Publisher Seeks Software Designer to Create Kindle Formatting App
I'm looking to launch a membership site in the next month or so for would-be writers, and one of the features I'd like to offer is some kind of formatting software that would let people upload their MS Word file...
...and have it spit out as a .mobi file. (The proprietary format of Amazon.)
I'll admit I don't know all the technical sides to this, but for the right qualified person this might be a pretty cool project to work on.
A couple things you should have if interested:
a) You should have experience or be knowledgable about the Kindle .mobi format.
b) You should have experience creating apps for consumers.
c) You should be pretty familiar with MS Word, and all the crap that program puts into their documents. (Or perhaps Open Office.)
I'll be very honest I don't have any clue how much to pay for this job, since I don't know exactly how long it will take. But I have posted, what I think is a fair sum. (But I am open to a conversation about compensation, and am looking for the best candidate, not just the cheapest bid.)
If interested, please reply with a description to your previous software dev work along with the phrase KINDLE ROCKS to let me know you read the entire ad.
We look forward to hearing from you!
