At ScaleMonk we are building a product that will give mobile marketers access to state-of-the-art user acquisition capabilities. Without Scalemonk, the journey of building a user acquisition team can be very long. It involves hiring experienced and expensive marketers and data scientists, how to interact with each channel and how to understand the business value of each user.
We want mobile marketers to be able to skip this very complex journey and to focus on developing their business. ScaleMonk can handle all user acquisition efforts with no friction. Our product serves as the single-source of truth and control for mobile advertisers. It should be the tool they use to get insights, reporting, and to manage all distribution channels.
At Scalemonk we know that the work we do has a high impact on our company's success. In order to achieve that we work with a best of breed technology stack and have a mindset of being fully responsible for our systems - from their conception to production.
Join us to redefine the mobile user-acquisition landscape!

We are tackling extremely hard technical problems from scratch
You will gain more experience here than you would as a cog in a giant company. You will be exposed to more scale, newer technology and learn more
We do a lot of fun stuff! Some off-site team events we organized recently were: (i) going to a Warriors vs Lakers NBA game in a VIP area with open food and open bar; (ii) going wine tasting in Napa Valley for the whole day!
Engineering at ScaleMonk
We have a small, tightly focused engineering team building and deploying on a regular basis. We do daily standups which are often followed by design jams with other team members who are also focused on a common part of the project. As a result, there is a natural opportunity to work cross-functionally and across disciplines (eg Backend + ML/DS + Frontend all collaborating together). Source code control is via git.
We handle 1,000,000 ad requests per second and track 1.8 billion device profiles. We train ML models to directly control millions of dollars of ad spend. This is super hard to execute, but now we need to scale the systems to 2X, 5X, 10X, etc + adding new features and capabilities.
Build a vectorized targeting system that is able to match an inbound request against thousands of campaigns across many different targetable criteria. A good implementation reduces the number of campaigns that need to be considered and uses bit arrays to vectorize the matching process.
User clustering. Using trillions of user observation for billions of users, find user clusters using matrix factorization and clustering the resulting user embeddings.
Ad value prediction. Use ML models to predict the value of an ad impression. Take into account everything we can observe about the user and the ad impression. Must be trained 3x per day over 1B training examples.
