Hi *,

Please accept my apologies in advance for being off-topic.
We are currently searching (high and low) for passionate Lua programmers for Berlin for a leading multinational provider of real-time ad trading platforms.

The positions are all new and we want to drive the expansion across Europe and decided that Berlin was a great choice given the great local tech-scene.
Altogether we're looking for around 10-12 engineers.

Company overview is in a few sentences:
- privately owned and very tech-driven (CEO is not some sales or financial guy but well known within the on Computational Theory research community).
- develops media trading systems which are used by major companies like Google, Yahoo, Yandex, Facebook & Bing.
- system is used to answer complex computational questions around probability, data processing and predict potential user behavior, user-interest and response over which advertisements to deliver.

From an engineering perspective this is highly challenging as it operates in a High-Availability/High-Traffic environment and requires Real-Time processing to decide what ads get displayed. A lot of parameters are being taken into consideration to decide what content gets delivered (a problem which is essentially NP-hard). The solution is cloud based (SaaS) and work is structured within agile teams with fast deployment cycles. On the market since many years and headquartered in the UK but with offices all around the world. (multicultural, multinational)

Open to accept applications from candidates based outside Germany because we want to attract really the strongest candidates and therefore place no limits on geography in the search. Talk is cheap, show me the code (as Linus Torvalds once said). Therefore visa sponsorship will be provided for the right candidate.

The job:
✓ Proven track record of previous projects and strong passion for Open Source Technologies and High-Traffic, High-Availability Software platforms.
✓ Working on complex high load projects deployed across the world;
✓ Development of business logic in form of Lua programs for in-house Internet advertisement platform;

✓ Support of offline backend data processing programs in Perl and/or Python;
✓ Coordination with other teams on integration issues;
✓ Direct discussions on implementation details with company clients;
✓ Analysis of system behavior in production.

✓ Experience in Lua from 2 years to x years (any seniority, if you just graduated we#d like to see some projects you maybe did on the side) ;
✓ Strong focus on algorithm and system performance & experience;
✓ Ability to work with complicates business logic;
