We’re extremely happy to announce that we recently closed a new round of funding. The round of 20MSEK (approx $3M) was led by Industrifonden, that built and recently sold multi-billion-dollar analytics company QlikTech. More on what this means for our customers, for you (speaking of which, we’re hiring!!!) and the world in general is the topic for an upcoming post. But it’s all exciting stuff we can promise you that much!
For those of you who cannot wait, here’s our politically correct press release :)
We are looking for developers who enjoy the megalomanic pleasure that comes with deploying code to a big server cluster. You will work with our platform team building the systems that collect, crunch and serve the data that is the bread and butter of Burt’s products. Experience and knowledge of distributed, fault tolerant, concurrent systems is key. You think that Netflix’ Chaos Monkey is the best idea ever.
This position is full-time and based in our main office in Gothenburg, Sweden(*).
A man walks into a bar, and asks the bartender for a drink of water. The bartender pulls out a gun, points it at the man, and cocks it. The man says “Thank you” and leaves. What happened?
Do you ask the questions no one else thought of asking? Are you able to quickly dissect a problem into new unforeseen solutions? Does your solution to the above problem include multiple dimensions, classical music and secret conspiracies?
Burt is a company working with revolutionary ways of measuring how and why online display advertising works (or doesn’t). We are currently looking for someone who will share our goal of making the Internet a better place by providing actionable insights to our customers: advertisers, agencies and publishers.
If you are a high-performing team player that thrive on operational excellence, this job is certainly for you! At Burt you’ll develop deep and long lasting relationships with blue-chip online advertisers and publishers, helping them grow and improve their online business.
Burt is looking for talented business development managers to quickly identify new opportunities, effectively pitch our technology solutions in an ever changing competitive market and demonstrate results. An ideal candidate, is experienced in building relationships in large enterprises at senior and C-level, will focus on building meaningful long-term relations instead of ”selling”, have a knack for understanding complex eco-systems, and just maybe has Dale Carnegie’s famous book always on their nightstand.
We’re recruiting a Key Account Manager for our ever growing portfolio of online publisher, advertiser and agency clients. It is a uniquely varied role, requiring management of customer relations, sales, account management, expertise support as well as educating customers. The Key Account Manager own the long-term relationship with our clients, and are motivated by providing business solutions and creative solutions to specific customer needs.
Burt is looking to extend it’s Operations team with a Operations/Scalability Engineer.
Just as us, you’re heavily influenced by the DevOps movement. Your primary tools for operations is your ability to code and automate your server setups. You have experience from running large scale, high availability, low latency systems, preferably in a cloud environment. You also have to ability to analyze scalability issues using your own programming skill set, system profilers and/or load testing tools. Once you’ve done that you’ll often dive right in there and improve the code yourself. You’ve got the ability to say “No.” to both customers and our CTO in a way that they’ll both love you instead of secretly hate you.
The months follow our presentation at Cannes Lions has been extremely busy for us. The ”agile advertising” meme has caught on well and we’ve seen solid growth in the number of agencies, advertisers and campaigns running on our platform. As some of you may know, growing has been lots of fun but not entirely without pain…
In august we realized that our conventional Hadoop solution for data analysis wasn’t going to cut it for what we wanted to do, and when Åke started as our first full time designer in august it became clear just how much room we had for improving our visual design and user experience. So we did what we’ve always said we wouldn’t - we rewrote most it from scratch.
This is the first in a series of blog posts on online advertising metrics.
Agreement on what different metrics mean is key to put them to productive use. We are currently in the middle of writing up a dictionary for Rich, so that our users can better understand what they are looking at and make easier for them learn how to improve. But getting a proper definition of metrics is not easy, and looking at how other companies use their metrics is not much help.
So, it’s getting crowded at the Gothenburg office.
This week we’re adding four brilliant computer science grad students that will do their final theses on media fraud detection, and big data. Although we’ve already done our fair share of work in these areas, it’ll be very interesting to see what happens when ambitious genius’-in-the-making will question everything we’ve come up with so far :)
