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


We are looking for a Product Designer to join our Professional team to design solutions that empower Professionals to do their most inspired work centered around the content they create. The Professional team is experimenting on different ways to bring value to the Professional through end-to-end workflows, learning what makes them zing, and connecting the tools they use to Dropbox so they can crush their day-to-day from one place.


This role is best suited for a Product Designer who is energized by UI & UX execution. We’re looking for a Product Designer who spikes in generating solutions, building holistic features, prototyping for usability testing, and shipping high quality experiences.


In this role, you will flex your solution generation, interaction design, visual design, and design process in general. You will stretch into the Dropbox Core organization and collaborate with multiple partners to bring the vision to life. You will also have the opportunity to expand on the vision, validate direction, and find new and exciting ways to bring value to Professionals.


This special role focuses on bringing value directly to the Professional by creating new value. You’ll collaborate with your immediate team, x-fn partners in Product, Engineering, Brand Design, Product Marketing, Growth, Data Science, Research and Product Design partners. You’ll also work outside your team, and across the company, to pull in all the value that other teams are creating to the Creative Professional.


Lastly, you’ll be a part of more than just the Professional team — you will be part of Dropbox design. You will learn from, and give back to, some of the best Product Designers around the world.
