Shaken or stirred?

The 1950s and 1960s saw the rise of the Madison Avenue
ad man — hello, Don Draper. While much has changed since the days of
three-martini lunches, advertisements are here to stay. Every magazine,
billboard, and commercial wants to sell something, but it’s online
advertising that’s truly tailored to the individual. Ever think about the
technology behind those “Sponsored Financial Content” ads? Our client does.

The leader in premium native advertising for technology, financial
services, and corporate and lifestyle sectors, our client is the power
behind the advertising throne for over 200 websites, including Forbes, Wall
Street Journal, CNN Business, and The Washington Post. Matching content to
the unique aesthetic of each site, advertisers distribute bright, shiny ads
to over 349 million consumers worldwide. Don Draper, eat your heart out.

Want to join these twenty-first century mad men (and women)? This dynamic
team is looking for a senior Perl programmer with a strong understanding of
Go programming language, paradigms, constructs, and idioms. Add in a
liberal dash of Python, experience with frameworks like Django, a solid
understanding of databases like MySQL and NoSQL databases like Google
BigTable, and you might be on your way to Madison Avenue (or London,
because that’s where this role is based).

Well-located in London, your new
office is within walking distance of Buckingham Palace. Tea with the Queen
sounds like a nice way to spend your lunch break, doesn’t it? If visiting
Her Royal Majesty isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty more shops,
restaurants, and pubs nearby for after-work drinks and socializing with
your fellow ad-tech aces. With a mid-sized team, you’ll have enough
coworkers to make it interesting, but not so many that you can’t remember
which Ted once saw Bono queueing at the market.

If you’ve got the
capability to take over projects, add fab new features to existing
platforms, and take this already-excellent product to the next level, drop
us an email and let us know — we’ll save you a martini.

Desired skills:
Strong Modern Perl. 

The ideal candidate is someone who’s been working
with Perl, Go and Python for a while. Someone who can take over projects,
add new features to the existing platform and collaborate with the team to
make an already triumphant product continue to grow.
