Software Engineer II - Data Governance

thetradedesk · 30+ days ago

What we do

Our Software Engineers are end-to-end owners who have the opportunity to participate in many aspects of designing, building, and delivering data-focused products for our stakeholders.

At The Trade Desk, we believe in building the backend infrastructure of our platform with a focus on quality at scale. Whether we are building parts of our client-facing applications, internal custom solutions for our own team members, or model pipelines for bidding optimizations, we are making sure that we have infrastructure, development, and tools to do it right and efficiently.

Our system performs every day, 24/7, serving global traffic. We build a distributed system in a highly collaborative environment, utilizing a broad range of technologies. Our backend developers work on finding solutions to algorithmic, optimization, and scale challenges in everything we do.

At the Privacy and Data Governance team, as part of the Data Platform org., we focus on the sensitive part of data - we make sure our systems know what data is sensitive, handle it appropriately, deliver it to the right hands only, and track its life and usage. All of that on a scale of 15 million QPS w/o slowing down.

By nature, we are a “horizontal team” – we touch every product TTD offers and, through that, a variety of tech stacks. Our stakeholders are mostly internal, and we team up with multiple R&D and UX teams.

The team is based in 2 locations – London, UK and CO, US

What you’ll do:

Within the charter of the team, some of the work that you will be doing to help us deliver on our mission is:

· Design, build, deliver, and own full lifecycle development software from inception to production

· Drive complex changes involving multiple components and stacks

· Deliver quality changes, including automated tests, metrics, and monitoring

· Collaborate with team members from multiple teams

· Collaborate with business stakeholders from multiple disciplines

· Guide and review changes to product features in line with product roadmaps

· Validate changes to ensure high quality product releases

· Work in a distributed system environment

· Understand the business objectives behind the code

· Understand system architecture fundamentals through self-directed and guided learning

· Lead others through example, mentorship, teaching, and/or participate in hiring activities

Who you are:

Our culture is much deeper than just having fun together (though we do that well, too). We take pride in our engineers being trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and gritty pursuers of excellence. You do not have to meet all the requirements below, but we believe that people who meet most of them will have a higher likelihood of succeeding in this role:

· You are comfortable working on an agile, distributed team spanning multiple time zones and continents

· You can communicate effectively across both technical and non-technical audiences

· You have a solid understanding of computer science and engineering fundamentals

· You have experience working with distributed systems

· You are passionate about the “why” behind what you’re doing, not just about the challenge it represents

· You have 2+ years of software development engineering experience

· You have a Bachelor’s/Master’s level degree in computer science or relevant engineering-related field or equivalent experience. Not everyone has the same level of access to opportunities. What is most important to us is what and how you can contribute, which is why our consideration is not limited by the level of education you have

· You are proficient in one or more of the following programming languages: C#, Python, SQL, or Scala

· You have some knowledge of software development code editors: Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, Rider, and version control systems (Git, Perforce)

· You have additional nice-to-have experience in the following areas: database engines (Microsoft SQL Server, Aerospike, Vertica, Redis), building micro-services, operating systems and cloud, Kubernetes, Kafka, EMR


A variety of technical opportunities is one of the best things about working at The Trade Desk as a software engineer, which is why we do not expect you to know every technology we use when you start. What we care about is that you can learn quickly and find solutions to complex problems using the optimum tools for the job. What you know is less important than how well you learn and innovate. We are not seeking engineers who know all the answers; we need engineers who can invent answers no one has thought of yet and find answers to the questions yet to be asked.
