Varick Media Management is an MDC Partners Company. VMM was founded in 2008 to deliver on the promise of audience-driven media – the idea of buying audiences, rather than pages. Recently, VMM is in the early stages of building out an engineering team to develop the necessary tools to compete with the most progressive trading desks in the industry.
This year the engineering team has built a Pixel Management Platform which cookies and maps users on the web. The platform generates logs that are collecting large amounts of information ranging from interaction to visitation on our client’s websites. We’re currently building a client facing interface that will interpret this data, as well as log files from our media buying business, and make it digestible to clients through a web-based interface.
The Platform Engineer would join the team tasked with creating this interface. Their focus should be web-based development (front-end) but they will need to understand the workings of the Pixel Management Platform in details. Platform Engineers report to the Director of Yield Operations, Data & Analytics.
