AppNexus is looking for a Junior Web Application Engineer 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 not only a formal spec but also off of a problem statement. We release new code every day (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 experience writing production-level code on the client-side HTML, CSS, JS.
Experience using a scripting language on the server-side.
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, 24-7 environment.
Nice to have:
Experience with a JS framework - we use jQuery
Experience with a MVC framework - we use Zend Framework for PHP
jQuery (or other JS framework)
Bachelors Degree in Computer Science or related discipline.
We offer competitive base salary, health, dental, 401(k), paid vacation and stock options. Annual performance bonus, paid quarterly.
