Job Description

Intent Media isn’t your usual company.

Our work is powered by the premise that every person at Intent Media is unique, possessing a distinct set of skills, personality and passions. We embrace our collective talents to tackle technical challenges, refine our successfully disruptive business ideas and co-create one of the most human and inspiring work cultures out there. We are a team of deep collaborators, valuing and rewarding shared success over individual heroics.

As a Software Creator at Intent Media you’ll code and innovate on products that are changing the ecommerce industry. Our engineering teams help the world’s leading travel companies to serve tens of millions of ads every day across the United States and around the world. These ads provide an exceptional user experience to help shoppers find and compare prices, while simultaneously increasing brand profitability.

In our engineering work we balance cutting-edge technologies with industry-proven practices. Our polyglot approach means you will see a variety of backend languages, Javascript libraries, and databases. Our agile way of working is founded on many years of experience; you will be working with accomplished innovators in the software community.

What you will do

We believe that engineers are most effective when they are involved with the whole lifecycle of software development: conceiving new features, designing and coding the change, testing, deploying, and support. You’ll be performing all these activities as part of a closely collaborating squad. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to do everything at first - you’ll learn the essentials through pair programming with experienced engineers on your team.

About you

Intent Media is looking for bright and ambitious software engineers to join our team of thoroughly awesome humans and dogs.

  • You’re motivated, collaborative, open, and able to thrive in our close-knit team.
  • You have experience with at least one common object-oriented language (Java, Ruby, etc.)
  • You have experience with databases and SQL.
  • You have experience with, or interest in, functional programming - several of our teams are using languages like Clojure and Scala, and modern Java also has functional idioms.
  • You posses a solid grounding in computer science including algorithms and data structures.
  • You have the flexibility to work on all aspects of delivering working software, including analysis, design, automated testing, cross team collaboration, and support.
  • And you have a solid understanding of, and ideally experience with, web application development.

About us

Intent Media operates the world’s most powerful platform for advertising on commerce sites. We help online travel companies unlock their full revenue potential with innovative, high-margin advertising products powered by predictive analytics. Our customers include the world's largest online travel agencies, metasearch companies, airlines, hotels and car rental agencies.

Every day, we’re inspired by two pursuits. First, we’re imagining and building novel products that are upending ecommerce. Second, we’re building the company we’ve always wanted to work for — one that’s open, human and collaborative, where very smart people come together to share ideas and get things done.

Why work at Intent Media

We are over 100 people and a dozen cool dogs with offices in the best neighborhoods in New York City and London. We're backed by Redpoint, Matrix and Insight, plus some of the world’s leading individual investors, including Reid Hoffman, Brian O'Kelley, Kevin Ryan and David Rosenblatt. Crain's has named us one of the Best Places to Work in NYC five years in a row.

Our vibrant team accomplishes a lot every day, but we insist upon work/life balance so things never become stale. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we take our work very seriously. We believe that in order for our employees to perform their best, they need access to strategic decisions, and so our flat structure and open communication invite innovation from all levels — ideas flow freely.

We offer competitive compensation and great benefits; stock options; learning budget, and company-wide social events.
