Over time, to achieve growth and scale for Dropbox, you’ll develop new product initiatives, drive their implementation, and own their outcomes.
 As a new grad product manager, you’ll take part in a holistic onboarding program that includes talks from people across the the company, community building events, and opportunities to take part in all parts of the product management lifecycle. We’ll work with you to match you with a team that best fits your skills and interests. All new grad product managers will have experienced managers and mentors who are dedicated to their growth and success. You’ll also take part in an enriching training curriculum throughout your first year here at Dropbox.
 You and your fellow new grad product managers will go through many of these experiences together. This year, we’ll be placing new grads into both San Francisco & Seattle, depending on your preference.  Please indicate which office(s) you’re interested in when completing your application.
