adjoe’s Demand Solutions team builds modern user interfaces and software and powers its analytics in the dashboard with state-of-the-art databases like Druid. All to give end users the insights they need. The team provides KPIs by APIs in milliseconds and supports adjoe’s partners by offering the highest availability without outages.

What You Will Do

    • Support partners by providing them with raw or aggregated data based on their business needs – we believe in data transparency and well-documented open APIs.
    • Collaborate with our Data Science team to solve complex math problems used to optimize our ML algorithms that are dedicated to delivering the right ads to the right users and integrating their solutions into adjoe’s application.
