Top tech talent brings Box to Warsaw

One of the world’s biggest cloud platforms is looking to recruit some of Europe’s top tech talent from a new base in Warsaw, Poland.

Box, one of the world’s leading cloud content management platforms, has opened a new research and development engineering site in the Polish capital Warsaw.

To help accelerate its long-term product strategy, the company is building a team in Poland which will drive some of Box’s most important product developments, in partnership with its established team headquartered in Redwood City, California.

Box is planning to hire 150 employees based in Warsaw over the coming 24 months. In addition to the predominantly engineering focus, Box also intends to hire across multiple functional areas including web development, people operations, and more.

World-class engineers

“We’re thrilled that we now have an office to call home in central Warsaw, and we have already started local recruitment to find and hire Poland’s greatest talent,” says Thierry Chassaing, senior vice president of engineering and TechOps at Box. “Beginning right away, our teams in Warsaw will help execute our product roadmap allowing us to move even faster as we continue to build our cloud content management platform.”

“Warsaw is an incredibly exciting location. The city gives us access to world-class, experienced engineers with Poland having one of Europe’s largest English-speaking software development talent pools. We can’t wait to build our newest team in Poland as we continue to grow our international footprint,” he adds.

Ideal location

“We have a tremendous opportunity to grow our team through the rich and diverse talent here,” says Rafal Szczepanski, Polish country leader for Box. “A modern city, Warsaw is the ideal location to recruit Europe’s leading engineers.”

With more than 100,000 customers, Box serves some of the world’s largest organisations, including General Electric, AstraZeneca, Morgan Stanley, the Metropolitan Police Service of London, P&G, Schneider Electric, Eurostar, and more.

Since its 2012 European debut in the United Kingdom, Box – founded in 2005 – has established a strong European footprint. It today employs over 200 staff in Europe, and continues to expand its international presence with more than 2,000 global employees based in the Americas, APAC, and Europe.
