Overview

OpenX is looking for talented and highly motivated senior data engineers to help us innovate and improve our products. You will work in all aspects of agile application development, including our enterprise platform that interfaces with a multitude of services that are depended on to deliver billions of requests per day. Your opinions will be important in all phases of product development, starting from requirements to validation and deployment.

Working on the enterprise platform, you will be working with multiple distributed teams to architect, create, and deliver new features and functionality in order to deliver the best possible advertising experience in the market. You’ll be working with product and UX teams to bring consumer-grade user experience and design to the enterprise. Scalability, performance, and rock-solid reliability are all factors to consider with every line you code.

So who are we looking for? In addition to the right attitude, we’re looking for a rock solid Computer Science foundation. That doesn’t have to mean you graduated from Stanford with your BS or MS in CS. We are seeking to hire someone with a minimum of 5 years of experience along with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent degree. As a senior engineer, you’ll own components, processes, and workflows that demand professionalism, excellent communication, teamwork, and documentation skills.

In addition, you will play a central role in the design and development of the data platform. You must fluently speak algorithms and data structures, have great knowledge of design patterns and software architecture, and be able to whiteboard elegant code at will. You should have 7+ years of experience with either Java MR programming or Spark programming, solid understanding of either MR based or non-MR based (Storm/Spark) application models, familiar with Linux based DevOp environments and basic skills with bash scripts, and have a passion for development and a strong background in building dynamic, high-volume data platform with Java and other new technology frameworks such as Kafka, Spark, Druid etc. It would be a big plus if you have a good understanding of major components in Hadoop ecosystem – such as Spark SQL, Pig, Hive, HCatalog, Hbase, YARN, Oozie, Zookeeper, and other NoSql products.

If this sounds like your opportunity to make a massive contribution to one of our core products, as well as a chance to deliver the best experience possible at an enterprise level, we look forward to your application!

We were pioneers of enabling publishers and advertisers to use programmatic advertising to more efficiently deliver the right ads to the right audience in real-time.
