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 1.5M subscribers in nearly every country worldwide.
Scribd’s Content Operations team is accountable for tracking and diagnosing all products available from our publishing partners so that the maximum amount of content is available to our subscribers. We are looking for a well-organized, self-sustaining, and detail-oriented person who is adept at multitasking and able to solve problems in real-time. This high-energy person will leverage their solid SQL skills to maintain and improve the set of tables we use to perform our work. They will also oversee answering complex data analysis questions and will be adept at data visualizations and representation.
Strong communication skills, both written and verbal, are a must. Building and maintaining relationships throughout the company with both business and engineering teams will also be a key aspect of the role, in addition to codifying and sharing knowledge. Exposure to client partners is possible but will probably be kept to a minimum.
This is a remote position and is available in the US (any of the following states: AZ, CA, CO, DE, DC, FL, HI, IA, MO, NJ, NY, OH, OR, TX, WA, MA, VT) or Canada.

- Review and catalog exceptions in Scribd’s content-ingestion and content-related back-end systems and admin tools related to these systems.
- Collaborate with front-end, back-end, and data engineers, as well as multiple business teams.
- Perform sophisticated data analysis using Scribd’s data warehouse and a combination of SQL, Spark, Ruby, and other tools.
- Stays current with national and international developments related to data analysis in publishing.
- 4 year degree or equivalent work experience
- Relevant Master’s degree a plus
- 3-5+ years experience developing and managing data from multiple sources for conducting data analysis
- Working knowledge of software solutions that manage data (e.g., Tableau, Looker, Databricks)
