Intent Media, New York City

Predictive Analytics

Intent Media isn’t your usual company. Our work is powered by the premise that every person at Intent Media is unique, possessing a distinct set of skills, personality and passions.  We embrace our collective talents to tackle technical challenges, refine our successfully disruptive business ideas and co-create one of the most human and inspiring work cultures out there. We are a team of collaborators, valuing and rewarding shared success over individual heroics.

As a Senior Data Engineer at Intent Media you’ll code and innovate on products that are changing the e-commerce industry. Our engineering teams help the world’s leading travel companies to serve tens of millions of ads every day around the world. These ads provide an exceptional user experience to help shoppers find and compare prices, while simultaneously increasing brand profitability.

In our engineering work we balance cutting-edge technologies with industry-proven practices. Our polyglot approach means you will see a variety of languages, libraries, and databases. Our agile way of working is founded on many years of experience; you will be working with accomplished innovators in the software community.

What You Will Do:

We believe that engineers are most effective when they are involved with the whole lifecycle of software development: conceiving new features designing and coding the change, testing, deploying, and support. Don't worry if you don't know how to do everything at first - you'll learn the essentials through mob & pair programming with experienced engineers on your team. This role is with the Data Platform team, where you'll build out systems that handle the ingestion, processing, aggregation, storage, and reporting of billions of events each day.

About You:

Intent Media is looking for bright and ambitious software engineers to bring their fresh perspective to our team of thoroughly awesome humans and dogs.   

  • You’re motivated to work on a very collaborative team.
  • You have experience with at least one common functional programming language (Scala, Clojure, etc).
  • You have experience with at least one common object-oriented language (Java, Ruby, Python, etc).
  • You have experience with distributed data pipeline / processing tools (Kinesis, Kafka, Spark, Hadoop, etc)
  • You have experience with databases and SQL.
  • You possess a solid grounding in computer science including algorithms and data structures.
  • You are familiar with Test Driven Development and treat your test code with same respect as production code.
  • You are familiar with infrastructure automation tools (Terraform, Packer, Ansible, etc). 
  • You prefer to work on all aspects of delivering working software, including analysis, design, automated testing, CI/CD, operations and support.
  • You have 5-7 years of related experience
