Do you know modern web stacks from soup to nuts? Have strong opinions about clean URLs, dirty objects in ORMs, & know where MVC works versus where it doesnt? We want to talk to you!

Beeswax is an easy to use, massive scale & high availability advertising platform founded by industry veterans who worked together at Google. Were well funded by leading VCs, such as RRE & Foundry Group, & are rapidly expanding our customer list & our engineering team. We offer our customers the most extensible & transparent advertising system in the world & process millions of transactions per second.

Our engineers come from major tech companies such as Amazon & Facebook as well as many other companies with strong software disciplines. Building & selling great advertising software that were proud of is the absolute heart of our mission.

At our transaction volumes we regularly deal with scaling challenges as our tech grows & evolves. To manage the firehose of data coming in, we explore complex tradeoffs & carefully architect high performance distributed systems. Those in turn require elegant & thoughtfully designed APIs to make the systems accessible to both our team & our customers.

As our newest Web Engineer you will:

  • Work on the REST API & a JS application built on top of it that our customers use to configure our systems
  • Collaborate with engineers, product managers, designers & data scientists to evolve these services to provide new experiences for our customers as well as meet our ever-growing scale
  • Do fun tasks like reviewing code, writing design docs & closing JIRA tickets

Ideal candidates will have:

  • 2+ years of web engineering experience at strong software companies
  • Experience building JS heavy web applications in ideally more than one well known framework
  • Comfort with & an understanding of relational databases (we use Amazon Aurora)
  • A solid understanding of modern operational processes & concerns for web applications (deployment, provisioning, monitoring)
  • Experience with building & operating a modern REST API (ie. Swagger, monitoring, rate limiting, authentication, etc.) or using them from a client perspective
  • A strong grasp of software architecture (either through a degree or from learning it themselves)
  • An ability to think about & tackle problems analytically

Successful engineers at Beeswax have:

  • An ethic of service & a belief in putting the customer first
  • A powerful sense of pragmatism to figure out what needs to be done right versus right now
  • A curiosity about technology & a desire to use it to solve problems in all sorts of domains
  • An openness to feedback & more than just the spelling skills to know that theres no I in Team
  • An appreciation of repeatability, resilience, observability, & operational simplicity

We believe in using the right tools for the job so our products are built in a variety of languages including C++, Java, Javascript, Python & PHP. While engineers tend to specialize in their specific domains everyone on our team needs to have a solid understanding of computing fundamentals & modern approaches to building high scale & high quality software.
