Centro delivers software and services to automate digital media operations for more than 1,000 leading agencies and brands. 

Our comprehensive ad tech platform, Basis, supports the planning, reporting, and financial reconciliation of direct, programmatic, search, and social media, all in one place. 

We are deeply committed to building software that will change the ad tech industry for the better and are equally dedicated to building an inclusive culture of highly motivated individuals who create a positive and supportive environment together. We invest in our culture and support our employees so they can do their best work. 

Centro is headquartered in Chicago, with beautiful offices also in Toronto, Dallas, Denver, and New York to name a few. Post-COVID, many of us will be returning to one of our offices (by choice, not requirement -- we believe results matter more than where they are produced). Our employees have the flexibility to work in one of our office locations, completely remote, or a hybrid of the two. Please note, we are hiring on a remote working basis only in the U.S. and Canada.

Technology is at the core of what we do. Centro’s innovative Engineering team designs and develops new features and integrations for Basis, our industry-leading, comprehensive software solution. Our platform processes over 300 billion events per day and uses machine learning to automate and simplify the entire digital campaign process. 
This team is all about data—and in order to create value from the massive amount of data we collect, engineering leverages their dynamic Data Engineering, Data Science, and Business Intelligence teams to create insights that benefit the industry as a whole.

Other ways you will contribute to the team are by: 

  • Collaborating with developers, product managers, designers, and testers to build great solutions to complex digital advertising problems. 
  • Integrating Centro’s software with external systems. Ad tech is an ecosystem. Centro wins by working with everyone from ad servers, exchanges, DMPs, billing and reconciliation platforms. 
  • Working on projects spanning our entire stack, including our React UI, Rails middle-tier, Java services, databases, caches, and external API. 
  • Participating in a collaborative software development process. Lend and receive feedback on RFCs and pull requests. 
  • Building and extending Centro’s culture of growth and self-improvement. We expand our skills with lightning talks, lunch and learns, book clubs, and the occasional fun programming exercise. 

  • 5 years or more of professional software experience. 
  • Strong grasp of data modeling complex business domains, microservice architecture, API design, SQL, and data pipelines 
  • Experience planning and building production-level applications leveraging a modern web software stack. Our web application is primarily built with React, Ruby on Rails, and is hosted on AWS. 
  • Knowledge and fluency in the tools used to build and maintain software: Git, Unix/Linux environments, and automated testing tools. 

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field 
  • Experience with entire development cycle of projects 
  • Excited by a fast-paced product development environment 
  • Passion for Ad-Tech 

  • Ruby, Java, JavaScript, React.js

We take care of our people and believe that Centro’s success depends on the growth and well-being of each one of our team members.
