At Scribd (pronounced “scribbed”), our mission is to spark human curiosity. Join our team as we create a world of  stories and knowledge, democratize the exchange of ideas and information, and empower collective expertise through our three products: Everand, Scribd, and Slideshare. 

We support a culture where our employees can be real and be bold; where we debate and commit as we embrace plot twists; and where every employee is empowered to take action as we prioritize the customer.

We love collaborating and investing time in our Scribd community, and we create intentional in-person moments with each other to build culture and connection. And, it is through our flexible work benefit – Scribd Flex – that we enable employees, in partnership with their manager, to choose the work-style that best suits their individual needs and preferences.

About the Team:
The Discovery Pillar is revolutionizing the discovery and consumption experiences with the power of generative AI across all three Scribd brands. Our mission is to create a world-class experience for helping customers find content they are interested in and building a reading habit. 

We have two key competitive advantages that enable us to revolutionize the field of natural language processing. Firstly, we have one of the largest document corpuses in the world, which provides us with an unprecedented amount of data to train our models on. Secondly, we have millions of users around the world that interact with our content, which improves the overall experience for each customer. 

Our culture of innovation and collaboration ensures we deliver cutting-edge products that meet the evolving needs of our customers. We leverage our knowledge, expertise, and machine learning platform to quickly deploy new experiences powered by AI, providing significant value to our customers. Lastly, we do not just ship AI products in isolation; we deliver holistic customer solutions in partnership with the broader company.
