About the Job
AbeBooks’ mission is “to help people find and buy any book from any bookseller”. As a part of this mission we work daily to help customers discover our marketplace and the millions of books available from thousands of booksellers. This is challenging and equally rewarding for a truly global marketplace for rare and collectable books. We feel proud to provide a seamless experience to buyers from over 200 countries purchasing products from sellers representing over 60 countries. Our sites get millions of page views every day, and we promote millions of books across several marketing channels. We like to think we know what we’re doing, and we’re always keen on learning and improving.

As an engineer you will have an incredible opportunity to learn and navigate among dozens of products that make up AbeBooks marketplace. You will appreciate the complexity of the business domain, and learn to value simplicity in software intensive systems. You will dive deep into search engine optimization, affiliate marketing, email, responsive design, and website UX. You will have occasion to work with Amazon teams and Amazon technologies as we take advantage of capabilities of our parent company. Last but not the least, you will be surrounded by smart and approachable colleagues, while living in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.

We’re looking for full-stack engineers – you will be working with Linux and Bash, AWS, SQL, queues, REST services, Java and Groovy, Python, HTML and JavaScript. You will be successful if you:

  • Have a strong sense of ownership and customer focus
  • Care about code quality and readability
  • Are comfortable working with data structures as much as discussing software development processes with your peers
  • Get inspired by collecting product and system metrics, and by proposing improvements
  • Persevere when troubleshooting build, deployment or live issues
  • Take code review feedback gracefully and provide your feedback with abundance
  • Love to see your code deployed, and want to see it happening more often
