Switch Concepts

Switch Concepts is a fast expanding Internet technology company that builds and provides adserving platforms for UK and international clients. We work closely with online publishers and networks to maximise their advertising revenue. Each adserving platform we provide is individually tailored to our clients' business model and operational needs.

We use high-availability, high-performance web-driven scripts built on solid, tried technology whilst incorporating exciting new directions from 'cloud' through 'big data' and beyond. The excitement comes from handling hundreds of messages per second per node at the high-performance end through to managing many millions of data entries at the processing end.

Switch, the only British adserving platform, is at the cutting edge of the global digital advertising industry and is built on advanced proprietary technology. It is the first Publisher Trading Desk tool available, and through custom integrations acts as a gateway to the fast emerging Real Time Bidding (RTB) markets, and Data Management Platforms (DMPs). This enables our clients to take control of their web audience, and by leveraging the power of our unique delivery engine, they are able to maximise potential revenue.

Our growing team of high calibre engineers are capable of meeting the demands of a fast growing industry. We need graduates for whom coding is second nature. We want innovators that can solve big algorithmic and processing issues from infrastructure through to presentation. We are looking for individuals who are seeking an active role within a LAMP environment (and beyond - we actually use Lighttpd as well as Apache), have an interest in BIG-data (Hadoop, Cassandra, Nosql), like the idea of handling millions (if not billions) of http requests a day and enjoy working with a complex decision making engine. Our business is multi-discipline and fast growing and as such we have a fast evolving requirement for bright new talent so get in touch if you are interested in working with us.
