Song of the Broad-Axe Publications is hiring a developer to continue work on Song of the Broad-Axe Publication’s proprietary software to help readers and writers engage dynamically with a centralized system. This software is primarily a set of simple, but effective, tools for use internally at Song of the Broad-Axe Publications, but it may, in time develop into a public facing entity. It is meant to foster critical engagement with literature, improve the process of play rehearsal, and facilitate the sale and distribution of the products generated by a small publisher. A working web app is already in use. The codebase is commented out and cleanly. Applicants should be familiar with the following libraries, frameworks, and services. A more exhaustive description of the stack, along with user stories, a broader write-up of what the program is, and planned new implementations will be made available to applicants.
If hired, you will be the primary and sole professional developer employed. To begin with, I will be reviewing the code you push to a GitHub repository and implementing that code to the server. This role is best for someone who enjoys a high degree of autonomy and that may have an interest in helping to develop new projects and hire new developers. Tasks will be managed in GitHub Issues rather than Jira.
A visual demo will be given to the candidate during the interview. bapublications.com is not the domain where the web application is hosted. A second, in-person interview will be conducted of the likely hire.
An IP assignment agreement will be required, and a W-2 will be filed for the employee.
