L2 Support at Index is different - we don’t have customers in the traditional sense of the word: we support a group of highly technical users including internal Index teams (Analysts, Commercial, Engineering) and representatives from our Publishers or Demand Partners, who depend on our products to see transparent data about their campaigns. We work closely with our product and engineering teams to recommend features or enhancements that improve user experience and product efficiency.

We are a global technology company that connects the largest publishers and marketers across the globe through programmatic advertising. We ensure publishers are able to secure their bottom line so they can provide content to consumers and bring news and information to society at large. Our mission is to democratize digital advertising, all while helping marketers reach the audiences that matter most to them across digital channels. For over 20 years, IX has been known as the change agents of digital advertising – innovators who help shape how our industry reacts to new challenges and shifts in the market. As a result, we’ve been able to partner with some of the most prominent players in the media industry including Hearst, Disney, and Meredith Corporation among many others.

We are looking for a L2 Services Engineer to join the team that operates as a single point of contact for end users needing assistance. The ideal candidate for this role must have a solid technical background in addition to exceptional prioritization, time management and communication skills. You must also have a firm comprehension of how software is developed, high understanding of the linux terminal and exposure to a software intensive environment.

Here’s what we want:

  • Technical: The goal when a ticket is received is to resolve the issue rather than push the ticket to another team. You will use problem solving techniques to dig in to find the root cause of the issue and fix it where possible by updating database tables or building software to increase efficiency
  • Dynamic: L2 is one of our most vibrant teams within Engineering and you need to not only bring the skills to do the job, but the right mix of passion and personality to complement this team. Someone who takes initiative will thrive in this role as we want new ideas mixed with a lot of energy to make things happen
  • Organized: You will report all issues via tracking system (JIRA), determine appropriate priority, triage and escalate all high priority issues to seniors and/or manager

Here’s what you’ll be doing:

  • Build upon your professional experience in a software engineering role and expertise by supporting a global exchange and its features
  • Working with databases such as MySQL and technologies such as Golang, JavaScript, Perl, and Python to root cause issues and follow your code all the way to production using orchestration layers such as Kubernetes
  • Use clear and concise communications skills to solicit critical information and share important updates
  • Work quickly to resolve all ticketed issues that are submitted. This takes a high degree of problem solving, technical skills and logic
  • Collaborate within the L2 team, as well as other departments across IX such as Product, Commercial, and other Engineering teams. Comfortable working cross-functionally is absolutely essential in this role

Why you’ll love working here:

  • Our teams are built around cooperation, teamwork, and respect
  • We don't have a dress code and offer flexible work hours
  • Paid vacation, 12 incidental sick days per year, and 5% RRSP matching
  • 100% company paid comprehensive
