About Us...

Permutive is built on the core principle of responsible marketing, which includes privacy, consent and transparency. Its Audience Platform empowers publishers and advertisers to responsibly activate audiences without any third-party access to personal data.

Permutive is listed in Y Combinator’s Top 150 companies of all time and is trusted by the world’s largest publishers and advertisers, including News Corp, Hearst, BuzzFeed, Penske Media, Future plc, The Guardian, Vox Media, Insider, Hubert Burda Media and Condé Nast International.

About the Role...

Permutive is expanding our engineering team further and we are looking for a Scala Engineer to join our Activations team.

You'll use a wide range of technologies to build the functionality that solves previously-impossible problems for our customers and helps them deliver value through our platform. You should be keen to own the process of building new product features and managing the whole development process, including coding, testing, deploying, and monitoring.

The wider context

We’re 45+ engineers working to build an outstanding engineering culture so that everyone who joins has the opportunity and the support to do the best work of their life. Small, autonomous teams are important to us, and we want to empower everyone to make — and be accountable for— decisions through ownership.

Everything we build has to scale: our platform handles more requests each day than there are new tweets and Google searches, and each month we see more than a billion users.

The Activations team

Permutive enables Publishers to extract value from their audiences by building Cohorts — groupings of users according to their behaviour — which power privacy-compliant ad targeting through a process we call activation. The Activations team is focused on maximising value for Publishers and Advertisers through the cohort activation process.

Within the team, we will be working on product features that directly impact the customer. To deliver these we will have to work across a wide array of domains and technologies including our client-side SDK; building APIs; and integrating with third party systems.

As a member of a new team in a rapidly growing company, the ideal candidate will demonstrate technical proficiency as well as high-level problem solving skills and an appetite to learn about the AdTech domain.

Accordingly, we are looking for a candidate with experience in the following:

  • Scala (with an ability or interest to work within the Typelevel ecosystem)
  • Working in a product-focused role
  • Integrating with 3rd party systems

As a bonus, it would also be beneficial if the candidate had experience in any of the following:

  • Ad Tech
  • Typescript
  • Prometheus and Grafana
  • GCP
  • Kubernetes
  • Kafka

Salary

We take a structured, objective approach to salary-setting, which is based on market information, our compensation strategy, and your experience and capability as assessed through our interview process.

For a typical candidate with strong Scala experience plus most of our requirements we would likely pay £80,000 + options.

For a candidate with a breadth of experience, and who meets several of our bonus criteria, we’d pay up to £115,000 + options.

Benefits:

  • Stock options
  • Parental Leave Policy entitling new parents up to 26 weeks of leave on full pay
  • Everyone has an annual learning budget of £2,400 which we encourage you to use to level up
  • Time to rest and relax with unlimited paid leave (minimum expectation of 25 days annually)
  • Extensive training and development opportunities
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Automatic enrolment into our pension scheme from day one
  • Free access to Spill, our mental health partners
  • The equipment and technology you need to be successful, plus a generous working from home stipend upon joining
