Quality Assurance Apprentice 

Type: Apprentice | Department: Development

Our company is built to help companies manage, grow, and influence their marketplace. Our clients range from venture-backed early stage companies, to trade associations and nonprofits, and to Fortune-level global enterprises.  

Our technology empowers marketers to produce their business’ best advertising results by making the media buying, management, and optimization process intuitive and intelligent through our AI-powered advertising management product, Blueprint.

This role will report to our other developers and will actively develop for our live product. The intention of this role is to find an entry level developer that fits well with our team, learns how to develop in a real world setting, and produces a quality work product so they can move into a full time role with our company.  

For graduates, our apprenticeship program provides real-world developer experience. Our program prepares apprentices to take on difficult roles in the expanding community of digital advertising.

  • Impact – We reward impact over time. We seek efficiency, accuracy, and excellent communicators.  

Our technology has a solid foundation – we’ve built a proprietary environment that manages our workflow and our clients’ data. It lets us optimize their complex, cross-channel campaigns in unique ways that let them achieve steadily better results.  

Your role will be to support the rate at which we are developing the front end of the application.
