Background

About Jared

I started Scribd in a Harvard dorm and grew it to a top 100 website with 85+ employees.

At Scribd I've been involved with basically every aspect of the business and technology and have worn every hat in the closet. But my favorite parts have been building an amazing engineering team that I continue to learn from, working on the product and business strategy, and "growth hacking" user growth and monetization.

I love all stages of company building, from 2 guys (or gals) with an idea to scaling a profitable company to market dominance.

I'm currently a partner at Y Combinator. The best way to reach me is my email: jared at ycombinator.com
