Scribd | Software Engineers | San Francisco, Toronto, Amsterdam | ONSITE or REMOTE | VISA

Scribd is a reading subscription that gives you access to the best books, audiobooks, magazines, and more. Our mission is to change how the world reads. In 2019 we hit 1M paying subscribers (https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/28/scribd-1-million-subscribe...). Last year we acquired SlideShare (https://techcrunch.com/2020/08/11/scribd-acquires-slideshare...). We are one of the oldest YC startups (YC ’06), operating one of the largest Ruby on Rails sites.

Scribd has a very friendly, engineering-driven company culture with competitive salary and great benefits. We are ambitious but at the same time we value a good work life balance. In general we care way more about your personality, communication, and hacking skills than what languages and technologies you’ve used so far.
