Community Manager

PublishDrive, the only SaaS self-publishing platform you need to publish, promote, and sell your books in the digital age is hiring a new Community Manager!

Who we are:

We started with a simple idea—that everyone should be able to publish their books—and we’ve been rethinking the publishing journey ever since.

For authors, we’re creating a one-stop-shop to run the entire publishing business, from converting a manuscript to publishing in thousands of stores and sales analytics for all book formats: ebooks, print-on-demand or audiobook. For publishers, we’re making it faster to publish thousands of books to the retailers readers love and enjoy pro publishing tools and features.

Publishing sounds like a simple thing and it should be. Somewhere along the way, it got complicated. We’re working hard to make publishing easy for everyone.
