We’re looking for an experienced backend-oriented developer to join our reporting focused team called Bobby Tables. Our number-crunching service aggregates data from multiple sources within and outside Smartly.io making it one of the most data-heavy parts of the application. Customers can analyze performance of their ad campaigns by using the flexible report builder and data visualizer tool our team has developed.

Besides providing a customer-facing interface to the online analytical processing (OLAP) system that allows it to run complex analysis, the service offers programmatic access to the Reporting engine powering such features as automated actions and automated budget optimizations. The challenges lie in different areas: the scale of the database (several terabytes of data), complexity of database queries powered by flexible query language exposed as REST API, having numerous stakeholders both on client and data ingestion sides (Smartly.io teams and 3-party integrations to performance aggregation services such as Google Analytics). The data structures have been evolving from being focused on one ad serving channel to being abstract cross-channel.

Technologies we use are PostgreSQL with Citus extension, Ruby with some Rails gems, RabbitMQ. Campaigns Overview is built using React. Besides, we have several Node.js-powered services to simplify data ingestion. We use TypeScript to generate JavaScript code.

As a Software Engineer you will…

  • Work on making Campaign Overview and Reporting solution more self-served for Smartly.io teams | Enable other Smartly.io teams to send data and generate reports
  • Plan, implement and support the improvements to our Reporting engine both in the backend and in the frontend
  • Collaborate with Designer, Senior Engineer, Engineering Manager, Product Manager within your team to gather requirements and provide necessary context
  • Help our customers directly and indirectly to unleash the power of Reporting engine to optimize their business performance

What we are looking for:

  • Having 3+ years of experience in backend development
  • Agility to write efficient code in different languages and paradigms - we mainly use Ruby in non-Rails way, Nest, koa, and a bit of PHP in the backend and React in the frontend
  • Strong background in developing complex backend systems
  • Understanding of challenges in larger engineering organizations (200+ developers)
  • Self-driven attitude, willingness to touch business context

What we offer you:

Our projects are a part of the DNA of our product, which means that every team will have some skin in the game. Your work will have a direct impact our customers and our business. You will own your work, and we will support you in that ownership. We value work life balance and have a strong culture that we hope all of our Smartlies bring their own flavour to. As a company we provide a competitive salary, option package and a generous package of benefits.
