Senior Python Developer
Industries: Mobile, Internet, Online, Digital, Media, Technology
As mobile continues to move “beyond the banner” marketers are increasingly looking to companies who specialize in the mobile and connected device space; our client’s work exclusively in the connected device space. They think that any firm that passively participates in mobile to supplement their core business is not devoting enough time to be a true expert in the space. They are looking for smart people; people who are intelligent and proactive enough to learn an industry that is moving 10x as fast as any other medium. They are interested in people who know that their mobile phone is becoming the converter of their life and who are enthusiastic about immersing themselves in this culture. They are interested in people who know the media world is increasingly moving towards a “release based culture;” one based on innovation, technology, and product development.
They are currently seeking a Senior Python Developer to lead the design and the on-going development of our next generation state of the art mobile advertising platform. We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person, who is used to a startup culture ready to take on the challenge of building out a platform that already connects many high profile mobile developers and publishers to the world’s leading agencies and brands. You must be a self-starter and willing to work hard to drive the rapid iterative innovation of the product. You will be rewarded with the unique opportunity to work with great talent and leading edge technology.
As part of a small highly motivated team, you will have the opportunity to design and develop innovative technology solutions for Canada’s leading mobile advertising company.
