Come help us create the future of Stack Overflow. We're working on an all-new ad platform to match developers with the perfect job in real-time. It's built on node.js and uses real-time bidding to individually match every user with the right job for them -- all in under 50 milliseconds. We’re looking to add an experienced ad tech developer who can tell us what we’re doing wrong and keep us from reinventing the wheel.
We want to hire the right person wherever you are in the world. If you’re in New York or interested in relocating to our office, you’ll enjoy some amazing amenities like private offices and in-house chefs. If not, we’ll help you create your dream office at home, wherever that might be.
Skills & Requirements
We expect to see:
- Experience building high-scale, low-latency advertising technology
- Familiarity with ad pacing and forecasting
- Solid programming skills in your language of choice (not necessarily ours) and a track record of getting stuff done
- If you’re working remotely, strong telecommuting skills: self-motivating, self-directing, and a good communicator
We’d like to see (but not required):
- An active Stack Overflow and Careers 2.0 profile
- Any open source code or example projects that you’re proud of
- Any other evidence of your passion for building great software
