adjoe is a leading mobile ad platform developing cutting-edge advertising and monetization solutions that take its app partners’ business to the next level.

Meet Your Team: Anti-Fraud Solutions

Industry experts report that 20 percent of global mobile ad spend can be identified as fraud. adjoe’s Anti-Fraud team has both validated this number and prevented fraudulent users from entering partners’ ad spend.

The team’s software includes two major components.
1) A distributed backend system that provides different interfaces to partners, modern cloud infrastructure, and a dashboard to visualize insights.
2) A unique mobile SDK that analyzes device features to detect modifications.

With no one-size-fits-all solution, the Anti-Fraud team works with a large set of features. From detecting attempts based on data with static patterns, using proprietary solutions to detect software manipulation, marking network traffic abnormalities, and identifying when to warn or even block requests.

Join a team that is excited about the latest technologies and is highly interested in data, security, cloud computing, and mobile operating systems. Not to mention a team that celebrates many awards for leading the way in fraud prevention.
What You Will Do:
  • Contribute to the development of our anti-fraud backend written +99% in Go and maintain our microservice architecture used to communicate with our frontend (based on TypeScript React). To do this, you’ll use event buses like Kafka, SQS/SNS, and Kinesis in order to have a reliable asynchronous microservice communication.#
  • Work in a community of developers with whom you’ll share knowledge and contribute to peer code reviews.
  • Work with modern databases such as DynamoDB to deliver few-millisecond response times.
  • Continuously improve our fraud detection systems to stay on top of changes in the Android platform.
  • Investigate the most novel and uncommon fraud complaints from our advertisers and publishers.
  • Be responsible for collecting the billions of daily API events and aggregating them in our Kafka and Kinesis streams with the goal of querying them from the data lake in a matter of seconds.
  • Be part of an international English-speaking team dedicated to scaling our AdTech platform beyond our hundreds of millions of monthly active users.
  • Who You Are:
  • You gained several years of experience as a Software Architect / Senior Software Developer
  • You have an outstanding experience with PHP, Java, Go or C# applied in a professional backend environment
