Senior Software Engineer, Brand

Are you interested in building big data systems? The Brand team plays a key part in helping Quantcast evaluate over 100 billion transactions a day, powering our high performance advertising product. To continue expanding, to handle larger data sets and bigger clients, Brand Engineers constantly build and refine all parts of our Brand pipeline, which is built on our offline cluster (processing 30-40 petabytes a day), our realtime edge system (2 million+ transactions a second), and our client facing tools. We create products for Quantcast’s biggest brand-name and highest spending customers to effectively target their most desired audiences online at enormous scale through highly customized campaigns based on a wide variety of machine learning and data processing techniques.

The most important traits of the Brand team are ownership and executional excellence. Here, you can say “I built that” and know that everyone can depend on your results. For example, we recently built the new Search Powered Audience (SPA) product and provide it to 100s of clients to run campaigns 24/7. This started as a hackathon project and within a year has grown to be a core Product on our team, reliably serving many of our clients.

  • Scaling our cluster jobs and edge systems to process billions of cookies and 100k targets very quickly
  • Building new forms of targeting based on demographics, behavior, interests, search, and other attributes from scratch to highly successful products serving 100s of clients
  • Participating in or leading design review and brainstorming sessions
  • Consolidating pipelines to create new, easy-to-use combinations of data products
