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 Engineering Leader capable of driving our innovative approach forward, making Tumblr an even better platform of expression for our advertisers, driving an even more meaningful experience for our users.
What You'll Do:
Lead a department which has technical responsibilities across most areas of Tumblr – web, mobile, scalable backend services, and a deep focus on data and optimization.
Improve our existing advertising platforms and help drive innovation, while keeping in mind the sensibilities of Tumblr’s user community.
Represent Tumblr from a technical perspective with all external partners, like advertisers, brand managers, and strategic research firms.
Foster and grow the engineering culture on existing teams, emphasizing empathy, collaboration, innovation, and quality.
What We’re Looking For:
A heightened sense of ownership.
A strong eye for design, and an affection for simplicity.
A firm understanding of the current advertising landscape.
A deep technical foundation and an insatiable curiosity to keep learning.
Experience in leading and mentoring talented engineers, and engineering managers.
A proven track record of delivering complex software projects and and experience with highly-scaled distributed systems.
