About CRITEO [CRTO]
Criteo delivers personalized performance marketing at an extensive scale. Measuring return on post-click sales, Criteo makes ROI transparent and easy to measure. Criteo has over 1,200 employees in 21 offices across the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, serving over 6,000 advertisers worldwide with direct relationships with over 8,000 publishers.
In order to support the company through its significant growth and to enhance and nurture the company reputation, we are seeking a talented, enthusiastic Senior Software Engineer to join our team in Palo Alto.
Our R&D team of 250+ engineers worldwide is building the next generation of digital advertising technologies that allow us to manage billions of ad impressions every month. A few figures:
•7 datacenters on 3 continents
•More than 2500 servers
•30B HTTP requests and 1.2B unique banners displayed per day
•Peak traffic: 500K HTTP requests per second
Our engineers develop the infrastructure that allows us to serve this high volume of ads and manage our advertisers’ inventory and our publisher partners. We are working in a very fast-paced release cycle and are adding new capabilities weekly and even daily.
•Design, architect and build systems that make bid decisions in under 50ms, half a million times per second, across three continents and seven datacenters, 24/7.

•Develop open source projects. As we are working at the forefront of technology, we are dealing with problems that few have faced. We’re big users of open source, and we’d like to give back to the community.
