Sr. Frontend Engineer, Security

Box is a lot more than just file storage, syncing and sharing. Every business in the world is looking to modernize the way that they work. Our product offers many features to companies that enable them to trust Box with their most sensitive content and make them productive within and outside their organization. This is where Box thrives and what differentiates us from competition. We are changing the way people work at a global scale. 
Why the Security team needs you
This team is building a product that empowers our customers to trust Box with their most sensitive data by – a) protecting content through its lifecycle, b) enabling users to work securely without friction, and c) delivering world-class security services that provide access to Box’s security experts.
We do this by solving the following problems:
  • Monitor external and insider threats
  • Detect ransomware and automate response
  • Get visibility into shared links
  • Review security alerts in Admin Console
  • Get 24x7 value-added security services
Why Box needs you
We are looking for engineers with a passion for building out user-facing security and enterprise features that are able to handle complex use-cases in a robust and easy-to-use way. We are specifically focusing on building the best user experience to help customers stay secure, detect anomalous behavior and present it in a way that's easy to consume.  As an engineer in the Security team, you will join a small, diverse, fast-paced, full-stack team that works together to build new, easy-to-use capabilities that help Box’s customers protect their Box content.  Security being a horizontal product, you will work across teams to design and implement capabilities that power mission-critical use-cases in a future-proof way.  
While Security-related front-end tasks are what you'll be working on immediately, you will be able to expand your scope to wider enterprise and end-user areas.
