Senior Ads Backend Engineer

About Brave

Brave is on a mission to protect the human right to privacy online. We’ve built a free web browser that blocks creepy ads and trackers by default, a private search engine with a truly independent index, a browser-native crypto wallet, and a private ad network (opt-in!) that directly rewards you for your attention. And we’re just getting started. Already 50 million people have switched to Brave for a faster, more private web. Millions more switch every month.

The internet is a sea of ads, hackers, and echo chambers. Big Tech makes huge profits off our data, and tells us what’s true and what’s not. Brave is fighting back. Join us!


Summary

Brave Ads is Brave’s global private ad network, redesigned from the ground up to reward users while enforcing the highest standards of user privacy.  Both end users and partners depend on our backend code to work reliably day in and day out, and scale up to meet ever increasing demand.  Brave is looking for a flexible, backend engineer who can help us build out additional features for marketers, and help us to further scale our ad serving platform.  We are looking for somebody who always prefers a simple solution over a complex one and who can take whole solutions from end to end.
