About Hivestack

Have you ever wondered how those outdoor screens manage to deliver advertisements that seem to speak directly to your likes and interests? It’s called digital out of home advertising and it’s usually enabled by programmatic technology. That’s exactly what we do. Hivestack revolutionized the future of our industry by building our unique full stack ad tech platform.

On the buy side, marketers use Hivestack’s Demand Side Platform (DSP) to create measurable campaigns that activate DOOH screens in real time based on consumer behavior and audience movement patterns. On the sell side, DOOH media owners use Hivestack’s Supply Side Platform (SSP) & Ad Server and Header Bidder to manage inventory and drive revenue.

The key to our success has been our amazing pink-loving global team.  We don’t like to rest on traditional workplace models, we are flexible to change and we aren’t afraid to stand out and champion new ideas. Sounds interesting? Come join us and make a real impact on digital screens around the world.


About this opportunity 

We are looking for talented Devops to work on the Hivestack platform. The Hivestack Platform consists of a Supply Side Platform (SSP), Demand Side Platform (DSP) and an ad exchange.

You will be working on one or more of these products as part of an agile team. 


How You’ll Make an Impact

As a Devops, you will be working on our microservice base platform.  Most of our platform is in Python today, though new services that need low latency are currently being implemented in Golang. The development lifecycle is already automated through a CI/CD pipeline for almost all projects. Our deployment lifecycle is currently spread across 7 self-contained environments across the world including 2 in mainland China.

We expect you to work on any infrastructure needs that may arise in, but not limited to, AWS. We need someone that will be able to support the development activities and help automate further our existing and new processes. Finally, we are looking for someone that will be able to dive into any production issues with the rest of the team and quickly identify the culprit with the existing performance monitoring solutions we have in place and identify areas that lack adequate monitoring.

We want someone who will take ownership of the infrastructure and will be accountable for its performance, reliability and scalability.

As an early member of the DevOps and Infrastructure team, you will have a lot of potential to lead projects and will be able to influence the growth of the team. You will also be included in the hiring process for new members of the team and will be required to help coach newer team members. Finally, you are expected to act as a change agent among the different development teams to foster adoption of new processes and technical solutions to better our code quality, reliability and performance.

As all other team members, we expect from you to participate in all aspects of the development process, requirements gathering, research, development, testing, monitoring and troubleshooting.
