Product Manager - Metadata

Purpose

It's an amazing time to be working at Box, especially for product managers. Box is at a unique point where we have a large influence on the market and impact to our customers, yet are still at a size where individual product managers play a meaningful role in driving that impact. With millions of users on our platform, each product manager has an opportunity to ship products that will change the way people work.

We are looking for a product manager to lead the direction of our content infrastructure. You'll work closely with our engineers, product managers, and customer success teams to build out the functionality necessary to power the new experiences that customers want to use to interact with their data.

Why the team needs you

Box is growing fast. Real fast. Every business in the world is looking to modernize the way that they work. As the leader in cloud content management, Box is the only company that can help enterprises transform how people work together.

The metadata product has seen 100x growth in the past 2 years, and this is expected to continue to exponentially increase. Metadata is a top priority for Box's growth, as this is central to cloud content management, and a strong product lead would be bringing a strong end-user focus and enterprise background to drive the vision. You will be a strong advocate for metadata within the company to mobilize many teams cross functionally to build this common layer.

Why you need Box

This is a product area with lots of attention so you will be highly visible and engaged across the business. On one day, you'll be talking to the IT team that drives hundreds of thousands of Box users at a Fortune 500 company. The next, you'll be working with developers on prioritization of infrastructure projects. You will have lots of ownership, with interaction with many VP+ individuals to deliver the metadata product.

Who you are

You've developed products before and bring a technical rigor to the role. You love getting into the nitty-gritty details of technical infrastructure and solving for both customer value and cost. You care deeply about how your products materially make your customers' lives better. You understand the business and the analytics/metrics that drive success. Most of all, everyday you work collaboratively with design, analytics, and engineering team members to bring amazing products to market. Expect to be hands on as a creator, evangelist, and product manager, defining our metadata story and laying out the content and infrastructure to power internal and external teams.
