Role Description

The Senior Analyst, focused on Workforce Planning, will provide financial partnership to the Dropbox People team and manage workforce items as they relate to our financial outcomes and objectives. This cross-functional role provides the opportunity to act as a primary business partner for the People Team - driving budgeting, forecasting and expense tracking - while also allowing vast exposure to company-wide expense areas such as compensation forecasting, location strategy and overall company headcount management. The ideal candidate has a strong attention to detail, while still being able to understand the big picture, a penchant for process improvement, and a desire to learn and grow.


  • Provide day-to-day business partnering support for the People Team organization, including Budget management and spend approval, monthly variance reporting, and strategic guidance to encourage budget utilization and accuracy.
  • Drive the monthly, quarterly, and annual forecast for the People Team — gathering budget inputs and helping budget owners meet their strategic goals within their budget envelope.
  • Assist with global Workforce Management and Planning initiatives, including managing global headcount reporting (monthly and quarterly), supporting Location Strategy modeling, and providing ad-hoc Headcount modeling and reporting as needed.
  • Assist with Compensation assumptions, reporting, and modeling — supporting the monthly tracking and forecasting of SBC, Equity, and cash compensation. Ensure FP&A assumptions for salary, bonus, and SBC are accurate ahead of each forecast cycle.
  • Support ad-hoc FP&A projects and deliverables, including support of short- and long-range Planning cycles.


  • 5+ years of progressive experience in a financial analyst role
  • Robust analytical and modeling skills with a strong attention to detail
  • Experience with budgeting, forecasting, month end close and variance analysis; either through direct business partnership experience or experience with these responsibilities from a corporate consolidation perspective
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience managing headcount-related expenses (managing SBC expenses is a big plus)
  • Knowledge of financial systems, such as Oracle

Additional Perks + Benefits

In order to be successful in our Virtual First environment we needed to make changes that would allow employees to have more control over both where and how they work. Therefore, we embrace “non-linear workdays” with defined core collaboration hours that overlap across time zones. Beyond that, we encourage employees to design their own schedules to balance collaboration with needs for individual focus. We’ve also moved from “all day syncs” to an “async by default” culture, reserving meetings for discussion, debate, and decision-making, and handling all other work in our deep focus hours.
