About the Team

We are a small team that emphasizes on moving fast and delivering impactful products through technical excellence. Our tech stack varies from a highly scalable and available architecture, processing more than 10K API requests per second, to big data processing and data analytics with 1.5B events per day. The team is focused on building out the next generation of eCommerce products to serve publishers on the Web with cutting-edge technologies and algorithms including advanced implementations of Cassandra, Kafka, Spark and Natural Language Processing (NLP), among many others.

About the Job

Our Commerce team works on our core suite of products and scales our infrastructure to meet increasing demands of new traffic.

  • Contribute software engineering best practices and technical excellence through code reviews and mentorship of junior engineers
  • Demonstrate end-to-end ownership of projects and initiatives

About You

 About Sovrn

We spend a great deal of our time online. Whether it’s for information, commerce, or entertainment, each of us has come to depend on what we research, discover, and share. Publishers – those who create and curate content – are what makes the Internet great. Yet these publishers practice their craft largely alone, in silos – without reference points or insightful understanding about where they sit in the grand scheme of things. To add to the challenge, once a Publisher’s content is in the wild, then the task of building engagement, growing a loyal following and enriching the engagement with that following can sometimes feel like shots in the dark or worse, a black box. Moreover, making money from their craft can be a complex task for any independent publisher who might prioritize generating content first and money second.

Sovrn believes that independent publishers are the Internet's vibrancy. As a partner and advocate to tens of thousands of independent publishers, Sovrn provides tools, technologies and services that help publishers (a) make money; (b) get distribution to grow their audience; and (c) access a massive data commons providing extraordinary insights.

The landscape of content networks, adtech vendors, and the myriad of buy-side / sell-side companies can be a complete maze for any reasonable person to decipher. Sovrn cuts through the noise and simplifies things with a basic, straightforward mission: 

Help storytellers do more of what they want to do – and less of what they don’t 

Sovrn is an Equal Opportunity Employer!

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Great ideas can come from everybody with the right support and space. To this end, we hold an Innovation Week quarterly for all engineers.

We encourage creativity with a collaborative environment, POCs during planning phases, and aggressively maintaining tech debt.
