3+ months agoSan Francisco, CA
Quantcast is hiring Full Stack Senior Software Engineers to join the Product Engineering team in our San Francisco office.

As the real-time pulse of the Internet, Quantcast uses machine learning to drive human learning. We’ve built one of the largest computing infrastructures on the planet, collecting a constant stream of data from over 100 billion events a day, across 100+ million directly-measured destinations. In addition to this global network, Quantcast has engineered world-class map-reduce and real-time processing clusters at a massive scale, processing an average of 30+ PB of data every single day for various machine learning and data mining applications.

The Product Engineering team is responsible for developing products to deliver valuable audience insights to publishers and marketers alike. Having built successful Publisher products, now we like to empower Agencies and Marketers to achieve their campaign goals. We therefore expand the team to take on this challenge about building state of the art direct to consumer products that bring Publishers and Marketers together.

As a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer, you will help build and improve the applications and distributed systems that allow the customer to create and configure campaigns and to learn from the highly valuable insights about the Audience. You will thrive in an environment where independent decision-making is the norm. Individuals in this role will be excited to keep up with the fast evolving open source based big data technologies and applying it to our stack when applicable.

You should be comfortable implementing REST APIs that expose the underlying data for consumption by UI and/or clients. Individuals in this role will want to work on our many open-ended problems and will have an opinion when it comes to selecting the right tool/technology for the job (and the ability to explain why!)

At Quantcast, these full-stack polyglots work in all aspects of agile application development, from DB schema design, Data pipelines, Java business logic to advanced Javascript frameworks like ReactJS on the front-end. As a Full Stack Software Engineer at Quantcast, you will have a major impact on how the world perceives and interacts with our products.
