Join our team

Who we are

We're building 'Google Docs for Science', making science and R&D faster, more open and more transparent by bringing the whole scientific process into the cloud, from idea to writing to review to publication. Overleaf has 750,000 users who've created more than 10 million documents, and is being used in hundreds of universities worldwide for teaching and research.

We're a London-based startup, supported by Digital Science and Bethnal Green Ventures, and founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication.

Our current openings are listed below, and we're always keen to hear from exceptional people who are passionate about what they do — just drop us a line at .

Job Openings

Full Stack Engineer

You'll be working closely with our team to build new and awesome ways for scientists to collaborate and communicate. We're looking for full stack engineers — your projects will span our database (PostgreSQL), web app (Ruby & Rails, Node.js), front end (Backbone, React, JavaScript) and infrastructure (Docker, Heroku, Linux on Amazon EC2 and GCP) layers. We also have projects for mobile, if you're into Android or iOS.

You're an independent thinker and fast learner. You're resourceful and knowledgeable, but you ask questions when you get stuck. You take pride in your work, and you ship it early and often, because you love to see it out there in the real world. You learn new programming languages and techniques for fun, and you contribute to open source.

If this sounds like you, send your CV, salary expectations, and a link to your profile on github/bitbucket to . We'll get in touch to arrange an interview, in person if possible, otherwise via Skype/Google Hangout.

This is an immediate vacancy for a permanent position with a two month probationary period. Working arrangements are flexible.
You can choose to join our office in London or work remotely.

We look forward to meeting you!


Flexible hours

Work from home when you feel like avoiding the London commute or leave early if you need to. As long as you get things done you can flex your time to suit you best.

Choose your own kit

MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide you with the equipment you need.

Digital Science

We're based in the Digital Science offices, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.

Awesome location

In the heart of London, and right next to King's Cross and St Pancras stations for excellent transport links.

Fresh fruit

Just that. Mmm.

Team lunches

We'll often grab a sandwich together, but the whole team also goes out for a weekly lunch to catch up outside of the office.
