The Experiences Feature Services team owns and builds out all parts of the backend that powers our client facing applications. We are spearheading our transition to service-oriented architecture, and we are making sure that we have the tools to do it right and efficiently.
This team is responsible for building out ambitious high performance feature services (Recommendations, Alerts, Notifications, Troubleshooting) that allow us to help our clients achieve their goals by delivering the right data and information to them at the right time. Data and performance are the root of The Trade Desk’s success; therefore, this team is not only building out the product features but is also responsible for scaling up these services for our long-term success.
What you will do
- Help build out highly scalable and performant end-user services that will power our UI and API platforms

- Work with product managers to understand the business needs and help refine the approach that we take

- Ability to partner with cross-team stakeholders
- Experience with architectural patterns of large, high-scale data applications
- Understanding of distributed systems, data stores, data modeling, indexing and associated trade-offs
- Experience in architecture and development of scalable production quality backend systems

What We Care About:
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. Our culture runs much deeper than just having fun together (though, we do that well too…) – the people we want on our team are trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and gritty pursuers of excellence.
Does this sound like you? If so, we welcome your application and the chance to meet you.
