ABOUT THE ROLE:

Working on the developer tooling, processes, and productivity means speeding up all of engineering by improving the efficiency of the development process across all aspects. We design and implement processes and tools that impact everybody and help the organization continuously scale.

If you're the kind of engineer who says "I want to fix that", or "I can see how we can make experience of our engineers better" whenever you encounter a problem, then come join us. We focus where we can have the most impact, whether it's prototyping new platform-wide technologies, improving build performance, rethinking code organization, application monitoring and alerting systems, or building completely new deployment frameworks, just to name a few.

The Trade Desk's platform pushes the boundaries of modern software engineering and keeping it balanced requires tools and processes that do the same.

PEOPLE IN THIS ROLE MUST:

  • Care deeply about improving developer experience, tools, and engineering processes.
  • Communicate clearly and empathetically; your customers are your peers and you will work with them every day.
  • Drive innovative solutions while being sensitive to the current needs and realities of your fellow engineers.
  • Navigate differing opinions, ambiguity, and compliance requirements to build and advocate designs with clear objectives and trade-offs.

ADVANTAGES FOR ANY CANDIDATE:

  • Proven C# and/or Java
  • Experience organizing/refactoring large codebases
  • Experience of working with monitoring and alerting systems and creating frameworks around it
  • Experience working with configuration/management of continuous integration/delivery systems
  • Experience with configuration and management of cloud/virtualization platforms (e.g. AWS, Docker, Kubernetes)

WHAT WE CARE ABOUT:

What and how you can contribute is what's important to us. Our consideration is not limited by the kind of education you have or the specific technologies you have experience with. Variety of technical challenge is one of the best things about working at The Trade Desk as an engineer, but we do not expect you to know every technology we use when you start. What we care about is that you can learn quickly and seek complex problems using the best tools for the job.

An Insider's view of The Trade Desk

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We work in pods of 3-4 per client. Each pod has a trader, account executive, and account manager. Typically, account managers handle the daily communication with the client, provide platform training, support traders in optimizing/troubleshooting campaigns, and support sales. The three roles are indispensable to each client .

Everyone at The Trade Desk invests in each other’s growth. Management is very good about keeping up with everyone and understanding what your career plans are to help work with you in achieving them. The best part is being able to work together with a brilliant team to learn and grow together so you are never alone.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of my favorite meetings is our monthly product pitch where employees from all over the company get to pitch their ideas to our senior leadership and product teams. We are a product driven company and nothing informs the direction of our business more than having a say in what we should build next.

Alex

VP, Client Services & Strategy

What’s the vibe like in the office?

People come to the office to get their work done, but also want to enjoy their time in the office as well. We all take turns DJ’ing the Bluetooth speaker in the office and taking music requests from others. There’s constant collaboration and communication going on between all teams in the office.
