We are seeking world-class, hands-on team leads/development managers to help architect the evolution of our state-of-the-art ad serving platform, and to manage the team that’s building it, which happens to be one of the smartest dev teams in the city. You’ll need some serious chops to garner their respect and keep up with the extremely agile environment in which they’re all accustomed to working. Our extremely successful platform is very large-scale, globally distributed across 3 data centers, service oriented, and event driven. We handle a hundred thousand ad serving requests per second (100s of billions per month), and respond with very strict latency requirements. In addition, we data-mine a warehouse of 10 TB+ of data (and growing!), to generate some very sophisticated analytics/optimization that drive decisions behind the ad-serving process.
We expect a dramatic increase in the data rates and volumes in the near future and even more stringent latency requirements from our partners, and so we need to make significant enhancements to the architecture of our platform. We release new code at least once a week (as continuous deployment actually increases reliability), so evolutions of the platform must take place in a continuous, rather than incremental, manner.
Experience leading teams of 5+ people
Experience in a highly agile, low process environment
Outstanding skills in either object-oriented programming, or open-source web technologies
Experience with real time, low latency, high throughput and large scale systems
Experience with data structures, algorithms, profiling and performance optimizations

If they always called you "nerd" as a kid and you answered "awesome!" then you will love working here. We are dynamic and diverse (we have several entrepreneurs who have started multiple companies, creative writers, artists, and a fashion designer), and we focus our talents on working together to build a massively robust, intricate, and usable ad platform. Even after growing rapidly and being validated by our many customers and industry praise, we've stayed a lean, agile, and efficient organization: the MacGyver of advertising.
That still not exciting enough? How about the $50 million in funding we just received? http://appnexus.com/news/press-releases.php
