Tatari is on a mission to democratize TV advertising. We help some of your favorite new products and brands - like Calm, Daily Harvest, and Rothy’s - grow their business through broadcast and streaming TV. We combine our sophisticated media buying platform with proprietary analytics to turn TV advertising into an automated, digital-like experience.

Our team includes founders and leaders from Google, Microsoft, Stripe, Shazam and Facebook. We are growing our product, engineering, and data science teams rapidly as we accelerate our mission to automate the complex landscape of managing and measuring television advertising. We have a long-term goal to make marketing on TV available to businesses of any size.

We are looking for multiple mid-level backend engineers to join our Engineering team. In this role, you will contribute to the design and development of new product features across our platform, including media buying, measurement, and client experience.

  • Help to spec and execute both small and large feature projects, in close collaboration with other members of the engineering team.
  • Wrangle large amounts of data using PostgreSQL, Aurora, and Redshift.
  • Architect our services (Python, Ruby, no Java), figure out the best way to run them (on AWS and other platforms), and keep them running (preferably without late night PagerDuty alerts!)
  • Help us maintain and improve code quality, performance, and system reliability.


  • Good understanding of software fundamentals
  • A drive to create excellent work with a sense of urgency
  • An interest in data, analytics, and machine learning
  • Strong SQL and data model design skills
  • 3+ years experience building scalable systems and backend services
  • Experienced with Python
