About Moat

We help brands and media companies push the envelope on privacy-friendly models of advertising, help them make sound product decisions that involve running fewer ads, help make their ads load faster, fight botnets, and strive to de-fund fake news. We are a New York City-headquartered startup with a mission to help the world's top publishers and marketers make smarter decisions through real-­time data. Our analytics and intelligence software is used by The New York Times, Condé Nast, Kellogg's, P&G, Spotify, and hundreds of other major platforms and advertisers, and we have unique measurement integrations into Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and YouTube.

About the Opportunity 

  • Take ownership of a real-time analytics platform that receives tens of billions of HTTP requests per day, streams dozens of terabytes daily across a 400-node processing cluster on AWS, outputs hundreds of millions of rows nightly into aggregated storage, produces tens of thousands of customer-facing heatmaps per day, and is logged into and queried by thousands of happy users.
  • Own the health monitoring of all live systems.
  • Coordinate engineering efforts across several teams at Moat to address the most critical live-system bottlenecks on the horizon.
  • Take charge (help fix and communicate widely) when live-system incidents occur.
  • Report daily to the VPs of Engineering and CTO on progress on the most critical live-system projects across several teams.
  • Recruit and hire exceptional live ops engineers.

About You

  • Strong background in shining a light into large, complex systems.
  • Expertise in Linux and Python and familiarity with C.
  • Speed and nimbleness at debugging systems and applications.
  • Strong familiarity with AWS.
