How We Work
Overleaf is remote-first — all staff work remotely, and this is part of our values. We also have an office space in London for those that want to use it, and we get the whole team together a few times a year (usually in the UK) for face-to-face time.
Our core hours for meetings are 2pm–5pm UK time; we try to schedule all team meetings during this time, including daily 10–15 minute project standup calls and biweekly company update calls.
Our analysts work closely with the product and engineering teams during both discovery and delivery of new features. We always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews as well as doing quantitative testing and analysis.

  1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within 10 working days from when we receive it.
  2. We’ll schedule a 15-minute call for a discussion with our Head of Analytics to discuss the role and your experience, to see if they look like a good fit.
  3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically a 90 minute interview that includes a practical assignment which you can either prepare for in advance, or work on during the interview.
  4. 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 keep you informed throughout the process.
If you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.
To do this job well you’ll need to:
  • Have at least 3 years of experience in a similar role.
  • Be based in the US, Canada, the UK or Europe (EU member state)
  • Usually be available in our core hours, 2pm–5pm UK time

  • You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.
  • We organize company and team meetups several times a year for valuable face-to-face time.
  • We’ll provide a new Mac, PC or Linux laptop, along with a stipend for other equipment.
  • We provide a training budget and allocate time for training; many of our team choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.
  • We run regular remote hackathons to keep learning and experimenting.
  • We run a weekly internal seminar series with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.
  • Additional benefits package varies by country. Please ask us.
We're an equal opportunity employer.
