Tired of working for ‘just another startup’? Want to make your mark on the technology world by delivering a groundbreaking, unique, new ad-tech experience that our users will rave about? I know, this sounds ridiculous…advertising that users will rave about? I promise you, we’re not crazy… well, not officially;)
Let me put this into perspective:
Brand marketers are having issues…It’s no secret that audiences are increasingly uninterested and disengaging from brands that turn up uninvited, as a result, traditional methods of advertising are losing their relevance, desirability, and impact. At DROPIT we think we’ve ‘cracked the code’ and created a better way to connect consumers with brands.
As our shiny new Senior Software Developer, you will provide world-class breakthrough technical leadership to your team of loyal fellow technologists and the business as a whole. You will have the pleasure of working with the management team to determine the technology required to support the business initiatives. We’re all about the customer, so any technology decisions MUST put them first…we love innovation, but don’t like to build cool stuff just to build cool stuff. You will need to speak fluent 1’s and 0’s to the dev team and be able to explain things in terms a 4-year-old will understand for the business team. When it comes to technology trends and other factors that could potentially impact the performance of DROPIT you will need to be thinking 10 steps ahead to make sure we’re well ahead of the curve. You also need a great business head on your shoulders and be able to prioritize dev tasks to maximize the current market opportunities. Experience in public speaking could be useful too…we want you up on a stage, under the spotlight, basking in the glory of your creation, being the envy of your peers who are working for ‘just another startup’.
