As the real-time pulse of the Internet, Quantcast runs the world’s largest AI-driven insights and measurement platform directly quantifying over 100 million web destinations. Using machine learning to drive human learning, Quantcast provides brand marketers and publishers with meaningful audience insights, predictive targeting and measurement solutions across the customer journey.

At the core of Quantcast is a real-time bidding system that addresses advertising opportunities across the open internet. This system processes over 4 million bid opportunities per second, where each bid opportunity must be evaluated and responded to in under 100ms (including transit time).

We are looking for experienced engineer managers with a real passion to lead a team of engineers on high scale, low latency internet products.

As a leader on the Pixel Service, you are responsible for a team that develops and operates one of the most important and sophisticated systems at Quantcast.

Responsibilities:
  • Scale the Pixel Service to drive business outcomes while controlling costs
  • Work closely with principals engineers to develop, circulate, and execute on a technical roadmap
  • Develop strong relationships with your customers in order to anticipate and meet their needs
  • Coach and develop the members of your team from both a technical and soft skill perspective
  • Build a well-balanced team by partnering with talent acquisition
Requirements:
  • 5+ years of engineering experience, 3+ years experience in engineering management, developing technically strong teams
  • Experience developing and operating real time low latency, high volume distributed systems
  • Experience with all phases of software development (design, development, test, operations, end-of-life)
  • Experience building and operating distributed systems on one of the major cloud platforms
  • The ideal candidate would have hands-on experience with either Real Time Bidding (RTB) in AdTech space, High Frequency Trading (HFT) systems, or something of similar scale.
