Available Positions

Vertical Sight is an innovative digital agency that focuses on storytelling across platforms. We keep creative, strategy and media buying all under one roof, which enables us to build and execute sophisticated digital campaigns that drive tangible business results for some of the biggest brands in the world.

We believe in marketing to consumers based on the year we live in, which means that in 2016. Vertical Sight is based in Salt Lake City, UT. 

Looking for individuals who are interested in transforming the way that advertising works, and who are eager to use technology as the catalyst for change. As a data driven group of engineers, we believe that tremendous value can be added to advertising when the right tasks can be abstracted, and evaluated programmatically.

General Qualifications

  • You adapt quickly, and are comfortable not always having a long runway.  The landscape we work in is nascent, and rapidly changing.
  • You firmly believe there is a line between the tasks best suited for individuals, and those best suited for machines. You are constantly looking to re-draw that boundary.
  • You are perpetually curious. We value individuals who can not only provide first-class solutions, but can also ask the right questions.
  • You enjoy working on a small team, and the challenge of juggling responsibilities so that above all else, deadlines are met.
  • You are interested in the space, and not just its applications with regards to data science. We believe the best technology comes from a true understanding of the problem, which requires a willingness to absorb as much “context” as possible.
  • You love to solve problems by creating software that scales. We never want to build the same solution twice, and solving a problem for one person should solve that same problem for everyone else. Our job is to make the rest of the company more efficient.

Responsibilities

  • Learn and work with the entire tech stack
