Senior Software Engineer, Real-time Bidding Platforms

At Quantcast, we use technology to help brands and publishers understand, reach and influence the constantly-changing behaviors of consumers. The Real-time Bidding Platform owns and operates the large scale distributed stack which allocates millions of dollars of advertising budget to billions of bid opportunities streaming into the system. If you’re interested in working on these critical, fast, large scale distributed systems then we’d like to meet.

Working side-by-side with engineers and modeling scientists you will build and operate intelligent bidding, optimization, prediction and control systems that power different parts of this stack. You’ll lead projects to optimize the throughput of the stack while reducing costs and increasing advertising performance. You’ll drive design and implementation of new products for clients that’ll involve multiple teams and services.

Your typical work day includes:

  • Scaling our bidding systems to process millions of requests per second
  • Mentoring junior engineers
  • Improving development, testing, monitoring and operational tools and processes
  • Talking to customers and users, discovering their requirements and helping plan for building their next feature requirements
  • Profiling and optimizing bidding machines at the JVM, Kernel, network and CPU levels
  • Setting up and running experiments to improve stability and bidding performance across the stack

You have:

  • 4+ years experience developing and working on distributed software systems
  • Experience delivering improvements in scale, runtime, cost, features or reliability under little supervision
  • Excellent skills in distributed system and software design, concurrent algorithms, data structures and software engineering
  • Hands-on experience with Java, C, Go or a similar language
