About CreativeX:

CreativeX elevates the creative expression of data, building the global standard for creative quality. The world's biggest brands including Facebook, Unilever, Heineken and more use our technology and tools to make effective, data-driven creative decisions to achieve creative excellence at scale and maximize the impact of every creative decision through technology powered by machine learning.

We are growing our Engineering team with additional Software Engineer opportunities to help take us to the next stage of our journey. We are currently looking for a number of Mid-Level to Senior Level Backend Engineers to come and join our team in Portland, Oregon!


You'll be responsible for:

As a seasoned Software Engineer, you’ve seen a few things, designed a variety of solutions, and are ready to apply those skills to help pave the road to where CreativeX is going next. You care about writing quality code and driving improvements across the rest of the team. You're not afraid to speak up and help drive change with how we work as a team. You're passionate in understanding the business context for features built to drive better customer experience and adoption. To do this you'll work closely with the product team as you help build scalable, extendable, and well-tested product solutions.

Some useful skills that will allow you to hit the ground running:

  • Working with third party APIs (ex. Google, Meta, TikTok) to ingest data. This includes understanding authentication, knowing how to build solutions that are resilient to explicit and implicit errors, and understanding how to monitor data ingestion on an ongoing basis.
  • Creating and maintaining API endpoints for external developers. This requires knowing what a friendly and robust API looks like and understanding our business cases so that value is delivered appropriately.
  • Building out and maintaining a complex data pipeline. Data is crucial for analytics and we need to make sure that we are constantly capturing new kinds of data and meeting SLAs.

You will be expected to come into the Portland office at least 1-2 times per week.


Who you are:

Our ideal new teammate is someone who likes to learn new things and stretch themselves. We know lots of places say that, so what do we mean? If you have been experimenting with a new piece of tech on the weekends and think it would help us work better, then encourage us to test it out! We value engineers who love data and appreciate the quantitative side of life. People who look for an extremely agile environment and love to work on an autonomous but closely-knit team would thrive here. We're looking for people who'll actively want to make our technology stack (and our company) better! Also, it's important to us that the person who joins wants to contribute to growing the CreativeX as a whole. While your main job will be coding, we prefer to work with people who speak up and make their voice heard when it comes to other aspects of our product, including design, UX, and feature development. At CreativeX we encourage applicants of all backgrounds and identities to apply for roles that align with their own interests and career trajectory.

  • At least 3 years of relevant software engineering experience
  • Computer Science degree preferred but not required
