We are seeking a highly talented Senior Software Engineer who can contribute brilliantly to our team located in Belfast.
SpotX is based in the US and expanding operations internationally, including expanding our Engineering office here. This role will include leading and managing a team of engineers. We are a fast-paced but casual environment with highly talented peers. You will be versatile, disciplined and enjoy focusing on new challenges in the ad tech space.

Be part of a cross functional engineering team
Assess and continuously improve the development lifecycle
Influence the direction of our products and technology choices

What your day-to-day will look like:
Daily life at SpotX is all about the code we write. You’ll start most days with a coffee or snack from the kitchen while you organize yourself for your day. After standup, you’ll spend the majority of your day at the keyboard doing what you do best: slinging code that reads as well as it functions. Meetings? Schmeetings… we value your time. Sometimes you will work with a partner (we love pair programming), and sometimes you’ll work with your best set of headphones. Front end? Back end? Where do you like to work? In either case, you will also write the tests that back up your code.
Throughout the day, you may take a break to head to the whiteboard with one of your teammates to help them work through design or review code so that it can be merged to the baseline. At some point, you may be invited to a meeting to discuss or plan work that is coming soon. We love new ideas, and we love solving problems together, even if it’s over a game of pool.
