    Us

    Chartbeat is a real-time analytics service designed for real-time action used by everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Al Jazeera. We're democratizing data by putting it in the hands of people who need it to make decisions and take action - right now. Just before our 4th birthday we moved into our own sprawling office in Union Square, Manhattan. We are packing it full of incredible talent. Thanks to years of hard work and amazing funding by some of the top investors in the world (Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Index Ventures, and Betaworks) we're growing, and growing quickly.

    Our Team

    We're an eclectic team of circumnavigating polar explorers, coffee connoisseur data scientists, pint-sized Kansan product queens, triathlon-fit hackers and freakishly strong designers. We have opinions. We're expected to share them - right and wrong. And that's how we build amazing things together every single day.

    We're a startup, and we all have a stake in the business. So we work hard, and we trust you to work the hours it takes to give us the best of you. We don't track vacation because you can either make a decision on that with the good of the company in mind or you probably aren't right for us anyway.

As you can imagine, with around 5M concurrent visitors at peak hours every day, we see A LOT of data. You’ll have no shortage of challenges to solve. We promise you won’t be bored for one-five-millionth of a second.

    Your day-to-day

    • Integrate external data sources with Chartbeat
    • Scaling existing backend systems

    You

    You dig technology done right.

    As our newest frontend engineer, you'll be joining the ranks of our ads team and working on everything that makes Chartbeat awesome. Where to begin, where to begin...

    We're extending our current ad engagement services, but there's also brand new stuff to build this year that we have yet to raise the curtain on. On top of helping make those things come to life, you'll also be creating widgets, sidebars, browser extensions, and mobile apps - pretty much everything we can brainstorm into production that will change the way our clients think about and use advertising data.

    You're in love with the startup world and want to make your mark in it.

    You understand that our top focus is to change the metrics of the advertising space and that includes focusing on quality content engagement, not zombie armies of clicks and impressions. You also get that it's not just about creating a great product experience, it's about re-imaging value in advertising.

    We're a startup, so we're a small and flexible team with pretty fluid role definitions. You know that things move fast and change frequently around here, but you thrive in the type of environment where everybody jumps in to solve a challenge. Your impact on our frontend features and new products will be huge. Are you ready for that level of responsibility?

    Your day-to-day

    • Development of the frontend logic and UI
    • Participating in designing and implementing new features
    • Integrating ad server platforms because you know how the ecosystem works
    • Evolving the architecture of the frontend
    • Integrating with, and possibly extending, backend APIs

    Your Know-How

    • A love for building frontend features
    • Unparalleled expertise working with JS/HTML5/CSS in previous roles
    • Hands-on experience with ad servers (Doubleclick, OAS, OpenX, etc.)
    • Fluent in LESS, CSS transitions and Canvas
    • Background in implementing major UI's/UI components
    • Super huge ++ for Angular, Google Closure Toolkit, Python, Django

    You

    More traffic? No sweat!

    Have you read our Backend Engineer posting? Because that's just one of the places we talk about our sustainable scaling goals at Chartbeat. Our traffic is growing and as we continue to build new and supremely cool real-time solutions, we want someone who knows all about low latency, highly scalable, distributed, and concurrent design. We're not looking for someone who knows how to install an OS, we're looking for someone who knows how to write the OS.

    You're right for the job because you've successfully coded up services that wrangle lots of data and coordinate computation across hundreds of machines. Your highest priority is wanting to work with a team of smart engineers. You're ready to take on intense technical challenges and discuss the finer points of B-trees and skip lists. If that's what makes your brain tick, then you're our guy/gal.

    Your day-to-day

    • Architect, develop, deploy and maintain highly available distributed infrastructure services and maintaining services for storing and querying large amounts of data eficiently
    • Completely understand and drive the improvement of our servers at all levels - evrything from the application layer to bare (or virtualized) metal
    • Maneuver through and analyze our databases, file systems, networking stack, and kernel issues

    Your Know-How

    • Experience building high-traffic, bulletproof systems
    • Passion for managing large data sets and rapidly growing traffic
    • Brain full of knowledge around Python, MongoDB, MySQL, C, Nginx, AWS, and Apache Zookeeper -- and that's just scratching the surface!
    • BS or MS in Computer Science with a focus on systems engineering

    You are the true perfectionist.

    We're in the process of expanding our product arsenal at Chartbeat at the moment and that means really exciting times ahead. To help with all that building, our engineering team is looking for someone to help elevate the overall quality of things going into production here; writing tests, checking data, and helping to look out for our customers. It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyway) that you're extremely detail-oriented, have strong coding skills, and you've done this type of testing in the past.

    We're a small, flexible team, so when you come onboard, you'll play an integral part of engineering. Our backend is mostly built in Python and have around 8M concurrent visitors at peak hours every single day. Amazing right?! With all this data running thru our systems, it's becoming that much more important to find a self-directed engineer who's excited about bug bashing and solving complex problems. You'll be our first and only QA Engineer so get ready to bring that expertise to the table.

    Your day-to-day

    • Write and maintain tests for both the ads and publishing product pipeline
    • Run thru our current test suite making sure to automate everything that's not
    • Work with the rest of the team to analyze test results and debug problems
    • Look over customer-facing API's and validate code changes against existing test suites

    Your Know-How

    • JavaScript and Python experience a must
    • Jenkins, Selenium, and familiarity with automated testing tools and frameworks
    • Strong understanding of all things testing related including best practices and manual/automated testing
    • Excellent talking skills because you'll have to work across different teams/products and even stronger written communication chops because you'll be writing lots of tech documentation
    • Ability to work in a fast-paced, agile environment

Do you have an unparalleled unusual enthusiasm for the interwebs? Are you the first person offering up your seat on the subway? Were you everyone’s favorite camp counselor/after-school tutor/TA?

    In your new role as Chartcorps member, you’ll be one of the most visible people on the team, working with news and other publishing outfits to help them understand how to get their best content in front of their visitors. That means getting to know everything about digital newsrooms (with a focus on the editorial team), so that you can help them by being a go-to resource about their industry and also how Chartbeat fits into the picture. As we continue to grow our product line, this is expanding to also include video teams, advertising, and beyond.

    You’ll need to help Chartbeat users solve any problem they have, proactively anticipating and stopping an issue before it becomes one - by being the super-quick, always-on curious and effective on-your-feet thinker that you are. You don’t need to know how to code, but we’ll work with you to learn to diagnose technical issues in client Chartbeat code implementations. Some of our Chartcorps members even put hacks projects together in their spare time.

    You’ll also be working with our all-star Product team to make sure that the feedback you’re getting from our customers is properly incorporated into future product and feature releases. Get that? You have control over how our product is formed. Amazing, right?

    Almost as important as being the voice for each and every one of our users, you’ll be expected to contribute your own personal wit/wisdom/mentorship/passion to our endlessly amusing and attractive team.

    Your Know-How

    • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
    • Friendly, patient, and relaxed personality
    • Comfortable with using different types of software and jumping into new ones you don’t know
