AbeBooks, an Amazon company

To booklovers around the world, AbeBooks is a great place to buy books. However, we have always been a technology company that helps booksellers and book-buyers. Since 1996, our technology has been helping to revolutionize the book business and that quest goes on.

Our technology workers are versatile, quick-thinking and thrive on deadlines. They plan and build systems that will yield long-term tangible benefits but also drop everything when required to solve critical issues where every minute counts. Anyone looking for a technology job at AbeBooks has to prove they are a flexible team player because there is no room for prima donnas. We do a lot with a relatively small number of people.

We are devoted to Agile practices and methodologies in software engineering, and e-commerce is a business that never sleeps when it comes to site operations. Our QA engineers are analytical on a global scale. Scalability is the magic word for the database administrators while the product managers have vision and a get-it-done attitude. Our web developers insist on the highest standards when building dynamic pages and user interfaces. Do you have what it takes to join our team?
