Senior Back End Developer

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.

PublishDrive gives authors and independent publishers the power to publish ebooks, print books, serials, audiobooks, and translated works for foreign markets through more than 50 partners and retailers in more countries around the world. We integrate marketing tools and a reporting dashboard in our platform. And instead of charging authors and publishers additional royalties every time they sell a book, we charge one flat fee in order to control expenses and keep every cent of the royalties earned.
