Job Description

About Drive:

Drive is on a mission to upend the advertising industry by putting algorithms first.

Our 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.

You will help develop a new product called Autopilot. With Autopilot, machine learning algorithms execute and adjust ad campaigns based on their performance, entirely autonomously.

The market need is huge: Thousands of advertisers spend billions every year on native ads, but manage their campaigns manually. We will replace this with software and machine learning.

Drive is profitable and closed a round of fundraising, with more funding coming later this year.

Opportunity:

We are looking for the leaders of the company before our series A.

You will be with the company practically from the beginning, through all the early stages of a startup, like fundraising and creating a culture, but without any of the normal startup risk, since the product is such a hit.

The founder wrote all the code so far, but you will lead the engineering team.

---

Perks:

* Create our engineering culture from the ground up. There is literally one other programmer, the founder!
* Apply AI to an industry in the most practical way.
* Performance marketing is great for quantitative people because it's pure business - pure results.

---

Tech stack:

So far: Ruby, Postgres, hosted on Azure.

You don't need to know Ruby. Just be a great engineer.

---

About you:

* 5+ years experience writing code
* Want a startup adventure
* 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!
* Good leader of people.

Salary will increase after we raise money.
