Our customer is a US-based technology company that builds the next generation of advertising products and premium video experiences.
The company pioneered the engagement-based ad model and now delivers effective advertising for on-demand, interactive media. Having a solid belief that ads should be enabling rather than interruptive, it has built the definitive engagement advertising system around the core product. The latter one delivers on the promise of “zero waste” advertising. Thus, our customer provides the best advertising experience for consumers, the best monetization for premium publishers, and the best return for brand advertisers.
The project is about developing a bar-raising platform that serve and support advertising campaigns to maximize viewer, advertiser, and publisher benefit.
The team uses data engineering, data science, big data and full-stack engineering using technologies such as Python/Ruby, Scala/Elixir, SQL, Angular/React, AWS (mostly DynamoDB and Kinesis), Databricks/EMR, Spark and Spark Streaming, Redshift/Athena and high traffic: 10GB of streaming data is consumed per day, public APIs. There are hundreds of TBs of data in our data lake.
As a Platform Engineer, you will be an important part of the team that works on a proprietary Ad Server. This is no small responsibility: as an AdTech company, the Ad Server is the cornerstone technology.
If you’re excited by and have experience working in high traffic environments, building public-facing APIs, and take pride in your well-factored code, this might be the role for you.
