AppNexus is looking for a senior Front-End Developer to help build a next-generation transactional system on top of our existing RESTful API services. We need an efficient and agile engineer who is motivated by solving interesting technical challenges: building new front-end applications that allow for efficient buying and selling of online advertising inventory.
The position requires a problem solving mindset as much as it requires web development skills. The ideal candidate is hands-on when designing applications and is comfortable coding off of a problem statement instead of a formal spec. 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.
5+ years experience writing production-level HTML, CSS & JS on the client-side and using a scripting language on the server-side.
Mastery of at least one JS framework - we use jQuery
Familiarity with at least one MVC framework - we use Zend Framework for PHP
Proven experience writing fast, scalable code
Experience consuming APIs
Experience with writing unit tests within a testing framework
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, 24-7 environment
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 dollars in funding we just received? http://appnexus.com/news/press-releases.php
