Remote Javascript Developer

pubx Ai Ltd. , Anywhere · · Full-time employment · Programming

pubX is a small, agile, VC-backed start-up working to deliver artificial intelligence technology which will revolutionise the digital publishing industry.

Our mission is to enable digital publishers to monetize more effectively by helping them to fight back against Advertising Technology that has been designed to commoditize and lower the price of their inventory by creating cutting edge technology of a similar calibre to that used by advertisers and media agencies.

We believe that publishers are a cornerstone of society and democracy and that if advertising trends continue as they are, publishers will be lost to the world, along with truth, objectivity, and knowledge, replaced by walled garden echo chambers which are a pernicious component of society and fuel and foster hate.

We are looking for a javascript developer with some experience of frontend development to help us build publisher focused AdTech products.

Reports To: Development lead
Location: Remote
Employment type: Permanent
Working Hours: Full time (9.30am to 6:00pm + flexi hours, Mon – Fri)

The Role
Working in a small team with backend developers and ML engineers, you will be responsible for the development of the client side code and code integrations into the variety of publishers that we will deploy this across.

Your day-to-day will involve writing, testing, and debugging publisher side javascript deployed across some of the biggest websites in the world. You will have an opportunity to innovate and bring your own ideas to bear on customer problems and will have a meaningful input on the solutions that we bring to market.

You will be working in a broadly agile process, but will have the opportunity to shape the processes and structure as the company grows. Additionally you will have a large degree of freedom in selecting the appropriate tools and approaches you use to solve customer problems, but with the support of experienced developers when needed.

About you
You should have 4+ years of experience working as a front end Javascript developer, and be able to demonstrate a broad knowledge of front end development as well as a deep understanding of modern Javascript.

You should be focused, eager to learn and explore new things, and work well in a team. You should be comfortable with abstract reasoning and communicating complex ideas clearly.

You should have an interest in code quality and know how to use best practices to produce high quality software.
