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.

  • You understand engineering fundamentals. At our scale, many off-the-shelf techniques and existing technologies (open source and enterprise) simply don't work. You are able to work from first principles to evaluate solutions and adapt them to a unique environment. 

  • You are a broadly skilled Software Engineer accustomed todeveloping web services. You have experiencebuilding always-on systems, working across avariety of technologies and service layers.
