Paris’ Story
Fun Things First
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.

“To be successful at Scribd, the most important thing is having a sense of humor. There are a lot of difficult projects that come up, but if you can laugh it off, you can keep striving on.”

“We have a lot of cross-team functionality, so we need people that will speak up if they have a strong opinion—and step up to prove it.”
