Senior Software Engineer (Machine Learning)
The original Rokt band got together in 2011. From there we’ve grown to an amazing global ensemble of over 170 people in Sydney, New York, Melbourne, the Netherlands, London, New Zealand, and Japan. We’ve crafted patented software, and fought the law to allow all Australian software businesses to protect their patents (and we won!). In doing this we've disrupted the marketing technology industry and Australian patents for software as a whole. In 2019 we're investing $23m in new R&D which includes hiring 70 new engineers. Do you want to be our next generation Rokt'star?
