Scribd

Posted on: 20 Feb 2014

About Us:
Scribd is a technology company in San Francisco building the world's online library. Scribd has raised $26M, is profitable, and is one of the largest sites on the web, but it is still run by a comparatively small team and still in the very early stages of achieving our vision for what the library of the future could be. We recently launched a subscription service that is widely being called the first "Netflix for books" and we're very excited about it.

Scribd has a unique company culture that combines a fun-loving atmosphere with a phenomenal and creative team work environment. That said, the coolest stuff that we're doing we haven't yet announced, so you'll need to talk to us to find out what we're up to.
