Some of our Arsenal
On the Vistar Media engineering team, we never stop looking for our next addition. We’re kinda hoping that addition is you. We are located in Old City, Philadelphia.
We’re a startup with an established, well-tested codebase, but we aren’t afraid to shake things up. We want to solve our problems with the right tools, whether they’re cutting-edge, or tried-and-true. We’re happy to explore new territory (who isn’t?), but we won’t jump on something shiny for the sake of it. Our engineers work with many different languages and platforms every day. If this gets you excited, we’d love to hear from you.
It sure would be nice if you:
We’ll consider baking you a cake if you:
Nestled within the window-lined walls of Vistar Media’s new office at 400 Market St., the company’s software engineers are hard at work. The seven-year-old adtech startup offers its company-hoodie-clad engineers an open floor plan that facilitates a collaborative environment. Vistar Media’s Product and Business teams are located in New York or other satellite locations, leaving engineers to enjoy the Philly office all to themselves.
The quiet workspace is filled mostly with the sound of tapping keyboards as engineers work their way through the day’s tickets, coupled with team members offering suggestions and answering each other’s questions. Conference rooms named after landmark Philly waterways like the Schuylkill River and Pennypack Creek allow employees to take calls in private or buckle down to work distraction free.
Despite the word “quiet” being a dominant adjective for describing Vistar Media’s culture, the company is obsessed with languages. Engineers are fluent in coding languages from Java and Go to TypeScript and Python, while books like Seven Languages in Seven Weeks dot the communal bookshelf for anyone looking to pick up a new skill — or hone an existing one.
Job candidates can expect a phone interview, then a take-home coding puzzle meant to showcase their creative problem-solving and decision-making skills. From there, candidates tackle a final technical interview. Vistar Media is a fast-paced engineering shop, but if you’re willing to learn — a major quality Vistar Media looks for in applicants — the company and your coworkers will champion each person’s skills and work-life balance.
