About this Role
Fandom is the largest Fan platform in the world with over 2.5 billion page views and 300 million users a month! Our Community Platform underlies some of the biggest fan knowledge bases in the world, including communities built around pop culture phenomena like Star Wars , Minecraft , Marvel Comics , and thousands of others.
With that scale we are looking for problem solvers and change agents that use technologies and techniques as tools to drive results fast and efficiently.
We pick the right tool for the right job including Typescript, NodeJs, Java, PHP, Python, Docker, k8s, AWS Lambdas, Varnish, We need you to make smart technical decisions to build our platform and improve it.
In the Monetisation area you will be faced with Ad, eSports and Video products that support our Fans by generating revenue required to host our platforms.
Scope of the monetisation is not closed, it might involve for example e-commerce solutions or expanding our eSports segment.
The common denominator of all those products, including Ads and Video, is THE scale. Serving billion impressions daily requires great discipline, tooling and smart techniques.
Here your experience with the backend and frontend nature of web applications design is crucial. Another pattern in our product and technical design is to use terabytes of data from rich event streams generated by our traffic to get the right answers and tune the solution towards user or product metrics.
As a Staff engineer you will not only architect, design and develop software, but you will have a significant impact on the whole Fandom engineering world.
We expect that you will drive both the technical design in your team and our engineering culture in the company. You will get time for both.
