Senior Developer

The Job

Cybrid Media is looking for a senior full-stack developer to help build the company’s content and ad network from the ground up. For over four years, Cybrid Media has helped some of the world’s largest online publications grow their audience and monetize social traffic, and is now looking to bring in-house much of the development talent necessary for the next tier of growth.

To give candidates an idea of scale, the company is looking to establish a tech infrastructure that allows it to build on the past 12 months, which saw 300 million visitor referrals to its publishers, 25 million hours of video distributed, and partnerships with over 100 of the most impactful social influencers. If building on these numbers sounds like a challenge that you’re up to, get in touch and let’s talk.

The company seeks a professional, driven candidate capable of getting great work done (by themselves and with others) in a casual and fun office. The position will be responsible for laying the framework for the company’s technology resources for years to come, so candidates with vision, ambition, and enthusiasm are all welcome.

  • Expert-level experience or certification with Linux, PHP and MySQL required
  • Node.js and NoSQL data stores a bonus as we begin to work them into our technology mix
