Senior Backend Engineer @ Zemanta

Opis delovnega mesta

We're looking for an experienced senior backend engineer to help us build and grow ad management services across Outbrain and Zemanta infrastructure. We are currently managing tens of thousands of ad campaigns and tens of millions of ad impressions per day, built with Java, Go, Kotlin, Mysql, Cassandra, Kafka and Hadoop.

Your team’s mission is to connect Outbrain’s advertisers to Zemanta’s programmatic supply. This includes a wide range of responsibilities:

Syncing thousands of ads and ad campaigns every minute.
Building internal tools for managing ad campaign syncing at scale.
Building internal tools for approving new ad placements efficiently.
Ensuring feature parity between Outbrain and Zemanta products.
Supporting business and product teams to run ad hoc experiments with direct impact to advertisers’ performance and company revenue.

Your personal responsibilities:

Collaborate with software engineers and scientists to research, develop, and deploy models and services at large scale.
Leverage our rich data sources and large-scale computing resources to build systems that process tera-bytes of data to improve outcomes for our advertisers.
Perform software research, development, evaluation, and optimization.
You’ll align and coordinate with product managers, architects, and other engineers to solve complex problems and cross-team challenges.
You’ll actively contribute in technical decision making ranging from algorithm design to system and data architecture.
You’ll share your expertise with the team and help guide junior engineers to take on bigger challenges and more responsibility.
You'll work with exciting technology: most of our backend is written in Java/Kotlin or Go, and we use Cassandra, Aerospike, Hadoop, Redshift and Kafka to handle our data.
You'll get a lot of freedom - you'll be encouraged to work on any part of the codebase to get the job done, and you'll deploy all the code yourself (don't worry, our tools make this super easy). This will allow you to move fast and deliver value with nothing slowing you down.
