Red Pineapple Media distributes video advertising to more than 50 markets, and we've been expanding consistently since we started 6 years ago.
Our engineering team is built around a strong culture of teamwork. Code reviews, joint presentations and group decisions are standard for us. We'll often pick up the projector and do pair programming on the big wall of our office, or just sit together in one of our quiet rooms to prepare architectural changes or to give peer-to-peer feedback.
We care deeply about continual improvement, and have an RFC process in place to enable team members to influence our evolving standard and practices.
We're in an exciting phase right now as we're transitioning to programmatic buying and selling of advertisement space. The number of non-trivial challenges ahead is large, and the learning opportunities rich. From intelligently bidding for advertisement space in real time, to applying clustering and classification techniques to improve ad targeting, our future is full of opportunities for functional-programming goodness
Never a dull moment. Besides writing code, we also do our own DevOps, testing, retrospectives, planning, architecture, peer-to-peer evaluation, coffee and cooking
Every few months we organise in small teams around well-defined business objectives, and we have complete ownership over the approach and process used to achieve them. This includes: planning, work methodology, design, development and maintenance. We also decide when and how to tackle technical debt, and we are the sole owners of these decisions. Then, after some time, we reset the teams and choose new challenges to work on.
Even if your background is in non-functional programming, if you want to do functional programming then Red Pineapple Media is the place for you. You'll find as many challenges here as learning opportunities. You'll also have the chance to try new things and explore. We regularly hold research weeks where you can spend your time investigating and building anything you want.
We regularly hold team breakfasts, barbecues, and ping-pong matches. We're super animal friendly: 4 dog owners, 2 vegans, 1 vegetarian and a cat-loving CEO. Naturally, dogs are welcome in the office. But we also optimise for focus and have quiet rooms where you can do power-naps, meditate or just work in isolation.
We believe that when given independence and room to grow, people tend to do great things. If you want to learn something new, fix that annoying Elasticsearch performance problem or focus on creating nicer looking brandings or reports, it's up to you. As long as our business objectives are achieved, you own and control your time and what to do with it.
