You will be working with our Data Science, Marketing Analytics, Product, Design teams to build and implement new features and user interfaces in our products.

Marketing and Advertising technology stack changes all the time. Our mix of technologies is reassessed and tweaked all the time.

You are a fit if you have: 

  • JavaScript expert (browser-bound and bleeding edge NodeJS variants)
  • Understand fully, practiced enough and still like React and GraphQL
  • Have preference for use of JS/CSS/HTML tooling - Babel, Less/Sass etc. - that allows you to crank maintainable interfaces fast
  • Have a passionate story about why you chose a particular test / spec framework ( and why you use it religiously on most of your projects)

  • Understanding of CSS and experience with preprocessors (Less, Sass)
  • Good in and find pleasure in tinkering with CSS and HTML

  • Strong drive towards continuous learning and tinkering with new toys
  • Extreme bias for collaboration and comfort in reliance on other peoples' expertise
  • Extreme aversion to "Not Invented Here" kind of thinking. Affection for structured argument supported by rational, written narrative that can be reused for education of others and reference long after you forgot why a given decision was made.

Preferred industry exposure:

  • Ad Tech, Marketing Tech, or Payment Tech.
  • Worked with social graph / marketing / advertising / measurement APIs of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google (Adwords, Youtube).
