Ready to work together?

Scroll is a mission-driven company enabling frictionless access to a thriving free press. We’re backed by some of the top VCs and media companies in the world, including the New York Times, News Corp and Axel Springer. If you’re interested in working on something important with great people then read on!

Scroll has offices in NYC and Portland, Oregon and we encourage travel between them both. Sometimes you want to be working at the pace of New York City, and sometimes you want to go hiking in the Pacific Northwest after work. So do we.

Every employee is considered an owner of the company with competitive salary and equity packages. Moreover, we believe that access to healthcare is a fundamental right, but until the government agrees, we pay 90% of health and dental insurance costs for employees and their families.

We’re a startup, with all the speed and excitement that that brings, but we’re a startup where many people have kids, so we try to find a good work-life balance. If you’re happy at home, then you’re going to be happier at work and more productive.

As a consumer product, we're especially dedicated to building a diverse team that reflects the audience we’re trying to serve. Sometimes, humility can prevent great people from applying to great jobs. If you’re not sure about your fit, but one of our open roles sounds like a job you would love to do, please do get in touch.
