**What We Do**\n\nOverleaf is a social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists โ€” like Google Docs for Science. We have over eight million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.\n\n**Who We Are**\n\nOverleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of about forty based mainly in the UK, Europe, the US and Canada. We were recently recognised as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses and as the Best SaaS for Nonprofits or Education in the 2020 SaaS Awards Program. Our vision is to be the go-to place for writing scientific documents.\n\n**How We Work**\n\nOverleaf is remote-first โ€” all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office in Farringdon for those in the London area, and when the pandemic settles down we'll again get the whole team together in London a few times a year for face-to-face time.\n\nWe encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pmโ€“5pm UK time, during which our development and product teams have 10โ€“15 minute daily standup calls.\n\nWe always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run surveys and user interviews on a weekly basis to inform our Product Discovery process.\n\nWe have a flexible roadmap that we review quarterly, which includes regular user-facing releases. Our Product team works closely with everyone in the company, from Support, to Finance and Marketing to understand every aspect of how we can best deliver value to our users. Our roadmap also includes initiatives driven by staff and quarterly hackathons to keep our learning fresh.\n\n**About This Role**\n\nAs we expand, we are shaping our product team to better address user needs within specific areas of the product (e.g. onboarding and acquisition, premium features and retention). We are now looking to hire an enthusiastic Product Manager to join one of our new multidisciplinary teams. You will take ownership of researching, understanding and delivering value for our more advanced LaTeX users and their workflows across our hosted SaaS and on-premise solutions. You will shape up your own roadmap to discover and address their needs, as well as define how to measure success. You will also lead on projects related to your area of expertise from start to finish. This will usually involve:\n\nWork with our UX team to:\n\n- Carry out primary research to understand your users, their pain points and identify opportunities to address them.\n- Nurture and grow our rich database of user insights, mining data when needed and present it to stakeholders so that they can make informed decisions.\n- Develop new strategies for regularly monitoring and collecting user feedback.\n- Based on research insights, formulate hypotheses to be tested with a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods.\n\nOnce we get to developing solutions, working closely with the development team and other stakeholders to:\n- Shape a vision, defining the problem and align the team with clear objectives and user stories.\n- Represent the needs of the user and other stakeholders to the engineering team throughout the process. Be confident in conveying user needs with tangible examples from user research.\n- Play a lead role in the delivery process from start to finish, working closely with designers and engineering to solve issues that arise as we iterate on releases.\n- Monitor the impact of new features and releases, to determine if they achieved the goals set out for them at the start.\n- Be part of planning sessions with your team to help them prioritise and work efficiently.\n\nWorking closely with internal teams (Sales & Marketing, Support, Business) to:\n- Clearly communicate our roadmap and product changes in advance of their launch.\n- Understand and address their needs, including any obstacles they may have in serving customers.\n- Help them access and understand product information, dependencies and data that they need to do their job well.\n- Ask for input and insights from their perspective to help us improve our product on an ongoing basis.\n\nThis year, we are excited to be working on:\n\n- Launching a new analytics system and team to generate insights into our B2C funnel and help us understand our users better, while respecting their privacy.\n- Enhancing the collaboration experience on our product to make it even more compelling for individual users and teams.\n- Delivering a new UI to help users troubleshoot their LaTeX compilation errors more effectively and help them publish their work more quickly.\n- Revamping our template gallery to help users find what they need to produce the best documents.\n\nHere is an example of a feature that we launched recently to help users navigate their projects more easily: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/new-feature-file-outline-is-now-available-on-overleaf\n\nHere is an example of a recent paper we presented at the SIGCHI conference, which won a best paper award: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/congratulations-to-paulo-john-and-sven-best-case-study-at-acm-chi2021\n\nAnd here's a post about reaching 8 million users: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/eight-million-users\n\n**Who you are**\n\n- Empathetic. You are curious about people and their stories, you could spend hours talking to customers and stakeholders and never get bored.\n- Technical. You are familiar with LaTeX or willing to learn about LaTeX and its use within academia and industry.\n- Tech-savvy. You are not a developer, but you are familiar with a number of technologies across the tech stack.\n- Data-driven. You base your decisions on observations and data thatโ€™s available to you. Whether itโ€™s from a survey, a database or a user interview, you are comfortable reading insights and presenting them to your stakeholders.\n- Self-motivated. You are a natural at making plans, keeping people aligned along the way and thrive when you see a vision come to life.\n- Collaborative. You listen, help and understand others. You are an independent thinker while remaining a great team player.\n\n**Desired, but not required**\n\n- Familiarity with Juypter notebooks, R or similar technology in an academic environment\n- A technical background or experience of working in technical environments\n\n**How We Hire**\n\nThe stages in our hiring process are typically:\n\n- We ask you to submit a CV and a cover letter stating why you would like to work for Overleaf.