Who we are:
We’re on a mission to improve the way people discover stories that
matter. PressReader is a global platform that connects readers to the
world’s best newspapers and magazines.
We’re all about choice. Using their phone or tablet, readers can browse
online or download entire issues using the PressReader app. They can
subscribe for unlimited access, build their own package, or get the full
experience sponsored by one of our brand partners. Our headquarters are
in Vancouver, but we’ve got offices in Dublin and Manila, too.
PressReader works closely with some of the world’s biggest brands to
create engaging digital experiences for their customers. Not to brag or
anything, but we’ve got friends at Cathay Pacific, Air Canada, Bell
Canada, AccorHotels, Forbes, Washington Post, Vogue, and Cosmopolitan.
We’re also really proud to be a forward-thinking employer that’s
committed to creating an open, inclusive environment that gives awesome
people the opportunity to be even more awesome.
Lucky for you, we’re always growing.
