Awesome Software Engineer - Senior Java Developer - Ad Platforms

We are looking for a Java engineer with a background building scalable advertising systems. Our product, TubeMogul PlayTime®, is the first video-focused ad platform of its kind, allowing brands to reach large but highly targeted audiences.

You will work with a small team of talented engineers who are well versed in Java and the surrounding ecosystem of open-source technologies like Hadoop, Hbase and other things starting with “H”.

TubeMogul is a revenue-generating, top-tier VC-funded startup with an impressive user-base and a proven sales model. The company is built from the ground up to be a profitable business, not a quick flip. Our culture is one of ownership, accountability and living up to promises. As such, employees take the lead when it comes to company culture.

• Actively participate and/or drive architecture and design discussions
