Cloud Storage Company Dropbox Recruits Staff for Dublin Office
Cloud storage company Dropbox is recruiting staff for its Dublin, Ireland office as the company increases business activity in Europe. Dublin will be the first of a number of European Dropbox offices. The company plans to fill a range of positions in the Irish capital, adding to the 15 members of staff the company already employs in the city.

Established in 2007, Dropbox provides online storage for documents, photos and videos. It allows users to easily share items with friends and co-workers. Started by MIT students Arash Ferdowsi and Drew Houston, Dropbox offers 2GB of storage free of charge, with paid 'Pro' and 'Business' accounts offering up to a maximum of 1TB of storage for up to 5 users. The service is used by around 175 million people around the world.

Although the bulk of positions available in Dublin will require a European language as a requirement, Johann Butting, Dropbox's Ireland Country Manager, was reported in the online edition of the Irish Independentnewspaper as suggesting the company will take on anyone who has the right skills.

"The Dropbox Associate Programme is what we use to bring in people either straight out of college or who are a year or two into their career," explained Mr. Butting. "We don't have a specific 'checklist' of what we want from people. We want staff that are excellent communicators, very analytically minded or 'bring a spark' to the business. The programme will see successful applicants undergo extensive training both here and in San Francisco. It is vital for us that new people can appreciate the culture of the company and understand how we go about our business."

People interested in applying to Dropbox can see available positions on the company's website.
