  • Lead implementations for tooling and frameworks that result in high performance, quality, and automation for our ad tools
  • Build systems and write code hands-on
  • Own large and small projects related to our ad tools end-to-end

Who You Are:

  • 3+ years of experience developing and architecting web apps, with a heavy usage of modern JavaScript frameworks/languages and a solid understanding of reactive state

  • A collaborative spirit
  • Able to work in a fast-paced environment

  • Industry experience with web applications and microservice architectures
