You want to work at a thriving and stable company - with revenue and a viable growth plan. You want company structure, but still want to have a say on what and how projects are built. You want to be part of small and agile engineering group - where only the smart make it on the team, and where you can tap the VP of Engineering or CTO on the shoulder and contribute an idea. You want engineers to be present in the Board Room, to be steering the business growth and products with scalable, elegant and relevant engineering in mind. You want realistic timelines, clear specs and proper consideration of the business need behind the engineering work you do. You want to use new and cool technologies, with the ability to learn and work on things you haven't mastered yet. You want to talk about, try, and build stuff using new tools and languages. If up working till midnight when the feeling moves you, it just shouldn't be a nagging worry to rush into the office for a *start time* the next morning. It's about being engaged and getting stuff done.
You also want to be working on some interesting problems. As engineers, we don't think building ads is sexy or world changing by itself. But the industry brings in money, data and interesting challenges. Yes, there is some stuff that just needs to get done, but we have loads of real projects involving machine learning, scaling apps, performance tuning, and data collection and analysis - we get massive amounts of pretty interesting data. There is API building, often talking to Rails or Node.js. We also manage the cycle of ad campaigns, involving lots of steps, people, emails, and approvals - plenty of tool and process management stuff. As well as room to work on improvements to our devops and deployment, and automated testing practices.
We pay well - we don't want that to be something you are concerning over. We also do regular bonuses & increases, offer equity, full health coverage, occasionally office whiskey parties and a fun and stylish office to settle in at on Stevenson St. in the heart of SF.
We got a recent round of funding to grow our engineering team and are looking for several new additions - junior contributors, experienced folks, and engineers that can lead teams and projects. Although we'd like developers who can join our San Francisco team, there may be opportunities for more senior developers to work out of our New York office as well.
