At Scribd

Remote - US/Canada

At Scribd (pronounced “scribbed”), we believe reading is more important than ever. Join our cast of characters as we work to change the way the world reads by building the world’s largest and most fascinating digital library: giving subscribers access to a growing collection of ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, documents, Scribd Originals, and more. In addition to works from major publishers and top authors, our community includes over 1.5M subscribers in nearly every country worldwide. About the Web Development Team We’ve built a library of millions of books, audiobooks, magazine articles, sheet music collections, and user-uploaded documents. 90% of millions of active users discover Scribd and continue to engage with content and build their libraries using our website. This team works across the stack with a strong focus on front-end work. We’re looking for diverse, well-rounded, communicative engineers to help empower our readers to indulge their curiosities and expand their knowledge by building quality products and user experiences. Our projects tend to be 1-2 front-end engineers at a time, so confidence, accountability, and excellent communication skills are extremely important. This role will join the Web Subscriber UX team, which focuses on delivering product features that will improve our users' experience. The Role Full-cycle software development will be your primary function, but we'll expect you to contribute in a number of ways, including advising on others' technical design, reviewing code, participating in interviews, and mentoring less experienced engineers. When you are doing software development, you'll be doing more than just coding a ticket handed to you. You'll contribute to the code strategy and architecture, implementation, delivery, and operation of systems, end-to-end. You'll consider testability, upgradeability, scalability, and observability throughout the development process. You'll regularly partner with one or two engineers. Tech stack Our online applications use React, Redux, and server-side rendering using Hypernova on the frontend and Rails, MySQL on the backend. We use Sidekiq to run background jobs and Databricks environment for offline data processing.  Benefits, Perks, and Wellbeing at Scribd • Healthcare Benefits: Scribd pays 100% of employee’s Medical, Vision, and Dental premiums and 70% of dependents • Leaves: Paid parental leave, 100% company paid short-term/long-term disability plans and milestone Sabbaticals • 401k plan through Fidelity, plus company matching with no vesting period • Stock Options - every employee is an owner in Scribd!  • Generous Paid Time Off, Paid Holidays, Flexible Sick Time, Volunteer Day + office closure between Christmas Eve and New Years Day • Referral bonuses • Professional development: generous annual budget for our employees to attend conferences, classes, and other events • Company-wide Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion programs which include learning & development opportunities, employee resource groups, and hiring best practices. • Learning & Development and Coaching programs • Monthly Wellness, Connectivity & Comfort Benefit • Concern mental health digital platform • Work-life balance flexibility • Company events + Scribdchats • Free subscription to Scribd + gift memberships for friends & family Want to learn more?
