About Rocket Fuel
Rocket Fuel is a fast-growing startup dedicated to pushing the boundaries of real-time advertising. We develop sophisticated real-time decision systems that bid in electronic marketplaces on behalf of advertisers for billions of advertising opportunities per day. These systems require equally sophisticated user interfaces to manage them and visualize the reams of data we collect about business metrics and user behavior. Rocket Fuel is now embarking upon an effort to integrate its best-of-breed back-end system with a next-generation front-end UI.
Our team is passionate about both the products we develop and the way in which we develop them. Our process is guided by the unix philosophy, agile methodology, and the principle of test-driven software development. Our culture is lively and inclusive: you will participate in pair programming, peer code reviews, technical talks, and hackathons. We have a state-of-the-art software engineering environment with distributed source control, full release cycle, and continuous deployment.
