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.

Our Software Engineers are end-to-end owners who could participate in many aspects of designing, building, and delivering data-focused products for our stakeholders. 

At The Trade Desk, we believe in building the backend infrastructure of our platform with a focus on quality at scale. Whether we are building parts of our client-facing applications, internal custom solutions for our own team members, or model pipelines for bidding optimizations, we are making sure that we have infrastructure, development, and tools to do it right and efficiently.

Our system performs every day, 24/7, serving global traffic. We build a distributed system in a highly collaborative environment, utilizing a broad range of technologies. Our backend developers work on finding solutions to algorithmic, optimization, and scale challenges in everything we do.

Who you are:

Our culture is much deeper than just having fun together (though we do that well, too). We take pride in our engineers being trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and gritty pursuers of excellence. You do not have to meet all the requirements below, but we believe that people who meet most of them will have a higher likelihood of succeeding in this role:

  • You have 3+ years of software development, engineering experience. A strong coding background.  At our scale we are not interested in “boutique” manual management of servers and software. This is an engineer position. You code with languages such as C#, Python, Go, Java, C++.

  • You have a Bachelor’s/Master’s level degree in computer science or relevant engineering-related field or equivalent experience. Not everyone has the same level of access to opportunities. What is most important to us is what and how you can contribute, which is why our consideration is not limited by the level of education you have.

  • The ideal candidate will have experience with CI/CD tooling like Gitlab, Github, Bamboo, Circle CI and Argo CD.

  • A proven understanding of developer workflows and processes, such as git, common git workflows, testing, and dependency management.

  • Own a passion for efficient operations.  Significant contributions to large and impactful technical projects. The ability to think beyond just the task at hand to deeply understand the 'why' behind what you are doing.
