Engineering team and processes

Simple, we hop on a call at beginning of week, decide what to work on and go do it. If you need more structure/process, we aren't the place for you :)

Technical Challenges

Handling thousands of requests per second while maintaining <100ms of latency when performing real business logic (not just shuffling packet arounds or key/value storage caching).

Projects you might work on
  • Help us introduce machine learning across the TB's of data we have collected over the years, or simply put, how do we build some secret sauce in the advertising world?

  • Help improve the ms performance of our ad server and experiment with new languages (Rust, Go, etc) to get more performance.

  • Help stabilize our infrastructure (availability, performance, etc), evaluate different open source products, refactor our data ingestion/analysis pipeline, etc.
