Join our merry band! We power the writing at your favorite TV shows.

We're Hiring JavaScript Developers

Every day, thousands of trained writers and producers at the absolute tops of their fields create the TV shows you love. What's less well-known is that many of them do it using a nightmare hodgepodge of three-ring binders, giant email threads, and legacy software daisy-chained together with telephone calls. We are a company dedicated to making their lives better, and we'd like you to come work with us.

Who We Are

Hello! We’re Scripto, a screenwriting and production software company that's become the platform of choice at The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Rundown with Robin Thede, The Jim Jefferies Show, Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas, and many others. The New Yorker called us "a fixture of late-night comedy news."

We're expanding our scope with the launch of Showrunner™, a collaborative writing and production platform for comedies, dramas, films, sketch shows, narrative podcasts, web series, plays – anything that starts as a script and becomes something bigger. It's already been used at Netflix's The Break with Michelle Wolf and Showtime's Our Cartoon President, and we've consulted with writers, producers, directors, and showrunners from dozens of other shows during development.

We value our hobbies and side projects and look forward to supporting your creative endeavors too.
