Associate Software Engineer

Engineering - International Belfast, United Kingdom


SpotX is unlike any other technology company in Belfast. We are the most transparent programmatic video advertising platform with more than 7 billion ad decisions per day reaching 600 million unique visitors in more than 190 countries.


As we continue to grow the Belfast Engineering Team, SpotX is looking for a highly talented Associate Software Engineer. We’re looking for someone who is versatile, methodical and enjoys focusing on new challenges.  Does that sound like you?


Your Opportunity:

  • Develop new tools and technologies in the video ad serving space
  • Be part of a cross functional engineering team
  • Contribute to all aspects of the development lifecycle
  • Influence the direction of our products and technology choices
  • Build and shape the team culture and working environment


What your day-to-day will look like:

Daily life at SpotX is all about the code we write.  You’ll start most days with a coffee or snack from the kitchen while you organize yourself for your day.  After standup, you’ll spend the majority of your day at the keyboard doing what you do best: slinging code that reads as well as it functions.  Meetings?  Schmeetings… we value your time.   Sometimes you will work with a partner (we love pair programming), and sometimes you’ll work with your best set of headphones.  Front end?  Back end?  Where do you like to work?  In either case, you will also write the tests that back up your code.


Throughout the day, you may take a break to head to the whiteboard with one of your teammates to help them work through design or review code so that it can be merged to the baseline.  At some point, you may be invited to a meeting to discuss or plan work that is coming soon.  We love new ideas, and we love solving problems together, even if it’s over a game of pool.
