Scriptura (formerly Cambridge Digital Bible Research, or CDBR) is a startup non-profit 501(c)(3) with the vision of equipping people to understand Scripture in order that, in it, they might see God for themselves. Scriptura brings scholarly excellence to exegetical resources for various audiences. Our first project has focused on the book of Psalms and Bible translators across the world.
We are intentional about fostering team rapport, such as the CEO scheduling back-to-back Zoom meetings that allow regularly for new introductions and brief meetings between colleagues.
We are a highly focused team that produces materials on a rigorous schedule. Because we are driven to perform at the highest level of quality, occasionally a long night is worth it to help each other meet deadlines.
Our team is small and tight-knit, valuing deep relationships and fostering a culture of trust. Praying together, caring for one another, jokes and puns flow seamlessly with academic jargon.
The organization is fully remote, which enables us to bring together people from all over the globe. Sometimes this means someone is up in the middle of the night to attend a meeting, but we value being together enough to make it worth it.
