Help us build and grow Paperpile

Work on a product used and loved by thousands of researchers worldwide

Paperpile is a modern web application to manage and write academic papers. We are a small, distributed team in the US and Europe. Our user-base is growing and so is the team around it.

  • As part of a small team everything you do matters. You only work on stuff that has a direct big impact on the product and our customers.
  • Work from anywhere on your own schedule. We communicate with tools like Slack, Trello and Hangouts to move our product forward fast.
  • Work with an interesting and diverse community of academics. Our customers use Paperpile to study climate change, cancer or medieval history. You talk to them every day to understand how we can make their work more productive.
