Job Description

LiveIntent is looking for an enterprising Data Engineer, full of ideas, preferably with an interest in data science to join our highly competent development team in Copenhagen! Our team in Copenhagen is responsible for the development and deployment of the company’s next-generation technology closely collaborating with the company’s other branches in New York and Berlin.
Our team in Copenhagen currently consists of a few veterans from adtech as well as 20 handpicked new highly competent and focused colleagues who have joined since the mid 2018. Because of this, many exciting tasks are constantly flowing in from the rest of the organization, so we would like to expand the team with even more creative and clever minds. We are looking for a Data Engineer but prefer a candidate with a passion for both Data Engineering and Science.
We are looking for a Data Engineer for a team focused on a scalable data platform that deals with the development of identity services and the delivery of data. A part of our business that is undergoing rapid growth.
During the last six months we have finished the following projects and more:
Implementation of new identity products as Scala/Spark jobs handling large volumes of data
Investigation of anomalies in deliveries by using data science disciplines
Ingesting PII data in a high security environment
Distribute audiences of users identified by internal data to DSPs
Automate the process of identifying dormant email subscribers
Developing an algorithm to improve IP Address classification
We want to have completed the following challenges to solve by the end of 2023:
Email Intelligence adding more augmentation (Writing new Spark jobs to add new features to our product portfolio.)
Using the PII data in new products
New products based on identified CTV users
About the Job:
We are looking for a Data Engineer who can design, develop and maintain complex software solutions. You will be able to plan and organize your own schedule to a great extent, but you are expected to be able to work closely with the other developers on the team as well as stakeholders in the company’s international product division.
You will be part of all development phases, from initial discussions and exchange of ideas, to prototyping, development, testing, deployment, maintenance/improvement and reporting.
In the Copenhagen office we believe in freedom and flexibility under responsibility and insist on a high level of competence. Our development process is as a result of a loosely defined hybrid of agile methods and rapid prototyping.
Your Profile:
You have a couple of years professional experience with software development and are passionate about learning new things. You are interested in back-end technologies and architecture. You may also be interested in math, statistics, machine learning or adtech technology.
You have one of the heavier degrees such as computer science or software engineering. You have practical experience with actual programming, and preferably also have a practical and/or deep theoretical understanding of some of the following:
Data processing in Spark
Programming in Scala
Basic knowledge about Amazon Web Services
Basic knowledge of orchestration in Airfloq
You approach problems analytically and solutions pragmatically. You are full of good ideas, able to see opportunities and weaknesses in other people’s ideas, and able to find ways to discuss ideas in a distanced and constructive manner. You love to go in depth with different topics and are curious about learning about things within new subjects. You want to understand and get involved with the problems the company is facing. You thrive in a dynamic environment where work priorities can change, and therefore tasks may not always be finished. You can hand over tasks, but prefer to finish them yourself. You are able to work independently and enterprisingly.
The Company:
LiveIntent, one of the world’s largest people-based marketing platforms, connects 2,500 publishing and advertising brands with over 250 MM verified people every month across all types of media. With the anonymized email address at the center of its industry-leading identity graph, LiveIntent provides brands with solutions that help them monetize, acquire, and retain real people, even where cookies don’t work. LiveIntent enriches a brands’ data, making it possible for them to deepen their understanding of their audiences, and more effectively market to people wherever they are present and paying attention. LiveIntent is home to over 250 people worldwide with offices in New York, Chicago, Berlin, and Copenhagen.
LiveIntent Copenhagen started as a Danish startup company in 2013 and was acquired by LiveIntent in November 2015. We develop and operate both an online, real-time service that receives billions of requests from all over the world and from other LiveIntent components, and an offline, batch-oriented analytical data processing pipeline that prepares data for the online service by processing billions of data points.
We Offer
You can look forward to being a key player in a challenging and dynamic developmental story where you will be part of a team with some of the industry's hottest talents. There will be rich opportunities to learn from others, and you will have the flexibility to dive into experiments on your own. We are passionate about new solutions, technologies and algorithms, but pragmatic in our choice of solutions.
We believe in freedom and flexibility under responsibility so that office hours can be adapted to your life as long as meetings are covered. If you need to work from home one day, it is completely fine, as long as you live up to what is expected. We are an international company, with frequent contact between the departments in Berlin and New York City. The position is located in our office in Copenhagen.
