Paris majored in computer imaging and graphic design and minored in marketing and advertising. He took that knowledge to Pepsi and a consumer-facing finance platform in California, where he learned iOS development and discovered Scribd. He applied and was hired, and for his first fun project, he got to develop Scribd's main display options.
Paris takes the train to work every morning. He attends 11 AM stand-ups and sporadic meetings with Product, Design, and Developer Teams to identify product performance goals before shifting into crunch mode at his stand-up desk. Paris combines brainpower with the Server Teams to make Scribd’s mobile apps fast, responsive, and compatible.
