them to how we’re running the business. There’s not a lot of structure to hold you back; people at Dropbox are very willing to listen to good ideas regardless of where they come from.”
Technical Program Manager, U.S. Navy
“The Marine Corps has shaped me in a lot of ways that are complimentary to my career now at Dropbox. The most important things to me are leadership and accountability. It’s okay to not always have to lead, but to follow and learn; I have no problem being a leader, and I also very much enjoy having a mentor on my side and following those who I can learn from. I also keep myself honest and accountable for everything I’m responsible for. Even when I’m wrong and make mistakes, I own it; it’s important for peers and leadership to have confidence in everything that you do.”
Technical Architect, U.S. Marine Corps
“The Army trains you to make decisions quickly and execute on them rather than wait for a perfect solution. A 90% solution right now is better than a perfect solution a week from now, and most decisions can be reversible as well. In the software industry, not making decisions can plague you, so it’s a balance of empowering the people you’re working with and making those quick decisions when someone is blocked.”
