Job Description

I am looking for an editor of a Books database of my site. The database holds around 15,000 entries. The candidate's tasks will be:

1 - Create a list of genres and subgenres, that will be able to categorize and help find all of the popular books currently on the market. Currently the list of genres is established, mostly the question will be on which subgenres to use. The list of subgenres will be approved by me. The subgenres would include special categories for major awards (Pullitzer, Booker, etc.)

2 - Once the list is established, it will be required to categorize most of the titles into the appropriate subgenres.

3 - Finally, the candidate will need to check the database for completeness and make sure that major works in both fiction and non-fiction are included (can verify with the major lists and awards).

The candidate should be an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction, should know the quality best sellers on the Western market, should have a good command of English language and ideally should have the experience in categorization and indexing of books.
