Software Engineer - Scala Medialets
We are looking for someone to provide innovative solutions to build and scale rock-solid web apps for the advertising industry. Our clients expect us to lead and we work hard to deliver a phenomenal end user experience, and reliable, timely interactions at very big scale. You'll have the opportunity to engage with, teach and learn from many experienced developers working on emerging mobile, analytics, data processing, and ad serving platforms.
Specifically, you will be working on Muse, the front-end systems that our customers use to manage their mobile and tablet ad campaigns. This includes trafficking, reporting and advanced analytics, creative management, workflow, social interactions and a host of other capabilities that make our system the #1 third-party ad server in mobile. This is a highly visible role with tremendous support from product, UX, executive management and the entire company. And our clients will love what you?re building.
Performance analysis, testing and tuning will also be a significant responsibility in your job - with our large transactional volume, every last bit of performance counts. You should be able to step back and look at a problem in different light to identify an approach that improves performance while not overly complicating the solution.
You have a track record of designing, building and testing complex systems.
You see problems as opportunities and have what it takes to effectively communicate, brainstorm and collaborate to work through them.
You?re as comfortable in Java - or preferrably Scala - as you are speaking English.
You agree that software can be both functional and sexy at the same time, and it pains you to see anything but a beautiful product ship.
5+ year(s) experience in development with the JVM
3+ year(s) experience in server side development
2+ years(s) experience with Scala as a programming language is highly preferred
Experience with either Ruby, Python or Linux Shell - show us you're a well-rounded developer and we'll love you even more.
Database experience. Be one with SQL, know and understand the value of an ORM, and even more importantly, when not to use one.
Have tremendous problem solving skills. Help us solve problems, not just write to spec.
You'll have stellar oral and written communication skills. We like to communicate, you?ll need to, too.
You agree that writing tests is a way to sleep at night and not a reason to wake up in the morning - or worse, in the middle of the night.
Passion isn?t just a fruit, it?s a way of being, and you embrace it in all that you do.
