What We Look For
Quantcast’s core competencies lie in large-scale, real-time data processing and analysis. Big data, predictive modeling, interesting data sets, insightful analysis and uniquely powerful tools are at the center of what we do, which makes working on any of the engineering teams a challenging yet cool and exciting experience. You’ll learn a ton from our sharp, collegial team — we pride ourselves on pushing quality code quickly within a nimble, agile environment.
