Reports to: Backend Lead / CTO

Jumbleberry is looking for an experienced Engineer to help bring our next-generation Media-Buying platform to market.

We build analytics pipelines, recommendation engines, distributed systems, and killer front ends that have powered more than $500M in revenue over the past few years. Our team is small but effective and looking for some new faces who don’t shy away from challenges and have a relentless desire for self-improvement. Everyone excels in different areas, and we’ll let you choose what those are for you – we just ask that you bring your best.
