"Terrific partner that has been instrumental in helping us scale from an MVP to series A"
Very well-vetted, high-quality candidates, ensure that I don't waste time interviewing unqualified people. They also make payroll a breeze and allow us to offer competitive benefits packages and provide hardware to our employees. They help find solutions that work for you rather than just making up the numbers and building a funnel.

"Took all the hassle out of finding great talent"
Revelo manages the entire process for you. They found candidates; responded and adjusted their search based on my feedback; scheduled interviews; etc. After spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find the talent we needed in-house -- and honestly not doing a great job of it -- they got us a developer we're thrilled with.

"Helped us find engineers quickly - great communication with our team"
The speed at which they were able to source engineers. We were able to find fullstack engineers that will stay with our company just like regular full-time employees. They come at a competitive price-point compared to other agencies.

Tips for Hiring Dropbox developers

Started in 2007 as a startup company by MIT students Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, Dropbox is a file-hosting service and cloud storage platform. It is one of the oldest file-hosting platforms and has remained popular despite competition. Dropbox is more than a file-sharing service; it also offers developers an application programming interface (API) service and DBX platform for creating powerful applications.

Businesses in the cloud environment can benefit from hiring Dropbox developers who can manage and control their programming content and extend the platform's powerful capabilities in innovative ways. However, with many companies competing for top tech talent, it can be challenging to find and hire Dropbox developers.

This article will cover the basics of Dropbox development, what to expect from a developer, how to attract the best talent to your team, and how to streamline the hiring process with Revelo’s tech platform.

What Is Dropbox Development?

Dropbox development involves using Dropbox APIs and the DBX platform to create, build, and implement powerful applications. The Dropbox DBX platform has many useful tools, including OAuth, extensions, error handling, webhooks, and more. It is supplemented with guides and documentation to help developers in their work.

Dropbox development can be used alongside JavaScript, HTML, Python, .NET, and Swift to create features and applications. There are various ways to implement Dropbox development, including creating photo galleries from scratch, using webhooks to transform markdown files to HTML, simplifying file collection, engaging in performant uploading, creating blogging platforms, and more.

Using Dropbox’s original feature of hosting files also allows developers to easily upload and share files.

What Does a Dropbox Developer Do?

The responsibilities of a Dropbox developer depend on the industry, company, and project at hand. However, there are a few daily tasks that most Dropbox developers have in common, including the following:

  • Designing, building, implementing, and maintaining applications on the front and back end
  • Spearheading and overseeing development teams and projects
  • Optimizing performance and user experience
  • Defining application requirements
  • Monitoring team audits using Events APIs

These responsibilities may also vary depending on seniority level. For example, a junior-level developer would be least likely to oversee development teams and projects, while it can be expected of a senior-level developer.

Dropbox Developer Salary

According to Glassdoor, the annual salary for mid-level Dropbox developers with four to six years of experience living in the U.S. is $224,468. Compensation can vary depending on several factors, such as location, industry, education, and experience.

While developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they usually earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo provides a cost-effective solution while offering highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.

How to Write a Job Description for Dropbox Developers

The perfect job description is essential to finding and hiring the best talent. Your job description should be concise and straightforward, with little to no room for confusion. Include basics such as the job title, role, and working days and hours, and then go in-depth into areas such as qualifications and skills. Areas include:

  • Required qualifications & experience: Requirements may include a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science or another relevant field or industry experience of 5+ years.
  • Desired skills and traits: Include both technical and soft skills. For example, a Dropbox developer should be well-versed in HTML and JavaScript and have excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Job responsibilities: Be as thorough as possible to avoid confusion about what your new hire will do in their day-to-day tasks.
  • Benefits: The better the benefits, the more you'll attract candidates. Examples include 401(k)s, pension plans, vacation and sick days, and flexible working hours.

While these areas are great starting points, you should tailor your job description to your company and project needs. Consider the seniority level that your project requires. If your project is complex and requires more expertise, hire a senior-level developer. Alternatively, you can hire a junior-level developer if your project can accommodate fewer years of experience.

Interview Questions for Dropbox Developers

Before you start scheduling interviews, compile a list of important questions. These should cover areas ranging from background information, such as work experience and work ethic, to development questions assessing a candidate’s knowledge and problem-solving capabilities. Below are some examples of questions you can ask.

What makes Dropbox better than other file-hosting and cloud services?

This question can help you determine how much a candidate knows about Dropbox and why they prefer it over other platforms. Your candidates should explain what Dropbox is and how it differs from the competition. They should also provide examples of its features, such as free storage, encryption security, and backing up data with expiration dates that allow files and data to expire after a set time.

How do you determine if two binary trees are identical?

This question will allow you to further gauge your candidate’s knowledge of Dropbox development. Trees are a critical Dropbox development feature, so your candidate should be able to explain how to tell if two binary trees are identical. Examples include if their root nodes have the same value and if their left or right subtrees are the same.

How do you remove duplicates from an array?

Duplicates should be removed to optimize performance and reliability. Your candidate should be able to explain and even complete a test on eliminating duplicates. This question will help you determine how well your candidates can troubleshoot and resolve issues.

These are great beginner questions, but you should also have more in-depth ones that test your candidate’s knowledge and are tailored to specific seniority levels. When you invite a candidate back for a second interview, consider administering tests to assess their technological skills.
