    About BOTM

    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 with fun, convenient, and affordable way to discover and buy new books each month. We have been growing rapidly since the relaunch. Check out our instagram @bookofthemonthclub to see us in action.

    About Our Team

    We are a diverse team of marketers, product managers, engineers, designers, editors, content creators, and more -- but most importantly we all share a love for the important role books and reading play in our lives and our culture. Our HQ team works out of our office in the Flatiron neighborhood in NYC and our fulfillment team operates our warehouses in Hanover, PA and (coming soon) Las Vegas, NV. We are ~40 team members deep and growing!

    About Our Books

    If you’re an avid reader, one thing is for certain: if you only shop the “bestseller” lists, you’re going to miss many of the best stories. That’s why we work hard to bring our members the gems: well-written, immersive stories that transport you, give you thrills, and tug at your heartstrings. The books that are truly worth reading.

    About our technology

    We've built a next-generation eCommerce platform on React/Node/ES6/WebPack (and nothing else, fight package bloat!) We've drank the ES6 kool-aid and 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!) Finally, 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.
