About Quora :
The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people's heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access.
More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it.
Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.
About the Team :
Our engineering team works on challenging problems to achieve our mission at scale. We have a culture that's rooted in constantly learning and improving, and our engineers are encouraged to think big and experiment with new ideas.
We iterate quickly by using continuous deployment, which means that every commit goes live on our production servers within minutes, no matter what time it is.
Our engineers focus on creating polished products and writing high quality code by designing APIs and abstractions that are extensible and maintainable.
Everyone on the engineering team has a huge impact on our product and our company.
About the Role :
To fully achieve our mission to share and grow the world’s knowledge, we need to make sure that the knowledge on Quora will improve and last forever.
Revenue from our monetization efforts plays a critical role in empowering us to do that. Since we first launched our advertising platform, we've already grown to support thousands of advertisers who are reaching over 300 million monthly unique visitors on Quora.
We have continued to build new products from the ground up and tackle exciting challenges at scale around audience targeting, low-latency real-time ad delivery, and a suite of advertiser tools to create and optimize campaigns, to name just a few.
We're also expanding our monetization efforts beyond ads, including features to support creators on Quora.
As an engineer on the Monetization team, you'll work on efforts focused on generating revenue for the success of the company and mission to share and grow world's knowledge.
As a member of a highly cross-functional development team, you'll build data-intensive applications, systems and new products that will unlock future monetization opportunities for Quora.
This also includes defining, and shaping the experience of users, advertisers and businesses on Quora.
