At The Trade Desk, we’re on a mission to keep the internet open for everyone. Our media-buying platform helps advertisers reach their audiences — and helps websites and media platforms fund the journalism and content their consumers love. Every day, our engineers work to improve and evolve our technology while maintaining a clear focus on our end goal of fueling the open internet ecosystem.
With up to 11 million queries per second and SLAs in the milliseconds, we're tackling data and software challenges at massive scale. Our engineers build and own infrastructure and features that combine petabytes of data, high-performance computing concepts, best-in-breed distributed systems, and large-scale data processing systems into one of the top advertising platforms in the world.
We’re always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and evaluating the latest, biggest new technologies. But we hire for aptitude, not specific tech experience — proficiency in these tools isn’t a requirement. Our team is well-versed in technologies including:
- Realtime processing - C#/.Net / Aerospike / Windows & Linux
- Data processing - SQL Server / AWS / S3 / SQS / Kafka / Flink / SparkData
- Warehousing and storage - Vertica / Vertica Eon / SQL Server / Snowflake
- Frontend - SQL Server / AWS / React / Redux
- Monitoring - In-house telemetry with Prometheus, Grafana
WHERE YOU FIT IN
At The Trade Desk, our engineers take full ownership of their work. Everyone has a voice, and a good idea can take flight regardless of its origins. On our team, you’ll work with incredibly smart people. There’s never a shortage of interesting problems to solve — or a limit on the technologies or languages you can use, provided you can make a case for them.
Finally, while our platform operates at unprecedented scale, we’ve built something even stronger and more valuable: a team culture based on empathy, collaboration, and ownership — and an environment that will challenge you and make you a better engineer.
