Careers With Swoop

Join the Future of Search Advertising

We are a small team in a well-funded startup changing the way advertising affects 100+M people every week. We are looking for passionate people who love startup life and care about user experience, customer development, working with a diverse group of smart & experienced people, and having fun every day.

Our Business

Online advertising powers the free Web. On average, it sucks but it doesn’t have to. At Swoop we value user experience, which is why we have created search-centric programmatic advertising that consumers enjoy engaging with. We value results, which is why we significantly outperform traditional advertising alternatives. We also value simplicity, which makes us very easy to do business with.

Our Technology

We run in the cloud using HTML5/Javascript, Ruby on Rails, Java, Python, R, ElasticSearch, Redis, MongoDB, Hive/Hadoop, Resque, RabbitMQ and various natural language processing and machine learning technologies. We like to challenge the status quo and create elegant solutions to impossible problems. We run weekly sprints and often release several times per day. We know what it takes to build and ship great products. It’s why many of the previous companies we’ve been involved with have had significant exits. We pay it forward by being mentors, speakers and OSS contributors.

Our Space

We’ve mastered the Feng Shui of our workspace: whiteboards everywhere, natural light with no glare, height-adjustable desks, triple monitors and the fastest MacBooks money can buy. We didn’t want to spend our time commuting so we picked an office location that’s very easy to get to. We are next to the Alewife stop on the red line and an easy drive on Route 2. There are many restaurants in the area and our building has the best cafeteria we know of, short of the one at the Googleplex. It’s run by Whole Foods. Stop by. The burritos are on us.
