Job Description

Company Description

Dropbox is a special place where we are all seeking to fulfill our mission to design a more enlightened way of working. We’re looking for innovative talent to join us on our journey. The words shared by our founders at the start of Dropbox still ring true today. Wouldn’t it be great if our working environment—and the tools we use—were designed with people’s actual needs in mind? Imagine if every minute at work were well spent—if we could focus and spend our time on the things that matter. This is possible, and Dropbox is connecting the dots. The nearly 3,000 Dropboxers around the world have helped make Dropbox a living workspace – the place where people come together and their ideas come to life. Our 700+ million global users have been some of our best salespeople, and they have helped us acquire customers with incredible efficiency. As a result, we reached a billion dollar revenue run rate faster than any software-as-a-service company in history. Dropbox is making the dream of a fulfilling and seamless work life a reality. We hope you’ll join us on the journey.

Team Description

Our Communications team brings the Dropbox story to life and shares it with the world. From product announcements to user stories to speaking engagements, our work takes many forms and reaches diverse, international audiences. We build compelling narratives to help people connect with our product, brand, and vision.

Role Description

As an Editorial Strategist on our Editorial Content team, you‘ll work alongside the Office of the CEO to write and edit company-wide messaging on our corporate narrative, product development, and other high-level priorities. This person will play a critical role in ensuring the stories our most senior leaders tell are clear, logically sound, and compelling. You’ll work alongside a group of curious writers and editors who craft narrative content for a range of disciplines including marketing, communications, and engineering. This is a great opportunity for a highly skilled writer and critical thinker to get substantial exposure to executives, learn the inner workings of a tech operation, and impact the strategic direction of a public company.


  • Partner with senior leaders across the company to craft inspiring and impactful strategic content

  • Improve engagement and understanding of our company strategy by elevating how that story is told

  • Write and edit long-form narrative stories that align with our company strategy and vision on our external blog

  • Navigate ambiguity and juggle competing priorities in a fast-paced environment


  • Bachelors degree and 8+ years of relevant experience as a journalist or long-form story editor in media, a strategist at an editorial agency, or an editorial content writer at a tech company.

  • Excellent communication skills and a collaborative spirit. You can help engineers find a clear way to describe how our desktop sync engine operates and work cross-functionally to translate a corporate strategy for a broad audience.

  • Strong executive presence. You can confidently and clearly communicate with senior leaders, earn their trust, and reliably deliver on deadlines.
