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.

Open positions

Senior Software Engineer (NYC or Portland, OR)

Scroll's engineering team is solving a broad, constantly-evolving range of technical problems. And with only four people, we've gotten pretty far in a year and a half—over 400 qps of live traffic on a handful of JVMs on Container Engine, JavaScript embedded in some of the world's largest websites, a scalable data warehouse on Google Cloud, rich user- and publisher- facing webapps in React, native apps in a mix of native code and React Native, and integration libraries for several common publisher technologies.

Our secret is pretty simple: hire people who bring an area of expertise but are excited to learn new things and work across the stack, then never stop trying to improve our efficiency and versatility. We believe that smart, inquisitive, proactive people with the right foundation are more nimble than a team of siloed specialists. Great senior engineers can help make the right decisions in their domain, but they can also contribute to any technical discussion, pitch in where needed, or implement an idea for a feature on their own, front-to-back.

Right now, Scroll is looking for engineers who have several years or more of industry experience and bring depth in any of: frontend, devops, data pipelines, Android, or iOS. Depth to us is not just knowing how to use these technologies, but some understanding of how they work under the hood and why.

Previous experience at large consumer-facing companies, CS degrees, and app or website side projects are all helpful but definitely not required.

If this sounds even a little like you and you want to work with an incredible team on problems that have a major impact on the future of a free press and a usable web, reach out!
