About Vantage

Come join an emerging tech company just as we hit our inflection point. Vantage plays in a $250BN addressable market in North America that is seeing significant disruption. Retailers are transforming their digital marketing practices to drive customer acquisition and are looking for new profit centers in retail media networks.

Vantage is uniquely positioned in this space, having established a technology platform that is custom-built for retail media. We offer the only turnkey integrated retail media network. We significantly outperform online media benchmarks by leveraging automation, machine learning, and AI. Ours is the market-leading platform and we have real traction with some of the biggest names in retail.

We are excited to expand the team and take the company to the next level. You would have the opportunity to get in early and obviously, that comes with great possible financial upside, but it also comes with an opportunity to shape the culture of the team. So, we’re picky about the people we invite to join the journey. We’re looking for true team players, not lone wolves, or temporarily hired guns. We are professionals with a passion for doing great work and driving real success for Vantage and our clients.

Headquartered in Toronto but currently working fully remotely, the Vantage team is diverse, creative, and fun. Our belief is that our firm commitment to diversity & inclusion enables Vantage to be better. We also believe that people are happiest and can accomplish the most amazing things when they have the freedom and flexibility to customize their work and life environments and can take on huge, stimulating challenges with fantastic colleagues.

Our tech stack includes Python, Django, React, AngularJS, Snowflake, MySQL, Postgres, Snowplow, Stitch Data, RabbitMQ, Redis, CircleCI, and PagerDuty; hosted mainly on Azure, with limited usage of GCP and AWS.

What We Offer

  • Competitive compensation
  • Employee share ownership – because Vantage wants you to truly share the success
  • Flexible work/life, remote-first philosophy
  • Great health benefits from Day 1
  • Career development / continuing education allowance – we all want to stay sharp
  • Mac laptop & other Apple equipment (we’ll give you a budget to build your perfect work-from-home environment because ergonomics matter)
  • Team building activities to keep things fun: wonderland days, cottage trips (COVID permitting), virtual games & escape rooms, team lunches, and weekly nacho breaks on Fridays
