We are looking for a junior software engineer with solid server-side scripting experience to become a core member of a sharp, dynamic team. AppNexus clients trade on a steady stream of online media through our real-time transactional platform, a distributed system built on top of the AppNexus computing cloud that responds in a few milliseconds to billions of requests each day — 24/7, 365 days a year.
We need an efficient and agile engineer motivated by solving interesting technical challenges and building new applications quickly. Our team does its development in PHP, though we're interested in you as long as you've had exposure to some server-side scripting language. We're rapidly developing both RESTful APIs and rich user interfaces for our clients and in need of engineers to help take us to the next level.
The position requires a problem solving mindset. The ideal candidate is hands-on and proactive when designing applications, is good at finding simple solutions to complex problems, and is comfortable coding off of a problem statement instead of a formal spec. Our environment is open, collaborative, and encourages learning. We release new code at least once a week (as continuous deployment actually increases reliability), so you must be both fast and accurate with your code and confident in your work. You’ll immediately see the results of your work and creativity — as will the rest of our team, our clients, and the world at large.
1+ years of experience writing production-level software
Familiarity with SQL
Experience with server side application development and web-services, especially REST
Experience with writing unit tests within a testing framework
Experience in LAMP development and version control
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, 24/7 environment
Experience developing in PHP
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
