Job Description

The Trade Desk is a global technology company with a mission to create a better, more open internet for everyone through principled, intelligent advertising. Handling over 1 trillion queries per day, our platform operates at an unprecedented scale. We have also built something even stronger and more valuable: an award-winning culture based on trust, ownership, empathy, and collaboration. We value the unique experiences and perspectives that each person brings to The Trade Desk, and we are committed to fostering inclusive spaces where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work every day.

Do you have a passion for solving hard problems at scale? Are you eager to join a dynamic, globally-connected team where your contributions will make a meaningful difference in building a better media ecosystem? Come and see why Fortune magazine consistently ranks The Trade Desk among the best small-medium-sized workplaces globally.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other minorities tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every single point above, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.

We have a highly productive technology team that enjoy a collaborative work environment that has involvement in end to end delivery of scalable technology solutions. We have a mindset of build it, ship it, own it.  Our teams are empowered to use the best tools and technologies for the job. We have a multi-cloud environment and we are going towards the micro-services architecture.

  • We develop our client facing products utilising .Net/.Net Core, Javascript (React), gRPC, REST API’s, Docker containers and Kubernetes. 

  • Our Software Engineers are end-to-end owners. You will participate actively in all aspects of designing, building, and delivering products for our client

  • Cloud-based platform experience (AWS, Azure or Aliyun) preferred (not essential)

  • Understanding of designing web-basedand micro-services architecturepreferred (not essential)

Key Attributes

  • What and how you can contribute is what's important to us. Our consideration is not limited by the kind of education you have or the specific technologies you have experience with. Variety of technical challenge is one of the best things about working at The Trade Desk as an engineer, but we do not expect you to know every technology we use when you start. What we care about is that you can learn quickly and solve complex problems using the best tools for the job.

  • You are a creative thinker, not bound by "the way things have always been done". What you know is less important than how well you learn and innovate. We don't need engineers who know all the answers; we need engineers who can invent the answers no one has thought of yet, to the questions yet to be asked. 

What we Offer:

You will also get the opportunity, depending on your interests and aptitude, to work on large-scale distributed systems coordinating thousands of servers in cloud and physical data centers around the world, petabyte-scale data challenges, machine learning, advanced visualizations, and interactive user interfaces.

There are a ton of reasons why TTD is a phenomenal company to work for, but here are the top 6 that we think you'll find most interesting:

  • We are a globally collaborative environment. You will have the opportunity to work with brilliant & diverse teams from all over the world 

  • We celebrate continuous learning at TTD – here you will have opportunities to be sponsored for further education, certifications and we also have an in-house learning platform to support your further development

  • Our culture - We have a wonderful team of brilliant high achievers built on a culture of empathy, grit, collaboration, & ownership. We are an award-winning company – we have won ‘Great Place to Work’ awards across Australia, US, UK, Europe and Asia!

  • We offer an attractive compensation package, flex work environment, beautiful offices with all the perks that you're used to (snacks, catered lunches, wine, beer), competitive equity, and an employee stock purchasing plan. We IPO'ed 5 yrs ago, with our stock price growing by 1000% in such a short time. The ad-tech industry represents a unique growth opportunity – it's currently only making up for about 2% of the overall $600B advertising industry. As we like to say here, "We're only 2% done!" Join us and help us tackle the other 98%!

  • We promote an environment of reward and recognition – At TTD, you will be recognised for your efforts and for each anniversary at TTD, we will celebrate you, and reward you for your contribution!

  • We promote an inclusive and diverse environment – we have many events and activities that truly make TTD a ‘Great Place to Work’ and promote inclusivity and diversity across our organisation.
