Book Runners is looking to hire a Senior Programmer. We are a startup textbook company that has experienced rapid growth over our first 8 months in business. Our revenue numbers have more than doubled since June 2017. We expanded from 2 employees to 6 full time and 1 part time employee in that time frame.
We specialize in wholesale & retail arbitrage opportunities. Our goal is to create a more modern, automated software that helps drive purchasing decisions, aggregates all our supplier's pricing data, and monitors inventory levels. A basic understanding of API calls and corresponding data integration will be a necessity. We've been told a Ruby on Rails approach would be best for this platform, but of course are open to ideas.
We have aspirations of utilizing some of the functionality of this software to create some public facing web pages that draw from the arbitrage idea. We just recently broke into the retail side of this business, so our own website where we can purchase/sell books is definitely on the horizon.
The position requires understanding business needs and translating them effectively into applications either individually or as part of a team. We aren't just looking for a programmer who can take a list of tasks and complete them, we are looking for an active participant in our business. Someone who is willing to learn how the company works and collaborate on ideas to help foster growth.
