Description

SiriusXM and Pandora have joined together to create the leading audio entertainment company in the U.S. Together, we are uniquely positioned to lead a new era of audio entertainment by delivering the most compelling subscription and ad-supported audio experiences to millions of listeners -- in the car, at home and on the go. Our talent, content, technology and innovation continue to be at the forefront, and we want you to be a part of it! Check out our current openings below and at www.siriusxm.com/careers.

Position Summary:

Our Ads Engineering team is looking for a full-stack engineer to help develop finance-oriented solutions across a wide variety of applications in our ads ecosystem.  While this position focuses primarily on ad finance applications, it also has a strong emphasis on collaborating across many other neighboring teams.

Duties and Responsibilities:

You will have the opportunity to build and elaborate:

  • Kafka-based stream processing applications

  • Web applications with a variety of tech (Python/Django, Java, Node.js/React)

  • API-focused services (GraphQL and REST)

  • Google Cloud solutions using BigQuery, Composer, Hive, etc.

Because we contribute to and integrate with many different applications, you will often encounter new systems built using technologies that may be new to you.  You must be comfortable with a constant state of learning and remain highly motivated in your efforts to understand many different systems.

Testing, automation and code review are at the core of our work.  You will participate earnestly in code review, seeking to build understanding in the process.  Where you find toil, you will leave automation.  And while we don't subscribe to a particular testing dogma, we value testing greatly and expect that you do, too.

Collaboration and communication are also essential to life on our team.  You'll work with many other ad engineering teams, as well as many teams outside of that space.  You'll also work closely with our product management team, who in turn work tirelessly to distill our stakeholders' needs for us. You will be fully invested in all of these interactions, striving always to enable others.

You prize creativity, simplicity, pragmatism and attention to detail, and we do too.
