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. Last year we hit 1M paying subscribers (https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/28/scribd-1-million-subscribe...). Earlier this 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.
We are hiring software engineers across the board (see https://www.scribd.com/careers), including:
* The Payments team is looking for mid-level to senior engineers to help us build smart payment systems. Our mission is to grow revenue with sophisticated, reliable and secure international payments. The Payments team works on exciting projects that cover Product, Infrastructure, Finance. We are in an interesting phase of applying machine learning to optimize authorization rates and personalizing user's payment experience. We are hiring for two positions: https://jobs.lever.co/scribd/9a29a357-4a39-47f0-a79a-b4c77b1... and https://jobs.lever.co/scribd/5743db19-7a5e-4875-af2f-1be8def...
* Technical Lead Manager for SlideShare: we are looking for a strong tech lead with some engineering management experience (or interest to get into management) to lead a small, fast moving team that takes ownership of SlideShare and works on its roadmap to make SlideShare shine.

* The Data Engineering team is in need of Senior Engineers onsite in our San Francisco office, onsite in our Toronto office, or remote within the United States. Our mission is to delivery analytical and behavior datasets to our internal customers. We work with very large datasets and ensure we can build them to be reliable, scalable and maintainable and support numerous teams within Scribd, for example Business Analytics and Data Science just to name a couple. We are looking for folks who have a passion for developing data pipelines on modern data engineering platforms. Experience with streaming technologies and Spark are a strong plus. https://jobs.lever.co/scribd/46a9ef46-d214-483d-be09-f811c8b...
