Technical Summer Intern

Technical Summer Intern

AppNexus is powering the advertising that powers the internet, and we’re looking for awesome students to come spend the summer with us. If you are excited by a platform that can process 130+ TB of data and serve 45 billion ads each day, and you are looking to solve unique, complex technical challenges this summer, then AppNexus is the place for you. As an AppNexus technical intern you will spend 10 weeks in our New York City headquarters writing code, pushing it to production, and making an impact on one of our engineering teams.

About the team:

Engineering is at the core of what we do at AppNexus. Our Software Engineers play a pivotal role in developing, improving, and scaling our online advertising technology platform. Our software is complex, massively scaled, and built with a wide variety of languages and tools, lending itself to the most exciting and challenging technical problems. We are currently hiring interns onto two engineering teams. Read below for team descriptions.

DevOps

We manage thousands of globally-distributed servers, focus heavily on automation and continuous deployment, and build internal tools for using our technology more efficiently. Still not sure what this team does? Our former intern, Robert, can tell you all about it: http://bit.ly/2hxpkeZ

AppNexus offers one of the most powerful client-facing products in the online advertising industry: AppNexus Console.
