How you'll make an impact:

Our Ads Engineering team is looking for a Sr Staff/Staff level engineer to help develop finance-oriented solutions across a wide variety of applications in our Ads ecosystem. While this position focuses primarily on ad finance applications, it also strongly emphasizes collaborating across many other neighboring teams.

You will help improve Ads Delivery pipeline capacity and implement new functionality ingestion pipelines. This is a Python-based role working in the Ads Buying space. Our team represents the source of truth for Billers. We develop and maintain services to enable our finance team to calculate revenue yielded from Ads and generate various reports. We are in the process of productizing the Billing platform; hence as a staff engineer, you are expected to contribute significantly to the design and planning of our team projects.

What you'll do:
  • Web applications with a variety of tech (Python/Django, Java, Node.js/React). This is primarily a backend services role.
  • Kafka-based stream processing applications.
  • API-focused services (GraphQL and REST)
  • Google Cloud solutions using BigQuery, Composer, Hive, etc.
  • Mentor team members on best coding and design practices
  • Analyze requirements and technical specifications from the product team then organize the tasks needed to accomplish them. Work with product to refine requests into well-crafted services.
  • Learn about the existing services and be able to add to them if needed.
  • Participate in agile ceremonies including scrums, backlog grooming and sprint reviews.
  • Document all technical design, code, build and release procedures. Be a leader in clear communication and excellent coding.
  • You must be comfortable with a constant state of learning and remain highly motivated in your efforts to understand many different systems.
  • Testing, automation and code review are at the core of our work. You will participate earnestly in code review, seeking to build understanding in the process. Where you find toil, you will leave automation. And while we don't subscribe to a particular testing dogma, we value testing greatly and expect that you do, too.
  • Collaboration and communication are also essential to life on our team. You'll work with many other ad engineering teams, as well as many teams outside of that space. You'll also work closely with our product management team, who in turn work tirelessly to distill our stakeholders' needs for us. You will be fully invested in all of these interactions, striving always to enable others.
  • You prize creativity, simplicity, pragmatism and attention to detail, and we do too.

  • 6+ years of development experience with Python.
  • 4+ years of experience working with SQL based datastores
  • 4+ years of experience building and deploying REST based API services

  • Dockerized containers (especially Nomad, Consul, Vault)
  • Mentoring other engineers on the team
  • Leading project design from the requirements phase through to developing and deploying.
