Stories of our engineers

VideoAmp empowers me to be the most powerful and authentic version of myself.

First of all, folks should know that Ad-tech is high tech. We attack tough problems and come up with solutions that can impact literally millions of dollars per day across the advertising marketplace, all while being constrained in terms of time and resources. On a project, every member of the team is essential; we don't have the luxury of over-resourcing. This means that our engineers are excited to be here. It’s not about clocking-in and out of an 8-hour day. We get up in the morning, and execute throughout the day with a strong sense of purpose. The company perks — from personal training to dinner club — keep us energized, engaged with each other, and ready to take on the next round of problem-solving at our best. I look around at my fellow engineers and coworkers in other parts of the company and I can see the qualities I want to embody in the future. In just a few short years, I may be in their shoes, and it’s comforting to know that trajectory is not just possible, but is achievable and even expected of me.

I was entrusted with big scale projects.

I knew one thing about what I wanted in my career. I wanted to slay a dragon. I wanted to take on the largest data problems I could get my hands on. So naturally, I initially sought out Google, Facebook, and Twitter. You know...big tech companies with well-known, big data issues. After hearing from some of my classmates who managed to land similar positions, I realized I would be solving big data problems, but in very small, somewhat boring pieces. Then I discovered the powerhouse that is VideoAmp, a small company taking a very big bite out of a very big problem. After I joined, I quickly realized we’re solving similar and sometimes even bigger problems than the likes of Google and Twitter; we process in the range of one million+ QPS, using hundreds of clients running on 60 cores with 60G of RAM, all with a small team. Seeing what our platform is capable of gives me the great satisfaction of knowing I’m doing exactly what I set out to do.

I was part of a small cross-functional team (like the Justice League).

The engineers are like the heroes of the Justice League. We tackle problems as a team with each member bringing their own unique set of super-powers to the solution. The last big problem we finished consisted of 1 data engineer, 2 RTB engineers, 1 API engineer, and was led by our fearless VPs of Engineering and Product. Every decision was run down the line of viewpoints, each was trusted and respected. The end effect was better of course, but I was amazed at the very visible downstream effects. Finance got better reports and client success was freed up from painful tasks. While we didn't get the key to the city, the appreciation was felt throughout the company.
