Posted on Nov 27 by Paperpile

Paperpile is a modern web application used by researchers and students 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.

We use JavaScript across all our service: The main web-app, our Chrome extension, Google Docs and Microsoft Word plugins, backend (Node.js, express),  our iOS and Android apps (React Native), and our upcoming desktop apps (Electron)

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


  • You have experience and a deep understanding of web technologies (HTML5, CSS3, REST APIs, ...)
  • You understand Javascript inside-out and are up-to-date with modern developments of the language (ES6).
  • You have experience with Node.js and feel home in the Node.js ecosystem (Babel, Jest, Yarn, ...).
  • You have developed complex apps with React/Redux (or with other frameworks and want to learn React).
  • You work independently and write clean, re-usable and testable code.

More useful experience (optional):

  • React Native
  • Native iOS or Android development
  • Electron
  • ElasticSearch
  • MongoDB
  • Background in research or academia
