Ever wonder why working as a team takes you farther than flying solo? At this year’s South by Southwest Conference & Festivals, we’ll be asking influencers how they work as bands, podcasters, comedy teams, and more. We want to learn how they get into the creative zone, take inspiration from others, and combine their talents to create something they couldn’t on their own.
We’re thrilled to announce that Nicholas Jitkoff is joining Dropbox as our VP of Design! Nicholas joins us from Google where he led the work of the Material Design team, iterating with product groups across the company to create a coherent design language for Google’s suite of products.
Over 75% of people using Dropbox today come from outside the US—with different needs and backgrounds. We believe it takes a diverse team to build innovative products that delight users, and we’re committed to building an inclusive culture that reflects the world around us.
Hundreds of millions of people trust Dropbox to keep their data private and secure. One way we work to earn that trust is through our commitment to transparency about government requests for user information. Since 2012, we’ve made these requests public in our Transparency Report. Today we’re publishing the details of the government data requests we’ve received from January through June of 2016.
Last year, we were very proud that Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), awarded Dropbox a perfect score for LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Today, we’re happy to announce that we have achieved that perfect score again for 2017, and that Fortune Great Places to Work has named us a Best Workplace for Diversity, as well as a Best Workplace for Asian Americans. These recognitions underscore our commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community at Dropbox.
