About This Job:

Are you ready to tackle big challenges and help push our technology forward? We’re looking for leaders that will develop creative solutions, and help drive the process. At Intent Media, our engineers are more than coders - everyone has the opportunity to come up with new ideas, to shape the future of our company. Are you an innovative software engineer with skills equivalent to 5 – 7 years of Java or Ruby experience? Do you want to be a key member of a vibrant, fast-moving and incredibly driven team that knows how to have fun? We’re building our team from 14 to 21 this year. Join us!

About Our Product

We’re shaking up the e-commerce industry with a big idea: enabling e-commerce publishers to monetize the 97% of visitors who aren’t buying on their sites. Our technology analyzes hundreds of millions of data points to determine consumer intent. This allows us to deliver incredibly relevant content that maximizes revenue for our customers.

About our Agile Engineering Process

We believe in short iterations, daily releases, and working in small teams to solve hard problems. We work directly with product managers and product owners to iron out a plan before we begin our work, and we build things iteratively while constantly communicating our progress. We work on big data problems, high performance ad serving, and challenging front-end Javascripts – sometimes all on the same day. Love your job? Our employees enjoy coming to work, and we let them know they're valued. Our vibrant team accomplishes a lot every day, and our management insists upon work/life balance so that we never become stale. We infuse fun and learning time into our days and our vacation policy includes a minimum, but no maximum. Walk into our office and you'll likely find some of us working quietly on challenging projects, a couple of us pairing, someone playing with one of the dogs in the office, and maybe one of our teams out of the office for an off-site work session. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we take our work very seriously. We believe that in order for our employees to produce at their top level, they need to have intimate access to strategic decisions. Our flat structure and open communication allow for innovation from all levels – ideas flow freely.
