With more than 500 million registered users across more than 180 countries, our mission is to design a more enlightened way of working. From our headquarters in San Francisco to eight dedicated Studios and a worldwide team of employees who choose where they work best, our Virtual First approach is leading the way into the future of work.

Team Description

Our Research & Design team crafts delightful experiences that make people's lives easier. We're a close-knit, collaborative group, guided by a highly iterative user-centered design process. Combining research, data, and thoughtful critique, we're discovering needs and solving fundamental problems that impact work and life for millions of people around the world.

Role Description

The Feature Discovery team is responsible for ensuring that our customers get value as quickly as possible in Dropbox. They design, and inform the creation of, internal tools to help other Dropbox teams validate features and drive the right users to discover them. This team ultimately manages the activation and feature discovery experiences for our Core product and is responsible for scaling our personalized activation experience approach.

As the designer on the Feature Discovery team, you will cultivate positive relationships with partners across the organization to understand the problems internal teams face as they advocate to drive customers to their features. You will support those teams in defining success, identifying their customer, designing a discovery moment, and consulting them on design best practices.

You will design and test MVP solutions and leverage and expand on existing internal tools for internal teams to run self-serve onboarding and feature discovery experiments. The tools you contribute to will help to develop the optimal onboarding experience across all SKUs — Basic, Plus, Pro, Family and Business.
