A strong engineering team that tackles massive scale issues, fosters individual growth, and invests in culture fit.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsTapjoy is one of those unique opportunities where an engineer can make a big difference since the company is still relatively small yet the scale is massive. There are a lot of hard problems to tackle and new technologies to learn / evaluate.

Tapjoy's engineering managers also put a strong emphasis on helping to mentor and grow their team. If you're looking to be surrounded by smart folks, this is a good place to be. Mobile advertising isn't the the sexiest sounding product, but between the people and the technologies it's a great environment.

Over the past year, Tapjoy also focused on re-organizing the company and building a great team from the ground up. There's now a pretty strong Product / Engineering group leading there, looking to level-up the company. One year ago, Tapjoy wasn't in a great place for all teams... a lot of that has turned around since then.

ConsFrom an engineering perspective, Tapjoy still has a lot of room to grow. It's sometimes difficult to work through the tech debt that's built up over the years. Cross-office communication needs to be more effective. The on-boarding process for new engineers needs to be more efficient. These are all growing pains.

From a product perspective, Tapjoy needs to find a way to stand out other than through their scale / audience.
