Job description

Popular Pays is the leading platform for agile advertising. Advertising is in a moment of transition and we’re betting that the way that work gets done in the future is a powerful mix of creativity + technology. We’ve built the modern approach to advertising: a global network of creators, a platform to streamline operations, and an expert service team to guide you along the way. The results are that our customers' creative gets to market faster, makes a bigger impact, and we add flexibility into their operations.

Popular Pays recently was acquired by Lightricks, Lightricks creates award-winning apps - in the field of image, sound and video processing - used by hundreds of millions of content creators all over the world. We’re building the future of the creator economy together.

Responsibilities

We’re looking for new teammates who have at least 7-10 years industry experience, principally in Ruby on Rails that can join our team.  We have a very exciting Product roadmap and need help with the integration of our new parent company, Lightricks, as well as to continue to develop features to grow our business that serves creators and brands to collaborate together. 

We’ll be growing our creator base considerably and will be developing and improving infrastructure to optimize for scale and performance.

We use a client server architecture that includes Ruby and Javascript built on Rails, Node.js, and Ember.js. We have Postgresql, Redis, and Elasticsearch instances.  We use S3 for static assets and use Heroku to help streamline our DevOps.

In addition, you’ll be leaning in and leading efforts on our projects to enhance the functionality of our platform to be the SAAS solution that can service clients ranging in size from small businesses to enterprise agencies and brands.

Does this kind of work and responsibility excite you?

Engineering Culture:

Here’s a high-level overview of the core values of our engineering team:

We believe engineering teammates are owners of the Product.

We believe in being lean, scoping projects, shipping continuously, communicating the good and bad.

We believe in failure - it makes us stronger.

We believe in shipping and iteration, not endless deliberation and inaction.

We believe you thrive in a feedback heavy culture.

We are opinionated, but open to ideas.

We believe in writing code that follows existing patterns where applicable and writing code that can be easily understood by the next person that works on it - we favor avoiding complexity over cleverness and over-optimized solutions.

We believe in asking for forgiveness not for permission - autonomy and self-management are important on our lean team.

We're an outcome not an hours motivated organization. We expect our teammates to be productive and active contributors to our business.
