We’ve taken a novel approach to advertising. Rather than being segregated in terms of look and feel or functionality, ads are first-class citizens in the Tumblr-verse, and can be acted on in the same manner as any post on the site. We’re looking for an experienced Full Stack Engineer to help in making our ad system an even better platform of expression for our advertisers and a meaningful experience for our users.
What You'll Do:
Make new things. Make old things better. You know, development.
Improve our existing ad products and build innovate new ones, while keeping in mind the sensibilities of Tumblr’s user community.
Contribute to the Ads Engineering effort, by building innovative ad products and supporting the ad infrastructure such as Analytics, tracking and performance.
Collaborate with the rest of our small, talented team of designers and engineers on the above.
Own a feature from its inception through the design process, development, debugging, release, and celebration.
Clearly communicate the status of your projects to internal stakeholders and raise concerns early so any challenges can be quickly addressed.
What We’re Looking For:
A deep understanding of the current technical advertising landscape and toolset.
Experience building / implementing native ads on web and mobile products. Preferably in social media or a large consumer facing mobile product.
A strong eye for design, and an affection for simplicity.
