When it comes to web development jobs, Dropbox definitely maintains a competitive edge regarding compensation. Box web developers earn an average salary of $154,000 per year, which is still about $30,000 more than the average tech salary for web developers of $123,000, according to Paysa. But Dropbox blows that number completely out of the water. Dropbox salaries for web developers average around $249,000 per year—nearly $100,000 more than what you can expect to earn at Box.
A good chunk of that gap comes from the difference in equity. At Box, annual equity equals out to about $45,000, whereas Dropbox offers $113,000. But, it’s not just the equity that puts Dropbox so far ahead. Though the base salaries are nearly the same at $110,000 (Box) and $113,000 (Dropbox), Box does not have an annual bonus plan for web developer jobs. Dropbox, on the other hand, offers an annual bonus around $23,000 per year.

It’s no secret that software engineers earn some of the best salaries in all of tech. So, let’s take a look at how compensation for this mission-critical job compares between the two cloud service giants:
Box Software Engineer Salary
Dropbox Software Engineer Salary
Once again, Dropbox comes out on top by nearly $100,000. The average software engineer at Box earns $262,000 per year, including a base salary of $149,000, an annual bonus of $32,000, and equity of $82,000 per year. Dropbox salaries for software engineers average around $360,000 per year, which includes a base salary of $163,000, an annual bonus of $29,000, and annual equity that actually exceeds the base salary: a whopping $168,000 per year.
While engineers have different career paths they can take, for those interested in leadership, an engineering manager position is a natural step. And while both companies definitely take care of their leadership with generous compensation plans, the difference between Box and Dropbox salaries for engineering managers really puts the nail in the coffin for Box.
$230,000 more per year is a huge difference and likely more than any engineering manager would be willing to consider. The average engineering manager at Box makes a base salary of $213,000 per year, with a $70,000 bonus, and $117,000 in equity. Dropbox, on the other hand, offers a base of $234,000 per year, with a $52,000 bonus, and an amazing $344,000 in annual equity. Which is why, when it comes to compensation, Dropbox is undoubtedly the winner. And as a result, it should come as no surprise that Dropbox currently holds the #13 position in Paysa’s CompanyRank (Box is in the #60 spot).
