Our team has the autonomy to decide where we can have the most impact, and get down to experimenting. We love metrics and the fast pace. We analyze data to uncover potential opportunities, generate hypotheses, and test them. We refuse to accept constraints, internal or external, and have a strong bias for action. We imagine, build prototypes, validate ideas, and launch follow-up experiments from the successful ones, which become applications that support traditional and audio book production, marketing, and other business needs.
The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic software engineer with an interest in building web applications and mobile applications that support book production. If you love keeping abreast of the latest technology and use it to help you innovate, and have strong leadership qualities, great judgment, clear communication skills, and a track record of delivering great products and hiring/coaching successful teams, you have the tools to be successful in this position.
