La Ville Lumière, here we come. We’re happy to announce the opening of our Paris office, which joins Dublin and London as our third European location. Our new Paris team, led by Philippe Plichon, is putting down roots in the city’s thriving tech neighborhood, “Silicon Sentier.” We’ve seen huge success in France, so Paris is a natural choice for us. The number of Dropbox users in France has doubled over the past two years, now accounting for one out of every five French Internet users. The Paris-based developers of Genius Scan, Stupeflix, and Polabox have also taken to Dropbox, building integrations into their popular apps. And more French companies are choosing Dropbox for Business every day to help them work smarter. Here are just a few:
- Leading media group Lagardère Group uses Dropbox for Business across its organization to share large files, streamline collaboration, and provide mobile access to information.
- Innovative ridesharing community BlaBlaCar is scaling its technology infrastructure during a period of rapid growth with Dropbox for Business.
- Naviland Cargo, a subsidiary of national railway operator SNCF, accesses up-to-date files while on board trains and reports incidents using Dropbox for Business.
And we’re just getting started. In the next three years, we expect over 2.5 million French businesses to be using at least one cloud service. We’re excited to put Dropbox for Business at the top of their lists. If you’re interested in helping us bring Dropbox to more people in France and across Europe, check out our Paris jobs page.
