About Us

Chartbeat’s ( mission is to help content creators around the world better connect with their audiences. Leading media brands — including The New York Times, ESPN, the Washington Post, the BBC, and CNN — trust our suite of analytics and optimization tools to understand digital audience behavior and strengthen their content strategies. With a customer list of many of the world’s largest websites, our systems are built to handle over 300,000 requests per second and deliver data back in real-time. You'll be joining a group of focused, hard-working, people who are passionate about doing work that's challenging and fun—and who strive to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

The Team

Our data systems use an exciting array of technologies. Most of our data systems use Python and key parts of our systems are written in Clojure, Java, C, and Lua where the requirements demand it. We use a variety of database technologies, including PostgreSQL, HBase, Snowflake, MongoDB and Redis. Everything is connected by message buses powered by Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ.
