Background. Spun out of CERN by a group of astrophysicists, Authorea aims to be a paradigm shift in how researchers communicate their research. Our team is small but ambitious and our tool is already being used at all 100 of the top 100 (Leiden Ranking) research universities. We also just closed a substantial funding round with brand-name VCs.
Why Authorea. We are a close group of researchers, programmers, developers, and product builders who are trying to fix some enormous fundamental problems in research. We're working in five key areas to help researchers: writing, citing, collaborating, hosting, and publishing research. Our goal is to advance substantially the pace of scientific innovation while laying waste to outdated and harmful things like paywalls and research that can't be reproduced.
Responsibilities. Authorea is a small team of 10 people working day and night to build the future of research. We only hire people with passion, subject matter expertise, and with little need for day-to-day guidance. We are a team building a product together, and you should be comfortable owning critical projects and helping us push our product development into light speed.
