Scribd is a reading subscription that gives you access to the best books, audiobooks, magazines, and more. Our mission is to re-imagine the way the world reads.
Our team is looking for smart engineers to work on our recommendation and search systems. You should have a strong machine learning background with experience in search or recommendations with a production system or a MS/PHD in a related field. Scala/Spark and SQL experience is a plus. We are also looking for senior Rails engineers.
We are a small team which means you can have a ton of impact and bring in your own ideas. We work on an ambitious project to organize all the books in the world and use it to take book discovery to the next level.
Scribd has a very friendly, engineering-driven company culture, is profitable, and well funded. We are ambitious but at the same time we value a good work life balance. Stack: Ruby on Rails (we are one of the largest Rails sites), Go, MySQL, Redis, Kafka, Spark (Scala). But we care way more about your personality and hacking skills than what languages you've used so far.
