JavaScript Job Details

You might not realize it but digital out-of-home is all around you; from the billboards in Times Square, to the TVs at gas pumps, screens at electric vehicle charging stations, elevators, the grocery check-out aisle and everything in between. Our mission is to power that global digital signage ecosystem. We’ve built software solutions that can run entire signage networks and an end-to-end marketplace for programmatic advertising exclusively for digital out-of-home.

About us:

Vistar Media is a rapidly growing global software & advertising technology company. In addition to our industry leading technology (we’ve been recognized as AdExchanger’s 2021 & 2020 Top Programmatic Power Players, and Street Fight’s Innovator Awards’ Best Ad Platform 2019, among others), we’re proud of our team and the positive, supportive culture we’ve built. We’re scaling our teams globally; join us!

About the role:

A big part of Vistar’s mission is to make the screens out in the world (digital signage) smart enough to react to a variety of data inputs, and then use that data to build a dynamic, engaging experience on the fly. The connected devices team builds the backbone technology that powers internet connected screens and other types of hardware.

We are currently seeking full-stack engineers to help grow our connected devices division. You'll be part of a team focused on IoT and Smart Cities projects. You will be part of a highly skilled engineering team and be able to make an immediate impact. As one of the early team members, you will play an integral role in shaping up our core technology. Your work will be highly visible and critical to our success. You will be exposed to a variety of technologies from networking to desktop applications on multiple operating systems and you will have the chance to learn and own parts of the system.

What you'll do:

  • Work collaboratively on a dynamic team to deliver solutions to complex problems.
  • Write clean, maintainable, and testable code for high-reliability, distributed, desktop-like applications.
  • Interface with clients for production support and requirements gathering.
  • Daily design, development and debugging of local and remote systems.
  • Participate in code reviews and knowledge sharing.
  • Take ownership of complex projects and deliver solutions with unclear or incomplete requirements; drive them forward to fill the gaps.
  • Design scalable solutions in the IoT space where tens of thousands of devices connect at a time.

What experience we're looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience in software development.
  • Experience with the full stack—from the database to CSS.
  • Expertise in at least one compiled, one interpreted language and one web framework.
  • Experience in GoLang, TypeScript, and JavaScript.
  • Expertise in web technologies.
  • Experience with developing complex software systems with production quality deployment, monitoring and reliability.
  • Understand HTTP and Websockets.
  • Be able to decompose complex business requirements into a working solution.
  • Experience with signage technologies, embedded devices, IoT devices, connected screens, and advertising is preferred.
  • Expertise in Linux (knowledge of drivers on Linux a plus).

What we offer:

  • Flexible, fun start-up environment and culture
  • An approachable and accessible C-Suite
  • Comprehensive health benefits
  • 401k + match
  • Unlimited PTO and summer Fridays
  • Company-wide and team specific entertainment budgets for both in-person and virtual team building
  • A flexible hybrid work environment, with a fully stocked kitchen, weekly catered lunches, and casual attire while in office (fully remote is an option for some roles)
  • Biweekly expensed lunch perk for fully remote employees
  • Sponsored Volunteer Events and Vistar Gives Back program
  • An awesome and supportive bunch of people to work with and learn from
If you’re ambitious, highly driven and interested in making a big impact at a rapidly growing company, Vistar is the place for you. Apply to join our team!
