We believe simple is magic, and business software should be elegant and intuitive—your tools for work should work for you.

We believe joy is the engine that powers all the best ideas. So we’re designing a way of working that makes space for it, removing the distractions, interruptions, and frustrations that get in the way.

We believe it’s important to connect all the dots. We design Dropbox to seamlessly integrate with the tools you already use, so everything—and everyone—plays well together.
