By making it easy for anyone to publish books and documents on the web, we’ve assembled the web’s largest library of written works spanning everything from original novels to powerpoint presentations. Scribd 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 are working on a broad set of hard technical problems from crafting a beautiful mobile reading experience to creating smart recommendation algorithms, and always looking for engineers of many backgrounds to help us.
