We're looking for an outstanding, first site reliability engineer to join our team at Viralspace and work on our mission to enable marketers to be driven by data, rather than guesswork. In addition to working across our technical stack, you will be architecting and building automation frameworks into our infrastructure. As a part of a small and cross-functional team, you'll have the opportunity to delve into other areas of the technology stack and build systems from the ground up. We are looking for a hands-on, self-starter who is hungry for growth, passionate about building innovative products, and excited to lead projects that will directly impact our unicorn and Fortune 500 clients to join our team.
What is Viralspace?
At Viralspace, you'll be joining a nimble startup backed by a much more established company on the path to IPO. We're a Bay Area-based startup that came out of Stanford and operated independently since 2019. We recently joined forces with Smartly.io, the leading social advertising tool, to lead their creative optimization efforts. Viralspace will remain a fully independent business line backed by all of the incredible resources, talents, and customers of Smartly.
The #1 factor that drives performance for digital ads is the creative, yet the creative decision-making process today is based on little more than guesswork. At Viralspace, we're changing that by using AI to help marketers make data-driven decisions about their ad creative. We use computer vision to tag millions of features across a brand's past ads, then present insights in a variety of AI-based software tools.
Smartly is on a mission to help advertisers unlock greater performance and creativity in social advertising by combining ad buying and creative automation. They have an established suite of ad buying and creative template tools loved by 700+ clients (across over $6.5B ad spend!), and are starting to move into creative optimization with Viralspace. Smartly is based in Helsinki but has satellite offices across the US, including San Francisco, where this role is based.
