THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED About Scribd
Scribd is a YCombinator startup based in San Francisco. Our vision is at the intersection of publishing and technology, bringing innovation to one of the world's oldest industries. We're already on our way as a top 100 site on the web with over 100 million users, but the journey is only 1% finished, and we're looking for talented technologists of all kinds to take Scribd to the next level.
There is a lot of deep technology operating behind the scenes at Scribd. We have scaled the world's second largest ruby on rails site, invented the first HTML5 document reader, and done original work on textual analysis. Scribd is a very engineering-driven company: as an engineer here you will have a lot of responsibility to choose the projects you work on and to define the way they get built. And because we have a large userbase and deploy new code daily, your work will likely be used by millions of people on your first week.
Scribd has a unique company culture that combines a laid-back atmosphere (we have company go-karts and an office zipline) with a total focus on doing great engineering - the best way to experience it is really to read through our jobs page and watch our infamous go-kart racing video.
