BookBub is a rapidly-growing startup launched by serial entrepreneurs and run by a team gathered from the publishing and tech industries. Every day millions of readers use our service to discover great books, and thousands of leading publishers and authors work with us to drive sales and find new fans.
Connecting readers with great deals on ebooks is just the beginning for BookBub. The rise of digital publishing is altering the way books are found, purchased, and read. We’re expanding our team to help address the challenges and opportunities of the publishing industry while continuing to help readers discover great books.
All employees receive competitive salaries and significant stock options. Money isn’t everything, but we believe organizations do best when the entire team is well compensated and shares in success.
We offer a variety of health, dental, and vision insurance plans across several carriers so employees can customize to their needs. Other perks include commuter discounts, top-notch office space, and a kitchen stocked with free drinks and snacks.
Each person we hire chooses their own computing equipment. We never want our team to be held up by slow technology, so we believe in buying the systems that help each individual work best.
We don’t obsess over when people are in the office and have a “take-what-you-need” vacation policy. We work hard, but understand that people are most productive when they can manage their own schedules.
We work together as a team, learn from each other, and have fun. And that camaraderie also extends outside the office to regular team gatherings such as happy hours, trivia nights, sports leagues, and of course, a monthly book club.
We share all of our key metrics and milestones — whether good or bad — in a weekly company-wide meeting. Transparency keeps everyone informed, builds trust, and helps us all make smart, data-driven decisions.
We steer clear of short-sighted activities, especially when they’re at the expense of our team’s work-life balance. As such, we avoid burnout traps like all nighters and unrealistic deadlines. We’re driven, but it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
We’re headquartered in Kendall Square in Cambridge, MA, right next to the MIT campus, perhaps the most concentrated square mile of startups, technological innovation, and entrepreneurial people in the world.
