Senior Network Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

Raise your hand if you LOVE ads! Yeah, we feel the same… So come be part of the solution, by joining the team that is changing the face of advertising for the better. Founded by the pioneers of real-time bidding (RTB), The Trade Desk has become the fastest growing demand-side platform (DSP) in the industry by offering agencies and their advertisers a best-in-class technology platform that focuses on delivering meaningful and relevant engagement with consumers.

With integrations into every major advertising exchange, we handle well over 4 trillion requests every month and growing – that's more page views and queries than Facebook, Google Search, and Google's entire network of websites combined – all serviced in single-digit-ms response times. Are you interested in working with big data? Do you want to push the edges of scale and responsiveness? It doesn't get much bigger or faster than this!

We are looking to hire a Senior Network Engineer who will help us build a world-class production network. This is a rare opportunity to join on the ground floor of establishing network and datacenter standards such as vendors (Juniper, Arista, Cisco, Cumulus, etc.) and architecture. You love building datacenters and figuring out the most efficient ways to provide low-latency connectivity to our RTB partners. You have experience with both "bare metal" traditional datacenters and cloud environments such as Amazon Web Services. You want to maintain and improve networks that scale to 8+ million transactions per second on a huge, global scale. You are an experienced, hands-on network engineer that will help to define early "greenfield" network technology standards. You can code, bringing a “DevOps” mentality to network engineering, automating as many tasks as possible. Production operations at The Trade Desk believes in managing "cattle, not pets" and that will also apply to the network.

Recently named one of the top 10 most promising companies in America by Forbes Magazine and one of the "Best Places To Work" in the nation by Outdoor Magazine, The Trade Desk offers a culture of "relaxed intensity" – one that comes from working alongside one of the most talented teams in our industry, and leading in a race that is ours to lose.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Liaison with existing hosting and network vendors at various levels of detail. Partner with them as-needed to improve their network-related processes, monitoring, capacity planning, and any other details as determined or communicated by engineers.
  • Own aspects of network engineering design and implementation for major infrastructure projects such as datacenter build-outs.
  • Evaluate and determine hardware and software standards (including vendor) for cloud networking and physical routers, switches, firewalls, VPNs, load balancers, etc.
  • Drive appropriate changes to improve cost efficiency of network systems.
  • Monitor the capacity of worldwide networks. Continually improve capacity measurement.
  • Investigate production alerts as appropriate and solve for both the short and long term.
  • Partner with developers and product owners as needed for network-related performance and efficiency improvements in systems and software.
  • Troubleshoot, investigate, and fix production network issues in cloud and hosted environments.
  • Evaluate and contribute towards potential new networking efforts such as IPv6 implementation.
  • Partner closely with the Senior Infrastructure Engineer to implement datacenter details relevant to networking, such as cabling standards, rack elevations, common management tools, out-of-band management, etc.
  • Participate in an on-call rotation related to production networks and datacenters.
  • Contribute towards tools, standards, vendors, and processes for in-house network management, such as supply chain logistics, spares inventory, and hardware repair.
  • A relentless drive to automate everything.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • 3+ years of network engineering experience.
  • Advanced knowledge of TCP/IP.
  • Extensive experience with a network operating system like JunOS, IOS and Cumulus.
  • Strong BGP knowledge and experience.
  • Experience with configuration management software such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, or SaltStack is a plus.
  • Familiarity with next-gen network architecture and strategies such as Clos, Anycast, DSR.
  • Deep experience with physical datacenter infrastructure.
  • Experience with the responsibilities operating a physical environment: co-location, cabling, circuits, cross-connects, network and systems integrators, etc.
  • Ability to code in at least one language.
  • Experience supporting a hybrid Windows and Linux environment, or a willingness to learn one of these platforms.
  • Preference and experience with open source software is a big plus.
  • Experience with agile methodologies and a rapid development cycle.
  • Ability to travel occasionally as needed, including to international locations.
  • A desire to seek out needless complexity and remove it.

Insider's spotlight

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our most recent Connected TV (CTV) launch was exciting because CTV is a big industry game changer. A lot of people from the London office worked on the project, so I know about the problems we had to solve in order to get us to the point where we could push it live. I’m excited to see how well it takes off.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Unrelenting curiosity. When you’re given a problem or task, you’re so curious that you become obsessive about solving it. I always know that I’ve found great engineers when they refuse to let go of a problem I’ve given them until they figure it out. This quality proves especially useful for a lot of the problems we work on.

Tim

Senior Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

During the Engineering Palooza event three years ago, a group of 25 engineers, spent a week in Boulder just brainstorming ideas and talking about our next-gen infrastructure. The sheer brain power in that room was absolutely amazing! Since then, the team has grown, ideas have expanded, and we’re tackling more complex problems than ever before.

Arvind

Principal Lead Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Those moments usually involve us looking at vast volumes of data to answer a question or inform a decision. A few examples are investigating how a client uses a certain feature, so we can build a new one to increase efficiency, or helping partners write an attribution model or build a custom report, so they can gain new insights from their data.
