    RedShelf is a competitive digital content delivery platform in the higher-ed textbook arena that has disrupted the ancient industry of college textbook distribution by creating strategic partnerships backed by an exceptional digital content platform. RedShelf’s mission is to create new efficiencies for digital content discovery, distribution, and consumption in the learning community.

    With a team of 26 and growing, we aim to improve the online learning experience and accelerate the transition to digital in ways that support publishers, institutions, bookstores, faculty, and most importantly students. We are constantly working to accomplish this by continuing to improve our ereader platform and by partnering with over 450+ college bookstores and 2000+ content creators (i.e. Pearson, McGraw-Hill etc.) to spur digital adoption on campuses worldwide.

    We live and breathe by the ever-famous “Work Hard – Play Hard” motto to achieve our goals. Our ambitious, close-knit team enjoys the environment of RedShelf where they can learn, grow and work towards purposeful contribution and individual success. We recognize that we would be no where without the amazing individuals who make up our team which is why we put a huge emphasis on maintaining our dynamic, fun and hardworking company culture.
