Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
In 2011, when Dropbox had just 35 employees, we held our first-ever Hack Week. It gave us a chance to get back to our roots: small, agile groups of creative Dropboxers solving exciting problems together. We transformed the office into a giant workshop, and turned the ideas that we’d been dreaming up into reality. Since then, we’ve grown to over 1,200 employees in offices around the world, and Hack Week has grown into a beloved annual tradition of exploring how we can make Dropbox better for our users.
At Dropbox, we don’t like boundaries — we think people make their best stuff when they’re given the creative freedom to pursue their wildest ideas.
Making sure only you can access your account is an important part of keeping Dropbox safe. Today, we’re adding Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) security keys as an additional method for two-step verification, giving you stronger authentication protection.
Following recent additions to our Sales and Product leadership, we’re thrilled to announce our own Akhil Gupta is being promoted to VP of Infrastructure and joining our executive team. Over the past three years, Akhil’s been indispensable to Dropbox — scaling our infrastructure as our user base has grown eightfold to over 400 million.
On the heels of our latest executive hire, we couldn’t be happier to welcome Todd Jackson, our first VP of Product! Todd’s an exceptionally talented leader who shares our passion for creating products people love and has struck us with his thoughtful approach to building teams.
Technology needs to be more than just available — it needs to be accessible. That’s why we’re excited to team up with our peers in tech, academia, and advocacy — including Yahoo! and Facebook — on a working group designed to foster accessibility.
