Job Overview

You’ll join our Data Science Engineering (DSE) Optimizations Team reporting to one of our DSE managers.

In addition, this team is responsible for another system that automatically adjusts budgets across our clients’ campaign portfolios to achieve high-level objectives for their marketing strategies. Engineers on this team improve and scale these internal optimization algorithms with their deep understanding of mathematics, statistics, and experimental design. If you have a desire to build automated systems that manage the bulk of the revenue of the company, then this is the team for you!

NextRoll engineers are afforded significant autonomy. We take ownership of our systems, and design and improve them as we see fit. We proactively propose new improvements and changes that benefit and impact multiple systems across engineering teams, always taking into account that systems must be reliable and work at a large scale.

This role is open in our San Francisco, New York, Salt Lake City offices, or Remote.
