--- "About Drive:\n\nDrive is on a mission to upend the advertising industry by putting
algorithms first.\n\nOur product has been called a \"game-changer\" and \"must-have\"
for our clients' businesses. Drive puts spend and revenue all in one place and
automatically monitors our clients' ad campaigns, making real-time adjustments to
their spend based on performance. \n\nYou will help develop a new product called
Autopilot. With Autopilot, machine learning algorithms execute and adjust ad campaigns
based on their performance, entirely autonomously.\n\nThe market need is huge: Thousands

Create our engineering culture from the ground up. There is literally one other
programmer, the founder!\n* Apply AI to an industry in the most practical way.\n*
Performance marketing is great for quantitative people because it's pure business
- pure results.\n\n---\n\nTech stack:\n\nSo far: Ruby, Postgres, hosted on Azure.\n\nYou
don't need to know Ruby. Just be a great engineer.\n\n---\n\nAbout you:\n\n* 5+
years experience writing code\n* Want a startup adventure\n* Superstar programmer.
I've been programming for almost 20 years; I've written systems that process 50,000+
requests per second; you should be a better programmer than me!\n* Good leader of
people.\n\nSalary will increase after we raise money."
