Commitment Permanent
Team Research & Development

We’re looking for a lead software engineer to join Smartly.io’s Media Intelligence team. The team builds data science products to save our customer’s time and improve their advertising efficiency while decreasing the amount of manual work needed to monitor their ad campaigns and optimize their ad spend.

Together with your peers, you will develop our optimization products in an agile environment while closely collaborating with supporting teams and occasionally also our end users – the largest online marketers globally. To get an idea of the machine learning models the Media Intelligence team is using in our products, see for example, these blog posts: How We Productized Bayesian Revenue Estimation with Stan, Optimizing Conversions with Predictive Budget Allocation or Automated Statistical Significance Calculator for A/B Testing.

We use Python, TypeScript, PostgreSQL, Node.js, Docker and Kubernetes as the base for our model training and microservices that we spin up in the backend, TypeScript and React in the frontend of our products and rely on Github Actions for CI/CD.
