iParadigms – Why Work For Us?


iParadigms was founded by graduate student researchers at UC Berkeley who created software to monitor the recycling of papers in their large, undergraduate classes. Encouraged by the interest from their peers, they assembled a team of instructors, mathematicians, and computer scientists to create the world's leading cloud-based plagiarism detection and online grading service. Today, iParadigms' product offerings include Turnitin for instructors, iThenticate for research professionals, WriteCheck for students and Turnitin for Admissions professionals.

Among the most widely distributed educational technologies in the world, iParadigms' products serve more than 10,000 institutions in 126 countries and process over 80 million submissions annually. iParadigms is backed by Warburg Pincus and is headquartered in Oakland, California, with an international office in Newcastle, U.K.
