Flexible - remote, Israel

Company Description

Dropbox is now a Virtual First company, which means work outside of an office will be the primary experience for all employees. Being Virtual First also means the location of our employees is targeted but flexible. If “Location Flexible” is listed in the job title of a role, the role can be located in any of the states where Dropbox is authorized to do business.** Some roles (including those which do not have “Location Flexible” in the job title), however, may have to be co-located with their teams in certain locations. Please work with your recruiter and your hiring manager to understand any location constraints of a particular role and to communicate your location preferences. **Dropbox is authorized to do business in many, but not all, states. If you are not located in or able to work from a state where Dropbox is registered, you will not be eligible for employment. Please speak with your recruiter to learn more about where Dropbox is registered.

Role Description

In Dropbox TLV we are working on one of the most strategic Dropbox investments - helping our users organize their content and find what they need. The aspiration is not just to be a huge repository with Search capabilities, but to build an outstanding experience that relies on the fact that behind the scenes, the data is organized with metadata using machine learning and other capabilities.
Additionally, While Dropbox is used by millions of individual users, it is also used by many users in Mid size and Enterprise companies. In those companies, there is another Dropbox user and that is the Dropbox Admin. In Dropbox TLV, we are building powerful tools that empower our Admins and team creators to be champions for users, and to help them maintain security, control, and visibility— for collaboration at scale. We’re making this happen by taking the same “user-first” design approach that’s helped us grow to half a billion registered users, and applying it to our admin tools.
As a Product Designer at Dropbox, you’ll tackle complex problems that will transform the way people work. You’ll collaborate with likeminded designers, engineers and product managers to define product strategy and find inspiring ways to delight our users around the world. We’re looking for curious and inventive full stack product designers to create end-to-end experiences - from identifying and understanding pain points to owning the craft and finish of every detail in the product.
