The Trade Desk is a global technology company with a mission to create a better, more open internet for everyone through principled, intelligent advertising. Handling over 600 billion queries per day (more than 100 times the query volume of search globally), our platform operates at an unprecedented scale. We have also built something even stronger and more valuable: an award-winning culture based on trust, ownership, empathy, and collaboration. We value the unique experiences and perspectives that each person brings to The Trade Desk, and we are committed to fostering inclusive spaces where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work every day.

Do you have a passion for solving hard problems at scale? Are you eager to join a dynamic, globally-connected team where your contributions will make a meaningful difference in building a better media ecosystem? Come and see why Fortune magazine consistently ranks The Trade Desk among the best small-medium-sized workplaces globally.

We are looking to hire a NoSQL Database Engineer to join our engineering team to continue building out our data-driven platform and support database related activities. Do you enjoy tuning, performance testing and troubleshooting, writing automation, and evaluating/influencing NoSQL database use cases? Does the idea of new technologies, hardware, and tuning systems to cutting edge performance sound fun to you?

With integrations into every major advertising exchange, we handle well over 4 trillion requests every month and growing – that's more page views and queries than Facebook, Google Search, and Google's entire network of websites combined – all serviced in single-digit-ms response times. Are you interested in working with fast data at scale? Do you want to push the edges of scale and responsiveness?


  • Be an Aerospike SME. You don’t need experience with Aerospike – we will train you. You will be a point of contact to review new use cases, answer questions, and respond to production issues. Aerospike is our standard for NoSQL database use cases and The Trade Desk is one of the largest Aerospike users in the world.
  • Be a member of our high-performance computing team that is responsible for managing and planning systems and data structures at scale in a global ecosystem, across multiple infrastructure providers (cloud and traditional datacenter).
  • Be responsible for provisioning new clusters, discussing and reviewing new use cases, capacity planning and management of the clusters - all with an eye on automation and scaling your work. Our NoSQL systems run at scale, with over 800 systems servicing near 4 trillion requests under 1ms daily - automation is key.
  • Encourage, improve, and build upon automation using Kubernetes, Ansible, Chef, and other languages/tools.
  • Benchmark and analyze hardware offerings to potentially improve performance or TCO of clusters globally or for niche use cases. Always keep an eye out for the next great hardware to test.
  • Perform regular cluster maintenance as needed by maintaining/developing necessary automation, apply updates such as kernel patches and daemon upgrades.
  • Create alarm definitions to prevent issues and adjust/remove alarm definitions to prevent alert fatigue.
  • Participate in a 24/7 on-call rotation (currently this is only around 3 hours/month).

  • Experience writing clean, maintainable, and well-tested code in any of the following languages: Python, Golang, Ruby, Java, Scala, or C#
  • Domain knowledge in one or more of the following:
    • Physical (on-prem) server internals, their management and operation
    • Linux operating system
    • Performing testing and tuning
    • GitOps tools such as Terraform, Ansible, Chef
  • Nice-To-Have:
    • NoSQL/Database knowledge is a huge plus, but we can teach you.
    • Cloud hosting environment experience
    • Kubernetes experience
    • Prometheus experience
