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...](https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/28/scribd-1-million-subscribers/)). Last year we acquired SlideShare ([https://techcrunch.com/2020/08/11/scribd-acquires-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.
