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 1.9 M subscribers in nearly every country worldwide.
Have you heard about our future of work program, Scribd Flex? As a key principle, we embrace flexibility and allow employees, in partnership with their manager, to choose the work-style that best suits their individual needs and preferences. And, we create intentional in-person moments with each other that build culture and connection.
About the Go-To-Market Team
Scribd's Go-To-Market (GTM) team is a cross-functional group tackling some of our most critical product challenges. Our work spans multiple web and mobile applications, bridging the gap between product development and customer acquisition. We're collaborating with partner teams enterprise-wide to ensure our product delights audiences, generates buzz, and exceeds stakeholder expectations.
As a GTM Staff Front-end Engineer
As a Staff Front-end Engineer on the GTM team, you'll architect and implement critical user flows. You'll collaborate with back-end and machine learning engineers to build the systems powering those flows, as well – even diving into some application API or back-end code when needed.
As a seasoned engineering leader, you'll mentor and grow your fellow engineers through collaboration, pair programming, rubber-ducking sessions, and constructive code reviews. You'll lead from the front, as well, shipping code that meets project goals while considering testability, upgradeability, scalability, and observability to enable incremental improvement.
