Meet the veterans helping to make the world work better at Dropbox

At Dropbox, going Virtual First means we have the ability to hire from different backgrounds and locations — which means we have an even greater opportunity to create a more diverse workforce. We’re always looking for outside-the-box thinkers and strategic problem solvers who can apply their past experiences towards their current endeavors. That means actively looking outside traditional hiring pools and actively seeking out candidates, like veterans, who bring a unique level of expertise and leadership to all our teams.

While these veterans are currently helping all of us at Dropbox make the world work better, we want to honor their service by sharing how these Dropboxers served their country in their previous roles. Read on to see the then and now comparisons of these Dropboxer veterans!
