About our project

Bookmate Android app is a subscription-based digital library and also a beautiful reader that you can use to read your own .epub and .fb2 books. We are most proud of our recommendation mechanism that adapts to user’s reading preferences and of our social component that allows users to leave reviews, make friends, give likes and comments, save and share quotes from favorite books and much more.

If you’re willing to try Bookmate before going to the tech interview, send us a word to hr@bookmate.com along with your CV and/or portfolio of projects. We'll provide you with a promo code that will allow you to explore the app.

About our processes

The mobile development team follows the best practices of creating high-quality software:

Continuous integration. Automatic code builds are run for every commit made to any repository branch.

Code review. Any code change will be reviewed by at least two randomly chosen teammates.

Collective code ownership. Any member of the team can make the necessary changes to any part of the system.
