Role Description

At Liftoff, we’re solving one of the core problems faced by every mobile app: growth. To do so, we build Machine Learning models and infrastructure that can accurately predict which apps a user will like and how to connect them in a compelling way. Our systems operate at a scale unseen outside of the largest Internet companies — processing over three million requests per second and interacting with over a billion users. Some of our customers include Amazon, Airbnb, Nike, as well as smaller businesses. Our technology is innovative and we have strong product-market fit; as a result, we've already reached profitability and are seeing tremendous growth.

As a Software Engineer at Liftoff, you will:

  • Have end-to-end ownership of projects, and collaborate with a small team of world-class engineers with diverse backgrounds.
  • Ship code multiple times a day, and within seconds see its quantified impact on millions of users and our business's revenue.
  • Be part of an “engineering excellence” culture through state-of-the-art tools, risk-driven testing, explainable systems, and code review.
  • Become an authority in Clojure, Go, and the many other cutting-edge open source technologies that maximize our development velocity.
  • Join a nimble, consistently excellent, and experienced engineering team (former Google/LI/Ooyala/etc).

We are a small engineering team working at the intersection of high-performance distributed systems, machine learning, and programmatic web UX, demanding creativity, constant learning, and raw smarts. We have a unique breadth and depth of technical challenges to work on here including distributed systems and high performance computing challenges. We think deeply about our engineering culture, provide strong mentorship, and care more about hiring smart generalists. You can check out our engineering culture page to get a deeper insight into how we think about this: http://liftoff.io/company/engineering/. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. Come join our team and help us shape the future of mobile growth!
