Who We Are Looking For:
  • You have a sustained track recordof making significant, self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful data engineering projects. You think beyond just the task at hand to deeply understand the why behind what you are doing.
  • You understand engineering fundamentals.At our scale, many off-the-shelf techniques and existing technologies (open source and enterprise) simply don't work. You are able to work from first principles to evaluate solutions and adapt them to a unique environment.
  • You have experience in data engineering. You've worked with SQL, ETL, data modeling, and technologies similar to Spark, Scala, C#, Java, etc..
  • You are a broadly skilled engineer, accustomed to developing web services. You have experience building always-on systems, working across a variety of technologies and service layers.

You have strongly-held, defensible ideas, and advocate for what you believe is right. You are also adept at identifying and evaluating trade-offs, willing to be proven wrong, and quick to walk through fire to support your fellow teammates.
  • You value, seek out, and foster diversity.We are a global team from many diverse backgrounds, with different experiences and perspectives. To complement this team, you will welcome ideas that are different from your own and be skilled at finding and building from common ground.
  • You are a creative thinker,not bound by the way things have always been done. What you know is less important than how well you learn and innovate. We don't need engineers who know all the answers we need engineers who can invent the answers no one has thought of yet, to the questions yet to be asked.

What We Care About:
What and how you can contribute is what's important to us. Our consideration is not limited by the kind of education you have or the specific technologies you have experience with. Variety of technical challenge is one of the best things about working at The Trade Desk as an engineer, but 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 solve complex problems using the best tools for the job.
Our culture runs much deeper than just having fun together (though, we do that well too...) - the people we want on our team are trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and gritty pursuers of excellence.
Does this sound like you If so, we welcome your application and the chance to meet you.
