Box Case Study
Box is the premier cloud content management and file sharing service for business. The company started in 2005, and today has more than 85,000 clients, 69% of which are Fortune 500 companies like IBM, GE, and Proctor & Gamble. Within the last decade, the company has grown to 1,400 employees and moved headquarters to Redwood City, CA, to accommodate for a larger team and for future growth. As Box continues to grow, it is committed to building a more diverse and inclusive team.
Box.org began as a philanthropic supporter of the Genesys Works program and expanded their support of the program when Box’s IT Director, Jason Bergado, learned of the opportunity to host Genesys Works young professionals. Jason, along with the Box.org team and Box Chief Information Officer Paul Chapman, championed the integration of the Genesys Works program into the company in 2017.
Meet Roy Nguyen
Roy interned for the IT department at Box while he was a senior at Lincoln High School in San Jose.
“Roy was always very prepared, raised his hand, and always wanted to do 10X. He brought fire and passion that spread across the team,” Jason explained.
Roy provides backfill and support to the IT department at Box. He supports Box’s end users, fixing computers when they’re broken or trouble-shooting software and applications. He also ensures inventory and peripherals are prepped and primed for end users and customers. This experience is solidifying the knowledge he gained through Genesys Works’ summer training and the confidence to pursue his dreams of becoming an IT professional.
“I am setting a foundation for an IT career with this role at Box,” Roy said. “This role shows I’m motivated, have experience and am ready for challenges.”
