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. Beginning of this year we hit 1M paying subscribers (https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/28/scribd-1-million-subscribe...)! We are one of the oldest YC startups (YC '06), operating one of the largest Ruby on Rails sites.
In Amsterdam we are hiring backend software engineers with solid experience in building, running and scaling out cloud-native microservices (preferably in Ruby and/or Go). We value a hacker mindset, clean coding and a natural aversion to complexity, or if you're a glass-half-empty person: an affinity for simplicity.
We're also looking for a site reliability engineer to help us out in the cloud.
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.
We have hired many people from these threads. If you have questions you can reach out to me directly at nickyp at scribd.com (I'm the Engineering Manager of the Core Services team and happy to answer questions related to the role).
