AdGear is seeking a Backend Engineer for a full-time position located in Montreal, QC.


Who we are AdGear is an advertising technology company located in Montreal that has been recently acquired by Samsung Electronics, but operates as an independent, fully-owned subsidiary. This means that we get to work on big complex projects with stakeholders located across the globe.

What you’ll do As a Backend Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, building, deploying, and maintaining components of a high-volume, distributed real-time bidding platform.
