Job Description

Tumblr launched in 2007 with the belief that people need a place to say what they want, be who they want, and connect over what they love. We continue to build out Tumblr as a platform for free expression, individuality, and human connection. That's why we need smart, humble, funny people to keep Tumblr growing. We're big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter. Come work with us.

In this role, you'll build creative new ad products to be featured on Tumblr's web experience. Ad products on Tumblr will be built to optimize user engagement, reduce intrusiveness, and generate revenue for Tumblr's sponsors. You will join this team as the most senior of 2-3 JavaScript engineers. You'll use your technical expertise and draw on many years of experience to craft user-facing, performant, well-tested, and easily maintained advertising products. You'll be a mentor and teacher to new web engineers as they join the monetization team. You'll also have the opportunity to grow and learn from the experts on our Core Web and other product teams who you'll work with on a regular basis.

What you'll do

Monetization Engineering is looking for an outstanding senior JavaScript engineer who wants to tackle the following challenges:

* Collaborate with other web product teams at Tumblr to re-write the web experience at Tumblr.


* Represent monetization engineering in architecture planning and technical decision-making for Tumblr's new web experience.


* Build native ad products that are engaging to users.


* Build advertiser tools for making, trafficking, and analyzing advertiser campaigns on Tumblr.


* Maintain and improve front end analytics technology to help advertisers understand the value of their advertisements.


* Help Tumblr realize its full revenue potential.



Who we're looking for

An ideal team member is someone with:

* Strong JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 fundamentals


* An ability to independently drive projects


* Dreams to innovate and bring new things into the world


* A strong sense of pragmatism and the ability to decide what's "good enough" (and when to iterate)


* Working knowledge of modern API design patterns and principles


* Some experience working server-side


* An understanding of code quality, unit test coverage, and site performance


* Motivation to directly improve the business's bottom line


* Empathy and the desire to elevate those around them


* The belief that it is just as much about the journey as the destination



Tools We Use

* Javascript, ReactJS, Typescript, SCSS, Webpack


* PHP 7.0+, PHPUnit, Python, Go


* MySQL, Memcached, and Varnish


* Hive, Hadoop, Kafka, Druid


* Git and GitHub


* Jira and Confluence
