MediaMath’s strength is in numbers.  Our technology analyzes 200 billion customer opportunities daily– more volume than the top 10 stock exchanges in the world, combined. 

Over 700 Mathletes in 16 global offices are trusted by two-thirds of the Fortune 500 and partner with thousands of marketers to ensure brands connect with right audiences, in the right place, in the right time.


We believe consumers want to have meaningful conversations with their favorite and yet-to-be-discovered brands across all digital touchpoints. Our omnichannel, integrated programmatic platform unites digital media and big data to maximize the return on every marketing dollar spent by making advertising relevant, personalized, measurable and controllable.   From inventing the DSP category in 2007 to being named a DMP Forrester Challenger (our first year participating in the DMP Wave!) in 2017, we continue to deliver results for marketers more quickly and accurately than any other solution. 

Technology is changing the way brands interact with consumers.  MediaMath is powering that change.  Come be a part of it!


We’re looking for an experienced, architecturally-minded Senior Software Engineer to be the tech lead on our API Usability team. It’s an infrastructure service team focused on improving and modernizing the reliability and quality of MediaMath’s API offerings. This team manages authentication and authorization, as well as the decomposition of a few core monolithic services into micro services.


  • Developing solutions: You’ll pair with our infrastructure and product teams to develop existing services into well-architected, scalable, testable, and maintainable software.
  • Connecting people: Help other team members to grow as engineers through code reviews, pairing, and mentoring.
  • Focusing on delivery: You’ll balance timelines and business priorities with technical feasibility, then communicate the best, most strategic way forward.


This is not an exhaustive list of responsibilities. As part of our global team, you may be required to be work off-hours or be on-call on a rotating basis. Other duties may be assigned, as needed. MediaMath retains the right to change job duties at any time.


  • 8+ years of relevant software development.
  • Mastery of a modern programming language such as Go, Scala, Python or JavaScript (Node) and/or someone very comfortable at quickly picking-up new languages.
  • Working knowledge of Perl is a strong plus, as it’s our legacy application code base.
  • Strong experience in reactive frameworks such as Akka or Kafka.
  • Well-versed in converting monoliths into high-throughput distributed micro services
  • An evangelist and practitioner of good software development hygiene. CI/CD, Test driven development, and strongly versioned environments (i.e., Docker)
  • Experienced in an Agile environment. We like to keep our process simple, but it is great if you are an engineer who knows your own way around a backlog.
  • A natural communicator who has lead teams before.
