Beeswax, named one of Business Insider’s “hottest pre-IPO ad tech startups of 2016,” is looking for a software engineer to build and maintain the user interface that our customers rely on. Our goal is to offer the best frontend experience in the programmatic advertising world.
Our frontend application is built using Backbone, written in ES6, packaged with Webpack and served from an Express server running on AWS ECS. This application hits our Buzz REST APIs.
Beeswax is an engineering-led company that places high value in building great software. Ad tech is not typically an industry where engineers have an opportunity to use great tools to build high-quality user experiences, but we feel differently.
This position reports to the CTO, a long-time senior engineer from Google who was a key Technical Lead in the process of scaling Gmail.
