As a Big Data Engineer with LiveRamp’s Advanced TV team, you will bring this vision to life by building systems that collect, process, analyze, and distribute enormous quantities of data.  You’ll collaborate with other engineers to execute on a diverse range of data factory initiatives.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
