Handling over 1 trillion queries per day, our platform operates at an unprecedented scale. We have also built something even stronger and more valuable: an award-winning culture based on trust, ownership, empathy, and collaboration. We value the unique experiences and perspectives that each person brings to The Trade Desk, and we are committed to fostering inclusive spaces where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work every day.
Do you have a passion for solving hard problems at scale? Are you eager to join a dynamic, globally- connected team where your contributions will make a meaningful difference in building a better media ecosystem? Come and see why Fortune magazine consistently ranks The Trade Desk among the best small- to medium-sized workplaces globally.
What we do:
Our Software Engineers are end-to-end owners who have the opportunity to participate in many aspects of designing, building, and delivering data-focused products for our stakeholders.---
At The Trade Desk, we believe in building the back-end infrastructure of our platform with a focus on quality at scale. This means whether we are building parts of our client-facing applications, internal custom solutions for our own team members, or model pipelines for bidding optimizations, we are making sure that we have infrastructure, development, and tools to do it right and efficiently.
Our system performs all day, every day serving global traffic. We build a distributed system in a highly collaborative environment, utilizing a broad range of technologies. Our back-end developers work on finding solutions to algorithmic, optimization and scale challenges in everything we do.
What you'll do:

Working on the developer tooling, processes, and productivity means speeding up all of engineering by improving the efficiency of the development process across all aspects. We design and implement processes and tools that impact everybody and help the organization continuously scale.
If you're the kind of engineer who says "I want to fix that", or "I can see how we can make experience of our engineers better" whenever you encounter a problem, then come join us. We focus where we can have the most impact, whether it's prototyping new platform-wide technologies, improving build performance, rethinking code organization, application monitoring and alerting systems, or building completely new deployment frameworks, just to name a few. The Trade Desk's platform pushes the boundaries of modern software engineering and keeping it balanced, requires tools and processes that do the same.
We are a global team with different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. To complement this team, you will welcome ideas that are different from your own and be well-versed in building from common ground to value, seek out, and foster invisible and visible dimensions of diversity.
Who you are:
Our culture is much deeper than just having fun together (though, we do that well too...). We take pride in our engineers being trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and gritty pursuers of excellence.

  • You have 11+ years of software development, engineering experience
  • You have a Bachelor's/Master's level degree in a computer-science or relevant engineering related field or equivalent experience. Not everyone has the same level of access to opportunities.

    Variety of technical opportunity is one of the best things about working at The Trade Desk as a software engineer which is why we do not expect you to know every technology we use when you start. What we care about is that you can learn quickly and find solutions to complex problems using the optimum tools for the job.---What you know is less important than how well you learn and innovate. We don't need engineers who know all the answers; we need engineers who can invent the answers no one has thought of yet, to the questions yet to be asked.---
