    Vistar Media is looking for a Mid-Senior Go/Golang Engineer

    You might not realize it but digital out-of-home is all around you; from the billboards in Times Square, to the TVs at gas pumps, screens at electric vehicle charging stations, elevators, the grocery check-out aisle and everything in between. Our mission is to power that global digital signage ecosystem. We’ve built software solutions that can run entire signage networks and an end-to-end… marketplace for programmatic advertising exclusively for digital out-of-home.

    About us:

    Vistar Media is a rapidly growing global software & advertising technology company. In addition to our industry leading technology (we’ve been recognized as AdExchanger’s 2021 & 2020 Top Programmatic Power Players, and Street Fight’s Innovator Awards’ Best Ad Platform 2019, among others), we’re proud of our team and the positive, supportive culture we’ve built. We’re scaling our teams globally; join us!

    Our team at Vistar Media is made up of engineers from a variety of backgrounds and expertise. This makes it the perfect place to learn from seasoned engineers to help expand your knowledge of a new programming language or technology and to make a big impact on our products and services. Our engineers work closely with our Product team week-to-week to develop new lines of business and add to our existing feature set. At Vistar, we value code quality and have a rigorous code review process. The responsibility is shared across the team, with each member participating.

    We are looking for a passionate Senior Software Engineer to design and develop software solutions. We also encourage mentorship through pair programming to help bring our team to the next level. Senior Software Engineers are expected to participate in these activities and set the standard for the team.

    Our ideal candidates are familiar with current trends in web technology, and have extensive experience in at least one of the languages used in our code base. You should be able to work independently with little supervision, along with excellent organization and problem-solving skills.

    Ultimately, the role of the Senior Software Engineer is to build (and enable their teammates to build) high-quality, performant and well-tested software that complies with coding standards and quality expectations of the leadership team and our clients.

    • Have a deep understanding of the business case behind your team’s work: who benefits from its implementation and why?

    • Troubleshoot, debug, and upgrade existing systems


    • At least 10 years of relevant work experience in software development
    • Excellent knowledge of relational databases and experience with their design and implementation
