It’s an amazing time to be working at Box. With millions of users on our platform, we have an opportunity to ship products that fundamentally change the way that people work. We are looking for a technical writer to lead all aspects of documentation here at Box.

Box is growing fast. Really fast. Every business in the world is looking to modernize the way that they work. As the leader in cloud content management, Box is the only company that can help enterprises transform how people work together. As the technical writer responsible for all Box documentation, you will be creating content that will be consumed by users in many of Fortune 500 companies.

You know quality writing when you see it (and create it).

  • Clean up and organize existing help content to ensure only most relevant content is presented
