About the job:


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?

Fluency with at least one dialect of SQL.

Expertise in Scala, Java, or Python.

Desired Skills:

You have worked on and have knowledge of Streaming platforms, typically based around Kafka.
