Are you a web developer eager to gain some serious experience with big data (~10 billion transactions per day)? Help us build the web tools to wrangle billions of transactions every day.
Our team is sharp and works well together. We enjoy perks such as daily paid lunch, a 9/80 schedule (to get every other Friday off) and unconstrained vacation (don't worry about having to build up enough vacation days for the family reunion); the culture of our team recognizes and respects the importance of your non-work life. Also, Ventura county is a pretty nice place to live/work (unless you hate temperate coastal weather). If you've got Rails or other relevant web app experience, that's a good start. More importantly, you'll be eager to learn display advertising (banner ads, RTB) inside and out. Attitude, ambition and sound judgement trump experience with a specific set of tools. We're a small team within a medium-sized organization, and we work hard to keep the small-team vibe while availing ourselves of the best bits from the mother ship in Santa Monica.
#Position: Rails + exposure to Scala, Hbase & Kafka
We need someone to contribute to our Ruby on Rails app. It's used to administer hundreds of advertising campaigns across hundreds of publisher sites. It's not just boring CRUD. It provides a ton of control and insight to the team that operates our clients' campaigns; it's truly the heart of our display advertising business. The business folks will know you, and you'll find that excellence will stir up a tremendous amount of appreciation for your work. This role is a great way to learn advertising tech at scale as well as other tools. In addition to Rails work, you'd get hands on experience with Redis, Hbase, PostgreSQL, R and Scala. Several on the current team started in the Rails app and have moved into other areas of development (low-latency RTB bidder written in C, sophisticated reporting pipelines or novel optimization algorithms); so it's a great position if you want to develop broader technical skills while really taking advantage of your growing knowledge of our vertical.
