Say Media, a global online publishing and technology company, is seeking a Full Stack Software Engineer. We currently use a mix of JavaScript (AngularJS framework and in-house ad frameworks), HTML5, CSS, Node.js, and Python. Role is responsible design, implementation, and maintenance of Say Media’s Monetization platform

Who we are:

Say Media is reinventing the digital magazine with Tempest, our award-winning publishing platform, designed to create rich editorial experiences that bring content front and center. Unlike a general purpose CMS, Tempest is built from the ground up to support the specific needs of the modern digital magazine. We partner with leading digital magazines to give them a best-in-class publishing platform and professional services, allowing them to focus on their content, their readers, and their business instead of their technology. And we are always inventing beautiful new experiences like Adaptive Ads which seamlessly incorporate quality content and brand messaging on any device. Owning our own technology means we can also innovate faster - and keep making things better.

The members of our Engineering team are the architects and builders of Say's technology. Engineers work with a variety of programming languages: JavaScript, Python, Perl, Java, HTML, CSS. Digging deep in code is where the real magic happens. Our team is driven by creativity, embraces hard work, promotes collaboration, and focuses on solving important problems. We also foster learning, we are not afraid of making mistakes, and encourage risks, as we understand change. An ideal addition to the team will bring energy, humor, and passion along with deep expertise and attention to details.

Tempest currently serves 50 million pages per month, and we are continually adding new sites and partners. We expect fast-paced growth throughout the company.

  • Ability to work in a company environment involving a product management organization, architects, development, and customer-facing support
