CafeMedia is looking for an ambitious Data Engineering Analyst to join our Ad Code Engineering team. We are a highly entrepreneurial organization looking for people who are able to have a big impact immediately. We are looking for very smart, motivated people who get results and want to be part of something great.

At CafeMedia, you will be joining a technology team that builds and maintains a very high-traffic family of web properties that together reach over 90MM users every month. Over the past year, we have helped grow a large network of content sites, made contributions to open source projects, significantly improved our co-workers’ day-to-day by creating helpful internal tools, and designed innovative solutions to problems many digital media publishers have but few have solved. We strive to have a fun and welcoming team, and are eager to share knowledge and learn from each other.

Specifically, the person hired for this role will:

  • Work closely with engineering stakeholders to understand data validation needs
  • Own data validation for the ad code team, including creating specs for data validation, building reusable views to analyze data, and performing analysis
  • Translate issues uncovered in data analysis into potential bug fixes in the codebase (JavaScript)
  • Manage data analysis for long running experiments
  • Dig into data to see if there are any current problems with our existing codebase
  • Come up with new ideas and things to test based on data performance
  • Monitor releases to ensure no impression / revenue / viewability losses
  • Train engineering team to code and QA with data in mind


  • MS in a computational field such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, or Engineering is preferred
  • Software engineering experience, particularly in JavaScript
  • Experience working with log level data / machine data (i.e. Splunk, DFP log files, etc.)
  • Experience developing/following/maintaining QA/Validation processes
  • Experience with ad serving technology, including DFP/GAM, header bidding, and/or Prebid.js
  • Have a passion for data and figuring out how to find a needle in a haystack
  • Familiar with AWS services and data analytics products
  • Demonstrated and referenceable skills as a contributing member of a geographically dispersed team
  • Ability to work quickly and efficiently in a team environment to meet short deadlines
  • Excellent communication skills
A competitive base salary will be offered. In addition, we offer health/dental/vision benefits, 401k, life insurance, paid vacation/sick/personal time, and many perks.

CafeMedia is an equal opportunity employer.
