VP Engineering isocket
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED isocket makes advertising technology suck less.
isocket builds web apps and the underlying pipes & platforms to make online ad sales easier. 70% of the money in online advertising is still bought and sold by hand, over cocktails, and through email and fax machines. Almost all of the technology and ad companies you've heard of deal with remnant "Class 2" ads - the equivalent of teeth whitening ads you see on the last page of a magazine.
Our underlying platform was the world's first to power the programmatic buying and selling of "Class 1" ad inventory by connecting APIs from advertisers software (DSPs, etc) through to publishers software (ad servers like DFP, etc.) isocket also powers self-serve advertising for some of the web's best sites in our open marketplace, www.buyads.com.
So here's the deal:
With a very small team and little resources, isocket has millions in revenue, already released truly game changing innovations (like the worlds first Class 1 ad buying API), and won customers like AOL, Google, Salesforce, Adobe, Sitepoint, and thousands more.
isocket is (humbly) considered the thought leader in our space because we correctly skated to where the puck was going to be before anyone else even knew they were playing hockey.
Now that the market has caught up (everyone wants to play hockey), we're already the category leader. The last 6 months have been very exciting. But there is still a lot of mountain left to climb before we reach the summit.
To support this inflection point, isocket just raised a Series A round of funding from one of the best ad tech investors in the world. We're doubling the size of our team and going to lock in our leadership position over the next 12-18 months.
Our small-but-fantastic team wants a dedicated leader.
You're an amazing engineering leader who believes in the qualitative elements just as much as the code you build. You're not a "manager", you lead other engineers while still being a respected engineer who ships code. You recognize that how you direct the growth, organization, proccess, and culture of a product development team can make the difference between company success and failure.
Put simply: we want to be known in our industry (which is historically light on product development prowess) as the best group of well-oiled technologists around.
In the past, a lot of ad tech companies have won by piling sales people on top of poor or limited products. Our opportunity is the opposite - we will win through product, and you will help make that happen.

|Company Profile:||About isocket
isocket is an open platform for all forms of advertising. While many of our plans are still under wraps, our goal is to bring the benefits of the open web to the advertising industry - one of the last remaining "closed" markets. The first app on our platform (and our private beta) helps website publishers sell their own banner inventory through direct sales.
isocket is one of the few growing and funded early stage startups in the Valley. We launched a private beta program in May with our first customer, TechCrunch.com. isocket was recently funded by some of the world's best investors, such as Tim Draper at DFJ, Jeff Clavier at SoftTech, and Dave McClure at Founders Fund.
