The Platform organization at Box enables developers within and outside of Box to build secure, intelligent, and scalable applications on top of content. Using the APIs, SDKs, and integrations we build, developers can focus on creating great experiences that leverage the same technology that powers Box, including file viewing, security, collaboration, and much more. We currently have open roles on the Preview team.
Box Preview allows users to securely view their documents and media files on desktop and mobile web without leaving the Box web application and is the most used product feature at Box, serving over 45 million previews a week. Preview is built as a JavaScript library on top of the Box API and powers content viewing in the Box web experience and in various platform offerings like Box Elements.
