Perfect Audience (YC S11) Looking for Full Stack Engineers
on Feb 11, 2013 | hide
Come build the advertising platform marketers love. Perfect Audience (YC S11) is looking for awesomely talented developers to help us build the best retargeting platform. We're on a mission to make real-time bidding effortless and effective for companies of all sizes, not just the big guys with huge budgets. Broad swaths of the digital ad industry rely on obfuscation and scarcity of information. We're fighting that by making complex but easy-to-use tools that solve real problems.


We launched just 10 weeks ago and have grown at an explosive rate since then. We're a small team that pushes new code every day and listens carefully to the many hundreds of professionals using our tools to learn how to make them better.

We enjoy database design, code that scales, application logic, and standards-based frontends. We are always looking for more smart generalists to come join us. Our applications process billions of transactions every month. This is a chance to work on every facet of a successful web app and grow your engineering skillset.

What we are looking for:

- Solid software development foundation

- Ability to architect, develop, and test key infrastructure

- Understanding of performance and design tradeoffs, without compromising quality

- Experience scaling up webapps and services for rapid growth is a plus

We offer a generous salary and equity grant, free lunches, your choice of snacks in the kitchen, and a desk in our sunny, beautiful office in downtown San Francisco. We believe that a diversity of backgrounds leads to better product and are looking for the best people to come help us make marketing easier for everyone.
