Are you an accomplished engineer ready for an exciting journey into the core of data aggregation and reporting? Join our vibrant Bobby Tables team as a Software Engineer and be at the forefront of transforming our Reporting product!

About the Team:

Smartly.io proudly houses Bobby Tables, a team dedicated to crafting a robust reporting ecosystem. Our number-crunching service, a critical component of the Smartly.io AI-powered advertising platform, efficiently handles diverse data sources, making it an indispensable data powerhouse. Clients effortlessly analyze ad campaign performances with our intuitive report builder and data visualizer tool.

The customer-facing interface to the online analytical processing (OLAP) system for complex analysis is viewed by 90% of our customers and provides a framework for a variety of Campaign Management and Optimization features. In the backend the challenges lie in a massive database scale (several terabytes of data), complex database queries with a flexible query language via REST API, and collaboration with numerous stakeholders on both client and data ingestion sides. The data structures have evolved from being focused on one ad-serving channel to being abstract cross-channel. Reporting engine uptime SLO is 99.95% - we implement best practices in rolling out changes to achieve the target of being a stable data source for our customers, both internal and external.

Technologies we use: React, Ruby with Active Record, PostgreSQL with Citus extension, Node.js-powered services for data ingestion. Check out our Engineering at Smartly.io site to learn how our engineering and product development work.
