    12 Ways to Effortlessly Surprise Your Friends and Co-Workers
    Dropbox founders Arash Ferdowsi and Drew Houston.

    Dropbox is the latest Bay Area tech company to seek to hire a Head of Diversity.

    "In this role, you’ll develop specific strategies to embed diversity and inclusion into Dropbox’s day-to-day operations, practices, processes and employee development," reads a job listing posted on Aug. 5.

    According to International Business Times, this new position was advertised just a month after a former Dropbox employee made headlines for speaking out about her negative experiences working at the company as a black woman.

    This included being frequently mistaken for one of the "few other" black women there and hearing from one co-worker following the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson that "Black people get shot and killed every day — it's not that big of a deal."

    Other jobs currently open in Dropbox's San Francisco office include a diversity sourcer — and a head pastry chef.
