Sr. Product Manager, Search & Metadata

Website Box

Box is the market leader for Cloud Content Management. Our mission is to power how the world works together. Box is partnering with enterprise organizations to accelerate their digital transformation by creating a single platform for secure content management, collaboration and workflow. We have an amazing opportunity to further establish ourselves as leaders in the space, and we need strong advocates to help us achieve that goal. 
By joining Box, you will have the unique opportunity to help capture a majority of this developing market and define what content management looks like for the digital enterprise. Today, Box powers over 98,000 businesses, including 70% of the Fortune 500 who trust Box to manage their content in the cloud. 
In this role, you will be responsible for driving and evangelizing two key Box products: Box Search and Box Metadata.  Box Search has a direct, positive impact on millions of users every day and is  central to our product experience across mobile, web, and desktop.   We need a product leader who is passionate about helping users find content in the most intuitive way possible using an engine that produces highly relevant results.    
Box’s Metadata product line has seen 100%+ growth every year since it launched, and that growth continues to accelerate.  Metadata plays a central part in our cloud content management strategy by enabling customers to enrich content and make it more valuable.   Metadata powers some of our most valuable and differentiated product experiences today, such as our ability to automatically scan, identify, and classify content (e.g. data loss protection, malware, etc.).   And we’re only just getting started with Metadata, as customers look to use content metadata to drive high-value use cases such as business processes, governance, contract management, and more.
We’re looking for an advocate, operator and product leader to own the vision for Metadata and Search and to mobilize Box to realize that vision.

  • Provide guidelines to solutions architecture, consulting, and sales engineers on best practices for high-scale deployments
  • Support the creation of product marketing materials, blog posts, and other content that highlights the technical thought leadership of Box
