Overview

TL;DR

A rapidly growing, profitable ebook discovery startup with millions of members is looking for a few of the best engineers in Boston to join our core engineering team.

Engineering

BookBub is unlike just about any other startup in Boston; we’ve bootstrapped our way to millions of members with a small engineering team. Now that we’ve proved that millions of consumers love BookBub, we need to grow and expand our products and features. Our situation is unique because we’re small enough that each engineer owns significant chunks of the product, but we’re big enough that everything we build is seen by millions. It also means we’re fortunate to be able to offer good market-rate salaries and more equity than is typically found with a company at this stage.

We’re Looking For

  • Smart, intellectually curious developers
  • Excited to be part of the small core engineering team with a huge engineering opportunity to build out a consumer web platform
  • Want to go fast, but at a sustainable pace — we’re running a marathon, not a sprint
  • People who want to learn our tech stack if they don’t already know it: so far it’s a really clean Rails app (Ruby 2.1, Rails 4.1, Postgresql, Haml, Sass, CoffeeScript, ActiveAdmin, Sidekiq, Redis, Capybara, Poltergeist…) running on top of great services like AWS, Github, New Relic, Semaphore, CodeClimate, Papertrail, etc.
