At seedtag our mission is to change how online advertising is done. We are looking for talented engineers to help us develop our technology and change the world of digital advertising together. The seedtag platform allows some of the largest online publishers to get the most out of their images. Our engineers face massive scalability challenges to be able to process millions of requests with very strict timing requirements. We apply machine learning algorithms to the content of every page to achieve human-like content understanding and provide the best possible ad contextualization in the industry.

Founded by two ex-Googlers in 2014, today we proudly count over 80 employees in 7 countries. We believe in high-quality and non-intrusive advertising content.

At seedtag we are committed to maintaining a culture where everyone can thrive and find meaning in their work. We are a young product-based company and we highly value cooperation.

You will be part of a diverse and multi-disciplined development team and help us push our technology forward.

As a member of our platform team you will help us shape and develop our architecture of microservices in NodeJS, using Docker and Kubernetes on Google Cloud Platform. Our systems serve thousands of requests per second for users all over the world, requiring both high performance and reliability. We use Apache Spark and MongoDB to analyse hundreds of thousands events per minute in real-time. All of this powers our frontend such as our ad-serving script, which is integrated into the pages of our clients.
