Our unique culture
You’ll feel it the second you meet the team—and when you see the impact we have on schools and students. Paper is driven to build an amazing business like none other, but we’re also fueled by a mission that is much, much bigger. It’s exciting, challenging, energizing, rewarding, and a whole lot of fun.
Our Philosophy on Paper
At Paper, we win when students win.
We boost the confidence of students who are ready to embrace technology to improve the quality of their academic journey. Our adaptable and creative team is driven to push the limits of every student’s potential, leveraging innovation and efficiency to secure immediate support. The stakes are high: When each student’s story changes from struggle to success, from self-doubt to self-worth, we win together.
To do this, every member of our team embodies six supporting philosophies that we believe drive a culture of winning: starting with selflessness and resulting in excellence.
You solve the big problems. We support you along the way.
