TapInfluence is redefining how companies connect with consumers. We’re funded, growing fast and seeking someone who embodies our Anchor Tenants: Grit, Authentic, Agile, Valuable, and Accountable to help us grow our team--we’re looking to double in size this year alone.
Advertising is drowning, and disruptive tactics like banner ads, pop-ups, interstitials, and instant-play videos have destroyed consumer trust. We’re poised to disrupt the broken industry and help brands get heard again. With our software platform, brands leverage powerful social influencers through blogs, Instagram, YouTube, and other channels to distribute valuable content—not self-serving ads—to targeted consumer audiences.

You’ll own your work and create far-reaching impact. With this platform, you will fix advertising.
What We’re Looking For:
- Agile, outspoken, passionate experts who hunger for a challenge, share a commitment to reaching the highest level of success and helping others do the same
- Production experience with Apache Spark, Scala and related technologies moving “big data” through a real-time analytics and ingestion pipeline
- Firm grasp of data science principles: basic (basic data cleansing, regressions, bayesian, logic model selection, basic gradient descent) and advanced (clustering - beyond “just k-means,” deeper machine learning, NLP, advanced algorithms).
- Production experience with scale, clustering, concurrency, JVM memory model
Our Commitment to You:
- True ownership over your work: you’re empowered in your impact and we won’t cripple you with micromanagement
- Above-market compensation: cash, equity, and a generous bonus structure
- Competitive benefits: top-of-the-line equipment, stimulating office space, catering, 401K, and quality medical/dental/vision care
- Offices in Mountain View, CA, Boulder, CO and Denver, CO