\n- We will aim to update you on the status of your application within two weeks from when we receive it.\n- We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.\n- We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically followed or combined with a practical assignment. For the practical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or doing an exercise during the interview, if you prefer. The exercises are practical in nature, and you can use Google, etc., and ask us questions.\n- We may ask you to attend a second, shorter, interview with our Founders.\n- We'll make an offer. We usually interview in batches, so there may be a short delay while we interview other candidates, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.\n\nIf you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.\n\n**Requirements**\n\nWe require that you:\n\n- Have a minimum of 2โ€“3 years of relevant experience.\n- Will work for us full time (or nearly full time).\n- Will usually be available in our core hours, 2pmโ€“5pm UK time.\n- Are based in the UK, Europe, US or Canada.\n\nExperience with the technologies we use is always a plus, but you don't need to know them all; your ability to learn is much more important to us.\n\n**Benefits**\n- Remote and flexible working.\n- Salary ยฃ40kโ€“ยฃ70k per year depending on experience.\n- You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.\n- We're substantially (around 80%) open source, so your work will often be on open source.\n- We're backed by Bethnal Green Ventures (https://bethnalgreenventures.com/) and Digital Science (https://www.digital-science.com/), through which we're part of a wider community of startups in science, health and ed-tech.\n- Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.\n- You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide what you need.\n- We provide a training budget; many of our staff choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.\n- We run a biweekly internal seminar series (show and tell) with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.\n\nWe are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. \n\nBe sure to mention the words **TIMBER ENHANCE CONNECT** when applying to show you read the job post completely. This is a beta feature to avoid spam applicants. Companies can search these words to find applicants that read this and see they're human.\n\n \n\n#Salary and compensation\n $50,000 — $100,000/year\n \n\n#Location\nUK, Europe, US or Canada

Now we are a team of about forty based mainly in the UK, Europe, the US and Canada. We were recently recognised as one of the [UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses](https://www.overleaf.com/blog/overleaf-recognized-as-one-of-the-uks-top-100-fastest-growing-businesses) and as the [Best SaaS for Nonprofits or Education](https://www.overleaf.com/blog/overleaf-named-2020-saas-awards-winner) in the 2020 SaaS Awards Program. Our vision is to be the go-to place for writing scientific documents.\n\n# How we work\nOverleaf is (and was, even before the pandemic) remote-first โ€” all founders and staff work remotely.

Our roadmap also includes initiatives driven by staff and quarterly hackathons to keep our learning fresh.\n\n# About this role\nAt Overleaf, we are proud to have a very engaged community of users, and their feedback is essential to us as we continue to evolve the platform. We are looking for a UX designer who has experience working directly with users and a keen interest in user research. You will be key in helping us discover opportunities and pain-points through research and analytics; you will craft user experiences that help our users get their work done, while continuously assessing and iterating on Overleaf.\n\nYou will have autonomy in developing your designs, from concept to execution, but you wonโ€™t be alone. You will be part of a cross-functional team, collaborating with product managers that will help you understand where your work fits in our roadmap and with developers that will help you make your design come to life.\n\nThis year, we are excited to be working on:\n\n* Adding support to multiple-window workflows, allowing users to be more productive and take advantage of extra screen real estate.\n* Creating a palette for symbols (just like an emoji picker, but for scientific typesetting).\n* Delivering a new UI to help users troubleshoot their LaTeX compilation errors more effectively and help them publish their work more quickly.\n* Launching a new analytics system and team to generate insights into our B2C funnel and help us understand our users better, while respecting their privacy.\n* Enhance the collaboration experience on our product to make it even more compelling for teams.\n* Revamping our template gallery to help users find what they need to produce the best documents.\n* \nHere is an example of a feature that we launched recently to help users navigate their projects more easily: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/new-feature-file-outline-is-now-available-on-overleaf\n\n# What we're looking for\n* Experience designing for the web. We donโ€™t expect you to code but, as a designer, we expect you to be familiar with the media you design for, as well as its constraints. You should be able to design and prototype solutions (with various degrees of fidelity) based on user research, and to iterate based on feedback and collaboration with stakeholders (e.g. product managers and developers).\n* Strong understanding and experience doing user research. You base your design decisions on a deep understanding of your usersโ€™ needs. You are able to script and conduct interviews; you are able to design and analyse surveys; you are able to run a usability test.\n* Ideally, youโ€™ll have some experience (or interest) in developing or maintaining a design system or style guide. Similarly, some experience (or interest) in collaborating with and steering graphic designers (and/or doing some graphic design yourself) would be valuable too, as would a keen eye for typography (as LaTeX is all about excellent typesetting). Finally, some familiarity with publishing, the scholarly market and scientific research would help you better understand the sector Overleaf operates in.\n\n# How we Hire\nThe stages in our hiring process are typically:\n\n1. You submit your application (please provide a cover letter and a link to your portfolio if you have one).\n2. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within two weeks from when we receive it.\n3.

