Life at Bookbyte

Bookbyte's mission is to benefit the lives of students. We look to do the same in the lives of the members of our team. We want to provide a work environment that's both fulfilling and fun, while encouraging a sense of community, diversity, and inclusiveness.

We know that the off-the-clock hours are just as important, so we strive to do all we can to help our employees achieve not just their career goals, but their educational, physical, and personal goals as well.

Salem Area Chamber of Commerce recognized Bookbyte as Employer of the Year, during the 2010 Business of the Year Awards, with regard to its continued dedication to employees and the greater community.

A Message from our founder

“I began this company in 1999 as a means to support my family. As we have grown more successful we have had the opportunity to do more than just be a place to make money. We don’t just put out slogans of ‘making a difference in other people’s lives’…..we live it. Courageous communication and acknowledgement of others is a value we hold dearly. Being a stand for you to be fulfilled in your life is a commitment that I personally make to you if you decide to join us."


- Steve Gross, Founder
