  • Programmatic Supply
  • Full time
adjoe is a leading mobile ad platform developing cutting-edge advertising and monetization solutions that take its app partners’ business to the next level. Part of the applike group ecosystem, adjoe is home to an advanced tech stack, powerful financial backing from Bertelsmann, and a highly motivated workforce to be reckoned with.

Meet Your Team: Programmatic Supply

Did you know that in-app ads are sold in a real-time auction before they get rendered by adjoe’s Android and iOS SDK in thousands of mobile apps? 

It’s exactly for this that adjoe has built its own platform. Our backend system can simultaneously handle a few billion auctions in real time every day. It receives price bids for every ad impression via API from more than 20 different companies buying potential ad inventory. To handle this many requests, the Programmatic team constantly optimizes its Golang code – to improve memory efficiency and execution time.

Handling this much traffic on scale can also be pretty expensive, so the team introduced Protobuf and different compression options to decrease bandwidth use. The common CRUD DB Repository pattern can limit performance and scalability – so, our software design is based on event sourcing approaches leveraged by Apache Kafka and other streaming technologies. 
Join our discussions, explore implementation, and put your problem-solving skills to the test in our cross-functional Programmatic team.
What You Will Do:
  • Develop backend applications written in Go in order to support the development of our new programmatic advertising platform. You will be responsible for the seamless communication of the programmatic backend with other adjoe products, building new APIs to enable communication with the mobile frontend, and implementation of our real-time bidding algorithms.
  • Work closely with Terraform to implement infrastructure changes.
  • Collaborate with our Data Science team to solve complex math problems used to optimize our ML algorithms that are dedicated to delivering the right ads to the right users and integrate their solutions into adjoe’s application.
  • Be responsible for collecting the billions of daily API events and aggregating them in our Kafka streams with the goal of querying them from the data lake in a matter of seconds.
  • Work in a community of developers with whom you’ll share knowledge and contribute to peer code reviews.
  • 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 worked in software development for at least 2+ years
  • You have gained profound experience with building web applications in Go
  • Knowledge about databases and a basic understanding of Regular Expressions, HTTP protocol and Encoding
  • Experience working with infrastructure as code (Terraform), Docker and serverless infrastructure is a plus
