As an engineer at Smartly.io you get to tackle challenges of considerable scale and complexity. We develop our product at a fast pace and in close cooperation with the largest online businesses globally, including Uber and eBay.

What We Do


We build tools that help our customers work more effectively. Our product is at the core of how business is done today: it allows brands grow their business online, across platforms like Facebook, Pinterest and Google. We aim to automate much of the repetitive manual work to help them grow their sales, not headcount. Here you can dive deeper into some of the solutions our development teams are currently working on: Pivot Tables and Video Templates.

Video Templates — Automating Creative Work


Many of our customers sell thousands, if not millions, of products and creating advertisement videos for each product manually isn’t feasible. We created Video Templates that allow our customers automatically generate visually compelling personalized videos with a built-in video editor. Advertisers can fill a video template with product information from a CSV, XML or JSON feed and combine still and video assets to instantly create thousands of video ads.

Our team chose to build the video editor with React with Redux and Typescript. For our backend rendering service we used Node.js, Typescript and PostgreSQL. We built our rendering service as a small, independent microservice to enable fast iteration and development.

Pivot Tables — One View to Rule Them All



What the Pivot Tables essentially aims for is to eliminate the need for Excel in running campaign performance analytics. The solution allows our customers rely on a single view to analyze high volumes of campaign data, and make changes if needed. It will become the new core of our platform and pave the way for extending to multiple platforms, like Google and Pinterest.

Pivot Tables is built using React and modern web technologies on the frontend, and using Rails and PostgreSQL on the backend. The solution aims to cover all sorts of customer use cases, which means that we’re constantly learning as we work very close to the end users. Since we only support the last two Chrome versions in the product, we can use the newest web technologies which keeps the work interesting.

Technologies We Work With

 

Each team chooses their technologies, while keeping in mind the operational and cross-team collaboration aspects. In practice, we work with a bunch of different technologies, but each team only needs to know a subset of them. We don’t expect anyone to know all of the technologies we use beforehand, but knowing some of them will definitely help. Generally we’re trying to get new team members to play with their strengths, and choose their first team accordingly.

We're growing fast and hiring for a variety of profiles. We’re looking for T-shaped people, who have a good command of the basics, and be specialized in anything from databases to domain expertise, UX, agile process understanding, and so on. Our development teams have different needs, and we believe the best way to find a perfect match is through a conversation with you.
