Head of Quality Engineering

One of the reasons I chose Dropbox was because it has very mature DEI and Human Resource Business Partner (HRBP) departments. As a Black woman in engineering, those things are really important to me; I need to depend on those things to make sure that work is a safe place for me and people who look like me and people that I identify with in some way. Dropbox has done a really great job of making sure that I’m aware that I’m supported.

I chose Dropbox because of the people. Everyone I met was really friendly and supportive, and the culture was extremely collaborative, which was really welcoming to me and has kept me here for six years

I also chose Dropbox for the people. The office culture and interview experience was so warm and friendly; I left the interview day feeling energized, not exhausted, which was so different from some of the other interview days I had experienced. That collaboration and that spririt has lived on, even through us going Virtual First. We’ve continued to have a connected culture with methods like team-building through online games, and a lot more thoughtfulness in our meeting culture to take time at the beginning to check in on each other and what’s going on in our lives.

I visited Chicago once, and I loved it. I am very fortunate to work at a company that encourages their employees to relocate to be closer to their loved ones or, like myself, take the opportunity to self-discover outside the main tech hubs.
