Dropbox Establishes Office in Sydney

April 17, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

Dropbox, a service that lets you bring your documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, announced today that it is establishing an office in Sydney, Australia.

Legian Beach Hotel-httpwww.legianbeachbaliSydney represents the company’s first office in the region and will enable Dropbox to better provide support and service to the hundreds of millions of people across the world who use Dropbox to simplify their personal and work lives.

“Sydney is quickly building a reputation as the hub for many of the world’s most advanced and innovative companies, illustrated by the arrival of another top US company like Dropbox,” said Andrew Stoner, deputy premier and minister for trade and investment, New South Wales. “Sydney is a natural home for Dropbox and our talented workforce will play a major part in the expanding Dropbox story as the company continues to build its international presence.”

The company’s new office will be positioned to provide the people and businesses that use Dropbox with top service and support in a more geolocated manner. With over 275 million users in 200 countries, including

International Dropbox for Business customers like BCBG, National Geographic, and Under Armour, Dropbox’s new office opening comes at an ideal time to support the company’s growth and expansion.

“Today we’re delighted to establish our new home in Australia,” said Dennis Woodside, chief operating officer at Dropbox. “By opening our first APAC office in Sydney we gain access to Australia’s great pool of talent, and can serve more local users and businesses as we continue to grow.”

The initial goal of Dropbox’s Sydney office is to hire for a variety of positions particularly in customer-facing roles like sales and user operations. The Sydney team will provide targeted support to the millions of Dropbox users in APAC and allow Dropbox to be even more accessible to the Australian businesses who have widely adopted the service, like Macquarie Group, Mirvac, and Atlassian.

“Given Atlassian’s fast-paced environment, and with our team distributed across three continents, it’s important that we can move quickly while staying on the same page. Dropbox for Business lets our designers have real-time access to files so we can work together more efficiently and get business done faster,” said Jurgen Spangl, head of design at Atlassian. “In terms of workflow, the team just knows that the most up-to-date files live in Dropbox. We’re pleased to have Dropbox as neighbours here in Sydney!”
