Interruption, irrelevance and waste - that's what came to our minds when we thought of 'online advertising.' Sharethrough is changing the way that great websites make money, making advertising a whole lot better in the process. Goodbye banners and punch-the-monkey ads.
Digital advertising is a challenging and complex world. Whatever your interests, there's a unique set of challenges advertising brings. Bring your passion for technology, systems thinking and solving problems at scale and we'll bring you into the fold.
A demanding architecture requires an equally complex infrastructure to support it. We automate and monitor everything from instance provisioning and configuration to auto-deploying every green commit to our acceptance environment. Chef, Knife, Vagrant, Graphite and dozens of instances on EC2; if devops is your passion, we're saving a seat for you.
We collect, store, organize, analyze and share upwards of 30GB of performance data every hour. Interested in data science and machine learning? Hop on to our CDH4 cluster and start using Hive, Scalding, Impala, Azkaban and more.

Cold Hard Facts:
- I prefer digital watches to analog watches because I truthfully can't tell time.

Cold Hard Facts:
- Tried growing and eating my own vegetables. Yummy and delicious said all the local animals. Unfortunately they didn't leave any for me.

Assoc. Product Manager
Our team has a diverse set of backgrounds, experience and interests across several industries and our values bring us together. We know that culture is based on more than our ping pong and shuffleboard tables. These aren't just the things we wish we were; they’re the values we hold ourselves accountable to and that we're proud to embody every day. Here's how our company values apply to engineering at Sharethrough.
Let's write your story together. From Horstmann's Scala for the Impatient to Metz's Practical OO in Ruby, the engineering Dropbox clocks in at 46 books. Want something added, just ask. We regularly attend conferences (we've gone to jQueryConf and sponsored GoGaRuCo and three RubyConfs within the last year) and if you're interested in speaking, writing or contributing to open source, we'll make sure you have time for that too.
Fail fast and learn by doing. We roll in one-week iterations and value decision over perfection. Our days look like red, green, refactor, ship. We automate (our CI deploys each green build to acceptance) and test-drive everything to facilitate responsible, rapid progress and we know that if we aren't shipping, we aren't learning about what works.
Demand and share the context of your work. We believe teams are most successful when everyone understands where we're headed and why, giving meaning to the work we do every day. During onboarding you'll shadow each team at Sharethrough and every day you'll participate in shaping your work by understanding our market and customers. We do this by preferring close collaboration and communication in and outside of engineering, over implementing detailed specifications captured in tracking tools.
Self-awareness and effective communication. You'll have a front-row seat into everything Sharethrough at our catered, weekly company all-hands. We facilitate transparency in engineering through standups and retros, which happen to be the only two meetings you'll be in all week.
Create new things. As an engineering organization, this is why we're here. We value creation over improvement and look for people with an entrepreneurial spirit, knowing that great ideas often originate from within engineering.
Empathize with and trust in those around you. As engineers we're passionate about our work and with passion comes strong opinions. We value engaging, spirited conversation where those strong opinions are weakly held, underpinned by our respect for one another.
Think big and think ahead. We embrace uncertainty, get excited when an answer isn't obvious and have confidence in our ability find solutions. Some of the most interesting and difficult problems don't always have obvious answers and hey, hard problems is why we're here.
Sharethrough is looking for engineers with a strong passion for ops to own our application and big data infrastructures. As an early member of the team, you will define how Sharethrough operates at scale - creating the tooling and systems that facilitate rapidly iterating and experimenting with new infrastructures.
Sharethrough is looking for systems engineers to work on the backend of our ad serving infrastructure that serves millions impressions a day.
Ads dancing around the page, popping up when you are trying to read your favorite movie spoiler, auto-starting in the middle of an awesome #fail compilation, you love all these things, right? My guess is no, and that is where Sharethrough comes in. Here is how:
We are empowering creative agencies and producers to break out of typical :15/:30 video spots and banner advertisements to produce longer, entertaining brand content. This can be a video (like those on sharethrough.tv), a sponsored post, or any other type of content that has inherent value purely beyond advertising.
We provide a vehicle for media agencies to distribute this entertaining, informative or educational branded content. Content is delivered in a format that isn’t interruptive or annoying, as better viewership, engagement and sharing come from choosing to watch the content.
We are providing content to leading publishers and helping them distribute video in a way that is “native” (translation: thoughtfully designed and integrated) to their users’ experience, as opposed to interruptive.
And it’s working - we've been working with Fortune 1000 companies to deliver branded content across leading websites, blogs and social networks in a fashion that is user-initiated and not interruptive; while also providing detailed analytics and insights about viewership and social engagement within Sharethrough HQ, our analytics platform.
