Senior Fullstack Engineer (Creative Production Tooling)



Berlin, Germany
Posted on Friday, March 1, 2024

Are you an ambitious Fullstack Engineer ready to take on new challenges and grow exceptionally in your career? Join our team Render as a Senior Software Engineer and be at the forefront of transforming our Creative production tooling!

About the Team:

Smartly.io proudly houses Render, responsible for a flagship part of Smartly's product offering, having an extensive impact on the company's ambitions for the future. Our customers rely on our creative production tooling to generate tens of millions of advertising creatives, and your future team will be placed in the center of all of this effort.

We are agnostic about technology and always aim to choose the best tools for the job. Our tools are built using React with TypeScript. We manage a public API for other internal services that consume our creative templates. Our service runs on Node.js orchestrated by Kubernetes. We also integrate with some BI tools (Snowflake, Redash, Google) to analyze our creatives used across social advertising platforms. We use Webpack and GitHub Actions for our build and deployment pipeline.

We will focus heavily on bringing innovations to the Creative Group while reacting to customer demand and feedback. Our templating solutions are in heavy use: during peak times, we've rendered 16 billion (16 000 000 000) images on hundreds of servers monthly.
