Job Description

Adwill is changing the advertising industry by putting algorithms before people. Our technology processes billions of mobile ad impressions every day and uses machine learning to replace jobs that have been done by people for decades.

We did over a million dollars in revenue last year, over 200 paying clients, and growing quickly.

The founder wrote all the code so far. You will be the first engineering hire and potentially lead the rest of the engineering team.

Adwill tells clients to stop managing ad campaigns themselves and trust our algorithms. Our clients pay us for results.

There is an internal dashboard where we can see every day how much money we made and how much we spent. All of the spending decisions, and results generated, are because of our algorithms: The better your code, the more money we'll make.

Our servers process over 50,000 ads a second, and we expect to 7x that this year. You don't need experience working at this volume, but you should be confident you can figure it out. Experience working with big data and machine learning a plus.

What We're Building

Led by a Yale CS alum, Adwill is a performance marketing platform using a cloud based real-time bidding engine. Over 200 paying clients have used our self-serve web interface. We’ve done over $1.5m in revenue on just $250K of angel money.

A programmer since the age of 12, Adwill’s founder, Aarlo Stone Fish, got into affiliate marketing in his 20s and generated over $100k with his own performance marketing agency. He wrote the first version of the product for himself.

These small ad agencies, like the one Aarlo ran, manage multiple ad campaigns on behalf of their clients. Each new campaign launch requires time and money testing and optimizing the ad spend to profitability - handling details like which apps to show ads in (Accuweather or NYTimes?), and time of day optimizations (are people more likely to install the game if I show ads in the afternoon vs. the morning?). Adwill fully automates this process, managing the client’s spend for them with software and real-time ad buying.
