Job Description

About Us

Paperpile was founded in 2012 by three computational biologists — Stefan, Greg and Andreas — who share a passion for exceptional software and scientific papers. Started during their time as active researchers at the European Bioinformatics Institute and MIT, Paperpile is now developed in the US, Canada, and Austria.

The goal of Paperpile is to radically simplify the workflow of collecting, managing and writing papers. At every step, Paperpile aims to provide a "just works" solution that eliminates any unnecessary complexity.

Our user base is growing fast and so is the team around it

  • 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.
