Paperpile helps researchers to find, organize, read, and write academic papers.

In addition to the Paperpile app, we have recently introduced a new product BibGuru for students. We are signing up thousands of new students every day.


  • 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. As a remote-first company, we communicate with tools like Slack, Figma, and Notion 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 interact with them directly to understand how we can make their work more productive.


You will take responsibility for substantial parts of our codebase and develop and ship new features and products.

We use Typescript/JavaScript across all our product lines: web-apps, browser extensions, Google Docs and Microsoft Word plugins, server-side scripts, iOS and Android apps (React Native), and desktop app (Electron).
