Moving to the Big Apple

It’s been a big year, moving from Melbourne and the land down under to the Big Apple, New York City! Not only that, moving roles within PaperCut from coding software to supporting customers around the world.  The first time I came to NYC was only 2 years ago. The vibe of the city was amazing, I […]

PaperCut MF v15.3 – The making of Integrated Scanning

Having been at PaperCut for 18 months now, I was lucky enough to learn and contribute in different areas of our product. From an accessibility feature to release print jobs, Mac client transformation to use the native bar through to adding support for the IMAP protocol in Email to Print. But that only lasted two months… and then […]

Industry placement: a day in the life of an intern

Greetings and salutations everyone! My name is Zak and I’m a 21 year old software dev intern who has been working at PaperCut for the last 8 months. Last year, I was in my 3rd year at Swinburne University (and during this time I bumped into one of PaperCut’s founders, Chris at a Golang meetup. […]

PaperCut co-founder wins sailing World Championship

Dinghies with sails glide across the open seas off the coast of Western Australia. The surface of the water hides the white-pointer sharks that silently menace below. This sounds like a dangerous pastime reserved only for daredevils with a death wish. (We can’t help but think of the Jaws movie, “We’re gonna need a bigger boat”). […]

Employee #2 Travels The World

I am one of the developers at PaperCut and don’t often write many blog posts. We developers are usually hidden behind our screens, drinking coffee and generating thousands of lines of code.  Typically developers don’t get out and about to meet our customers and partners face to face. But PaperCut developers are far from typical… I have […]

Making Technology Simple

I’ve heard it said that great technology is a simple solution to a complex problem. That statement sounds compelling, but I think it actually sells technology short. So much of the technology that we use every day and even take for granted is in fact extremely complex and clever – but is successful because it comes […]

My Trip to Melbourne

I spent the last week working from our main office in Melbourne. I live in Portland, Oregon and this is my second trip to Australia to work with the team here. The trip had been planned for months, and I’ll have to admit that I wasn’t really looking forward to the 13 hour flight or […]

Forty Two

Is it a coincidence that PaperCut currently supports 42 printer description languages , that I am turning 42 years old this year and, as we all know, 42 is the Answer to the Life, the Universe and Everything? Yeah, it probably is 🙂 Since joining the PaperCut team, I have mainly been working on the area […]

The SysAdmin: five parts tech and one part accountant!

Hello, my name is Jason and I’m the new member of the PaperCut team. In my previous position I was a Systems Administrator (SysAdmin) at a leading high school. I thought I’d share my story about PaperCut from my last role. Part of any SysAdmin job is finding technology that fits a business need and […]

The Eskie. An Australian invention.

In 1999 my family and I moved to Silicon Valley so I could experience working in a high-tech company making products on a large scale. Such jobs were hard to find in Melbourne then. One of the things I remember most about moving to Silicon Valley was the old Australian myth of brilliant ideas being […]
