Job Description

With over 80 million members, Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. As a Top 100 web destination, our mission is to help people find and share books they love. Goodreads members can discover new books by seeing what their friends and members of the community are reading or by using the Goodreads Book Recommendation Engine. Our platform also helps more than 220,000 authors to connect with readers. Goodreads is a subsidiary of Amazon, Inc.

The Discovery/Community team at Goodreads is responsible for helping our users navigate this massive treasure trove of information. We strive to find for our users the next book they will fall in love with, help them explore books on our site and give each of our users an experience that is truly unique to them. We work on many of the core experiences at Goodreads, including recommendations, reviews, groups, and more!

As a Software Development Engineer, you will develop customer-facing experiences in a fast paced environment. You will provide hands-on coding & development, and should be comfortable working in an environment where code is pushed into production multiple times in a day.

You will be expected to work in a heterogeneous environment of different languages and technologies and bring flexibility, speed, and quality to our team.
