Javascript Developer

Own a product and grow with Book of the Month! We are a diverse development team looking for an experienced developer we can count on, just as we count on each other. Our company is growing, so we need an intrepid engineer who can help us scale our business. In late 2015, we relaunched Book of the Month, a powerful brand with 90 years of history, as a monthly subscription e-commerce service that provides avid readers with a fun, convenient, and affordable way to discover and buy new books each month. We have been growing rapidly since the relaunch. 

About Our Tech
We've built a next-generation eCommerce platform on React/Node/ES6/WebPack. We have a streamlined and functional code style, so any background in Lisp/Haskell/Scala/Clojure or academic approach will serve you well here (though definitely not required, we've all had to learn!). It really is JavaScript all the way down, but for the heavy lifting we leverage some powerful AWS & 3rd party services, so if you haven't been exposed to DevOps tasks in your daily work before, you will here.


  • 1-3 years of experience shipping production code
  • Strong JavaScript skills, as well as proficiency in at least one other language
  • Familiarity with data structures and algorithm design
  • Proficiency in SQL
  • Excellent communication skills


  • Experience with cloud application services, preferably AWS.
  • Web application development with a fairly complex build stack (ie. webpack, React)
  • Desktop development and networking for special-purpose devices (ie. Electron, Raspberry Pi)
  • Familiarity with an ERP (ie. NetSuite)
