sr. software developer at flytedesk

When we first started, we figured we’d build a simple way to aggregate a few different types of media on college campuses, plug it into existing demand sources, and boom – profit. It wasn’t that easy.

We built the ecosystem we wanted to see, and what emerged is a minor miracle. While the rest of the media industry is being decimated… we’ve created a business model that’s actually working.

We build three main things: the core platform (infrastructure, databases, and internal tools), a publisher platform (that colleges use to manage their ad inventory), and DSP (that buyers use to select/buy/measure inventory). Our goal is that you come in and understand all three, and then move into a tech lead position when we split into teams dedicated to each component.

The right candidate will be comfortable learning quickly, thoughtful about the impact of what they’re building, solution-oriented, non-dogmatic, committed to excellence, excited to communicate with stakeholders across the business, and intent on building something big for a community that deserves it.
