Javascript Developer

Join us & participate in 90+ years of literary heritage. Own a product & grow with Book of the Month. Book of The Month's engineering team is looking for an experienced developer we can count on, just as we count on each other. In late 2015, we relaunched Book of the Month, a monthly subscription e-commerce service that provides avid readers with a fun, convenient, and affordable way to discover and buy new books. Since then, we have been growing rapidly and need an intrepid engineer who can help us scale our business.
