Ruby Developer Senior & Junior

WordWatch is looking for a new talent!

We are an international company with headquarters in Silicon Valley in the U.S. and offices in Kraków and Amsterdam. We create web applications for small and medium companies to help them advertise on Google. We operate in the very dynamic environment of Adwords advertising. Currently we are looking for an experienced front to back Ruby on Rails programmer. Your main task will be to enhance and evolve our existing web applications: www.wordwatch.com & www.datafeedwatch.com

 

WordWatch & DataFeedWatch

They are both web applications for companies that advertise on Google:

WordWatch = Automated Bid Management. Advertisers bid on keywords. The bid is a maximum cost per click that they will be willing to pay. These bids have to be monitored and modified constantly. WordWatch does that automatically (by deploying algorithms instead of a human) and gets its customers more clicks for less cost.

DataFeedWatch = Data Feed Optimization. Web shops that want to advertise their products on Google Shopping must export a data feed from their eCommerce platform to Google. However, the feed often needs to be modified to meet Google’s requirements en to advertise more effectively. DataFeedWatch is a tool for advertisers to make those modifications to their data feed.

Senior & junior

  •     Systems Administration – Though our server and storage needs are outsourced (and you will have access to their support staff 24/7), this position does require basic Linux server admin skills.
