Software Engineer Apprenticeship - Frontend/Backend/Fullstack

What You'll Do:

Most of all, we are creators. From designing ground-breaking products to finding unique ways to solve technical challenges at an exceptional scale, our tech teams work with state-of-the-art methodologies to shape the future of advertising.

The Product Engineering team builds the products that make Criteo tick: from developing industry leading machine learning techniques, to building high scale/low latency real-time applications (over 5M QPS, handling over 300 Bn HTTP requests daily), to delivering first class client interfaces, both API and UI, with forward-thinking UX at their core, all using state of the art technology.

During your apprenticeship (1-3 years) and according to your choice, skills and interest, you can tackle one of the following subjects:

  • Backend: contribute to the introduction of a performance-oriented design in our core web applications.
  • Full stack: build an analytics application from the data pipeline to the front-end
  • Frontend: Design and implement a component in a web application that will be used to manipulate big JSON markup easily. The goal is to provide a tool to create or change layout banners in a simple and efficient way.
  • Quality improvement of our most valuable datasets, including fraud and low-relevance data detection.
  • In a team of 5-7, you will be working closely with your mentor to drive your project, design and ensure best practices are applied. You can ask questions and participate in all knowledge-sharing sessions/workshops, etc. You are encouraged to actively voice your ideas whilst learning how to build and ship quality code into production which will likely affect millions of users instantly.

Who You Are:

  • You are enrolled in school for study in Computer Science or Statistics/Math background.
  • Your school could provide an apprenticeship contract.
  • You know your coding basics and understand that the future of network engineering is software defined.
  • You are a strong communicator and a team player who can work efficiently with others and you are fluent in English.
  • You want to discover web-based applications and basic Linux knowledge.
  • Front-end experience with modern frameworks (Angular, React, ...) interests you
  • You want hands-on experience of the best practices in API design and development
  • You already have experience in Object Oriented Programming (C#, Python, Java...) or if you occasionally participate in coding competitions.
