What you'll do:

You start as a Senior and progress to Principal Engineer within the first 6 months (or faster). 

In the first month:

  • You get to know the team and get familiar with our product, technologies, systems, processes and practices.
  • You absorb our engineering culture, start coding and ramp-up quickly within the Adverity universe.

In the first 3 months:

  • Your focus is on acquiring as much product knowledge as possible. You get to know the Adverity architecture and codebase inside-out. 
  • You work independently on all Adverity related topics and act as a knowledge sharing hub inside the team. 
  • You are able to support the team with deep code reviews, guide towards better system quality and engineering practices.

In the first 6 months:

  • You build strong connections within and outside of the Engineering Team: Engineers, Product Managers, UX Designers, Customer Support, etc.
  • You participate in shaping new features, get your hands dirty in PoCs, break down technical scopes and start working cross-team.

Beyond the first 6 months

  • At this point, you know the Adverity platform very well, both product and tech.
  • You are a technical leader.
    Drive strategic cross-product engineering initiatives and guide teams towards pragmatic technical decisions based on a limited context, striving to constantly improve maintainability and reliability.
  • You are an impact multiplier.
    Foster a culture of excellence: outcomes-oriented solutions, incremental value delivery with good predictability on commitments, high technical quality, extensive testing, thorough monitoring, performance & security built-in.
    Coach, mentor and sponsor other engineers to become their best selves through deep code reviews, pair programming and knowledge sharing sessions.
  • You are an escalation point.
    Drive incident responses, help out in diagnosing complex issues and shape operational excellence.
  • You are a role model.
    Represent engineering outside of the company and actively participate in the hiring process.
 

What you’ll need:

  • A deep understanding of how everything web-related works. You have vast work experience in building world-class user interfaces. You have seen and run things in the production with a focus on performance: web application speed and handling large datasets on the client-side is your daily bread.
  • React and TypeScript expertise. You are proficient with industry standards, best practices, and design patterns. You keep up-to-date with the frontend technology ecosystem: (1) you understand how frontend frameworks work and what problems they aim to solve, (2) you know how to choose between hype-only and fit-for-purpose technologies.
  • Ability to perform deep code reviews. Beyond checking the correctness and cleanness of code, you’re able to connect the dots and focus on the bigger picture.
  • Experience in diagnosing complex systems - performance, monitoring, logging, tracing.
  • Team spirit and previous experience in a technical leading role. You supported multiple teams at the same time (ideally in a cross-functional setup) and synchronized them on the technical roadmap.
  • Soft skills. Over-communication comes natural to you. You are a good listener. You know how to advocate, persuade and negotiate with the team. You enjoy writing things down to synthesise information. During your career you successfully mentored and coached engineers.
  • A curious mind and fast learning skills. You have an appetite for continuous learning and you know when and how to dig deeper.
  • Ability to make time-based decisions. You have a bias for action and believe in technical pragmatism.

Nice to have:

  • Kaizen approach.
  • Product knowledge: marketing and tooling for marketers, agencies and advertisers.
