Lead JavaScript Developer for SSP

About team and product

Adform Supply Side Platform (SSP) is a young and ambitious product empowering top web-sites to monetize their operations by conducting real-time advertising auctions during page loads (RTB). We keep our operations fast and reliable: we handle about 30 000 real-time auctions per second, we have datacenters around the Globe (Europe, US, Asia). We have a complex metadata domain which is managed by a set of Single Page Applications each isolated to manage data in its bounded context and powered by individual microservices.

SSP Tech stack:

Single Page Applications on frontend. 50/50 .NET/Scala on backend, Microservices architecture, API first approach. Frameworks: company-wide we have tried most industry-standard JS Frameworks, including, Angular JS (1,2), Knockout, Backbone, Aurelia, ReactJS, etc. In SSP we currently have most of the codebase on Angular (1.3 and 1.6) and ReactJS, however we're in the process of evaluating current industry-standard JS Frameworks to select and adopt a right stack of libraries for our next-gen UI implementations.

As an SSP UI developer you're supposed to be an active contributor to these projects as long as support and gradually improve/rewrite existing UI applications. Current most-used UI stack: Angular (1.x), Karma, Gulp, Moment.js, Socket.io, jQuery, SystemJS, etc.

We’re looking for a passionate developer to lead our UI sub-team.

You’ll contribute to SSP and Adform-wide frontended architecture, so you’ll have to actively participate in deciding how things are done and distributed between components.
