Apply for this position

Join us and become a part of history as together we change the face of e-commerce for digital content and preserve the ability of authors to earn a living writing. We are looking for smart, creative engineering and development support to add a long list of functions to our existing web site, extend our database backend functionality, create the system tools needed to support our licensed partners, develop mobile apps, and to provide ebook content distribution through all the major ebook stores.


The current beta site has baseline functionality developed in Ruby-on-Rails. We assume work will continue in Ruby, but we want you to choose the tools that will allow you to do your best work. You are the expert. We will provide you with any development tools you want (within reason).


Highlights



If hired, you will receive a hefty equity grant relative to the position. You will also earn direct payment in the form of a revenue share on every dollar from the site, tools, and distribution your work enables, increasing as gross revenue increases, until those rev-share pay levels reach your target salary.


We are located in the growing Lebanon/Hanover, NH tech region around Dartmouth and the Lebanon airport, but during our launch phase, we expect candidates to work from home, wherever that may be. We will pay for relocation, should that become necessary in the future.

It is important that you either have or are willing to gain an appreciation for digital content creators -- authors and artists. Our success is dependent on our ability to help them prosper and want that perspective to be shared by everyone on our team. Please describe your interest in Scribl, CrowdPricing, ebooks, or authors in your cover letter. The resume should show you have the skills. The cover letter is what tells us why you may be the right person for the position.



We are Scribliotech, a unique e-publishing company for sale of digital content by independent authors, developers, and artists. We exist to provide content creators (artists, authors, and developers) with ever improving means to promote and sell their creative work to interested customers and for those customers to easily find and acquire for a fair price the works that will be most appealing to them.


You can see the current beta version of the site at http://www.scribl.com, and our subsidiary audiobook site at http://www.podiobooks.com. With domestic and international patents pending and an impressive and growing partner list, we have developed an entirely new and disruptive CrowdPricing(TM) system for digital content. We believe our CrowdPricing and distribution system will become the digital content model of the next decade, better addressing the interests of consumers, authors/developers, and distributors than any other current system.
