Software Engineer (Front-End)
Intent Media isn’t your usual company. Our work is powered by the premise that every person at Intent Media is unique, possessing a distinct set of skills, personality, and passions. We embrace our collective talents to tackle technical challenges, refine our successfully disruptive business ideas and co-create one of the most human and inspiring work cultures out there. We are a team of collaborators, valuing and rewarding shared success over individual heroics.
As a Software Engineer at Intent Media, you’ll code and innovate on products that are changing the e-commerce industry. Our engineering teams help the world’s leading travel companies to serve tens of millions of ads every day around the world. These ads provide an exceptional user experience to help shoppers find and compare prices, while simultaneously increasing brand profitability.
In our engineering work, we balance cutting-edge technologies with industry-proven practices. Our polyglot approach means you will see a variety of languages, libraries, and databases. Our agile way of working is founded on many years of experience; you will be working with accomplished innovators in the software community.
What You Will Do:
We believe that engineers are most effective when they are involved in the whole lifecycle of software development: conceiving new features designing and coding the change, testing, deploying, and support. Don't worry if you don't know how to do everything at first - you'll learn the essentials through mob & pair programming with experienced engineers on your team.
The role is with our Placements team where you'll be responsible for developing dynamic user experiences and their underlying technology, powered by our robust media and decisioning platform.
Intent Media is looking for bright and ambitious software engineers to bring their fresh perspective to our team of thoroughly awesome humans and dogs.
- You have 3+ years of relevant experience
- You have experience with, or interest in, any of the following: backend development, databases, and SQL, functional programming, mobile (e.g. iOS or Android), UX design, etc.
- You have the flexibility to work on all aspects of delivering working software, including analysis, design, automated testing, cross-team collaboration, and support.
Other aspects we’d love to see in an ideal candidate:
- You are experienced with Test Driven Development and treat your test code with the same respect as production code.
- You have experience working with the AWS cloud platform (ECS, AWS Lambda, Kinesis, API Gateway, etc.)
- You have experience working in a quick-paced, iterative development process
- You have experience working with Java, Node JS, and/or Elixir-based backend web services.
Intent Media uses predictive analytics to help travel brands maximize revenue per visitor.

Every day, we’re inspired by two pursuits. First, we’re building novel products that are upending e-commerce.

We’ve been included on the Crain’s top 100 places to work in NYC list for six years running!