## What We Do\n\nOverleaf is a startup and social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists โ€” like Google Docs for Science. We have over six million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real-time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.\n\n## Who We Are\n\nOverleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of about forty with fifteen developers, based mainly in and around the UK and in the US. We were recently recognised as one of the [UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses](https://www.overleaf.com/blog/overleaf-recognized-as-one-of-the-uks-top-100-fastest-growing-businesses) and as the [Best SaaS for Nonprofits or Education](https://www.overleaf.com/blog/overleaf-named-2020-saas-awards-winner) in the 2020 SaaS Awards Program.\n\n## Our Tech\n\nOverleaf is based on open source software, and most of our product code is itself open source. You can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/overleaf/overleaf (note: most activity is in the repos linked from there).\n\nWe run a mainly Node.js back end using MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Redis. We use a microservices architecture, with about a dozen services. On the front end, we mainly use Angular v1 and are incrementally migrating to React.\n\nWe're hosted on Google Cloud Platform using Google Kubernetes Engine. We use Docker to manage our development environments. We support continuous delivery and typically deploy at least a few times a day (less on Fridays).\n\n## How We Work\n\nOverleaf is remote-first --- all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office in Farringdon for those in the London area, and when the pandemic settles down we'll again get the whole team together in London a few times a year for face-to-face time.\n\nWe encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pmโ€“5pm UK time, during which our development teams have 10โ€“15 minute daily standup calls. We have few standing meetings for developers, but we do many smaller video or voice calls for pairing or within teams.\n\nWe always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews.\n\nWe organize our work with Kanban. We use GitHub pull requests for each feature with code review to share knowledge and best practices (and catch bugs). We test thoroughly with automated unit and acceptance tests, supported by continuous integration (CI). We're also fans of linting to minimise bike-shedding (and to catch bugs).\n\n## About This Role\n\nWe plan to add two developers to our team, both with a backend focus. Experience with some of Node.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis or Kubernetes is desirable. We are also particularly interested in meeting you if:\n\n- you'd be interested in taking up a team lead role in the not too distant future, or\n- you have experience with setting up data pipelines for web analytics and/or business intelligence.\n\nKey projects on our road map this year include:\n\n- Improve our B2C conversion metrics and monitoring โ€” we'll be setting up a new web analytics system to generate insights we need while continuing to respect user privacy\n- Consolidate our two project history systems โ€” we currently have two from our integration with ShareLaTeX in 2017, each with hundreds of TB to be consolidated\n- Make our project PDF preview faster and less bandwidth hungry โ€” we have prototypes showing big wins that now need productionizing\n\nHere are some examples of projects (large and small) we've recently completed:\n\n- https://www.overleaf.com/blog/new-feature-file-outline-is-now-available-on-overleaf\n- https://www.overleaf.com/blog/new-feature-transfer-project-ownership-on-overleaf\n- https://www.overleaf.com/blog/523-a-data-driven-approach-to-latex-autocomplete\n\nIn the longer term, we are planning projects around improved collaboration features for teams, improvements to our rich text mode, and more.\n\n## How We Hire\n\nThe stages in our hiring process are typically:\n\n1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within 14 days from when we receive it.\n\n2. We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.\n\n3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically two hours long. The first hour is discussion, and the second hour is technical. For the technical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or solving a problem in the interview, if you prefer. The problems are practical in nature (no fizz-buzz or reversing linked lists), and you can use Google, man pages, etc., and ask us questions.\n\n4. We'll make an offer. We usually interview in batches, so there may be a short delay while we interview other candidates, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.\n\nIf you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.\n\n## Requirements\n\nWe require that you:\n\n- have a minimum of 2โ€“3 years of relevant experience (we aren't taking on more new graduates at the moment).\n- will work for us full time (or nearly full time).\n- will usually be available in our core hours, 2pmโ€“5pm UK time.\n\nApplicants in the UK, Europe, US and Canada are preferred.\n\nExperience with the technologies we use is always a plus, but you don't need to know them all; your ability to learn is much more important to us.\n\n## Benefits\n\n- Remote and flexible working.\n- Salary ยฃ40kโ€“ยฃ75k per year depending on experience.\n- You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.\n- We're substantially (around 80%) open source, so your work will often be on open source code.\n- We're backed by Bethnal Green Ventures (https://bethnalgreenventures.com/) and Digital Science (https://www.digital-science.com/), through which we're part of a wider community of startups in science, health and ed-tech.\n- Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.\n- We get everyone together in London for team meetings several times a year for valuable face-to-face time (pandemic permitting).\n- You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide what you need.\n- We provide a training budget; many of our developers choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.\n- We run quarterly [remote hackathons](https://www.overleaf.com/blog/overleafs-remote-hackathon-revisited-one-year) to keep learning and experimenting.\n- We run a weekly internal seminar series with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.\n\nWe are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. \n\nBe sure to mention the words **CENTURY DECADE ORDINARY** when applying to show you read the job post completely. This is a beta feature to avoid spam applicants. Companies can search these words to find applicants that read this and see they're human.\n\n \n\n#Salary and compensation\n $55,000 — $105,000/year\n \n\n#Location\nUS, Canada, UK, Europe
