About Us

We’re Signkick, a pioneering Adtech company on a mission to revolutionise an industry. Our flagship product, Signkick Trading Bridge, is designed to connect Out-of-Home (that’s billboards, bus stops and other advertising outside of our homes) media owners with buyers and brands looking to advertise. But our mission doesn’t stop there. We’re automating this connection to help them deliver more dynamic, creative and efficient advertising than ever before. Innovative stuff for an industry still handling bookings via spreadsheets and phone calls.

For our R&D team based in Amsterdam, that means building and connecting APIs, setting standards, dealing with high-throughput and large datasets – all with smart processing. We then top it off with seriously slick UI which allows clients to manage campaigns, configure their connections and analyse trading.

The next part of our tech offering is Console, an e-commerce solution that lets media owners sell direct to advertisers.

By joining our tight-knit team you’ll be integral to developing and delivering this product as it continues to evolve. We move fast for our clients through smart use of the latest technologies, We care about quality and doing things right from the beginning.

If you want to work with complex distributed systems at the forefront of technological development alongside an internationally diverse team with a passion for software development submit your interest and let’s talk.

Things we value

Passion, freedom and responsibility. Loyalty, trust and transparency. But above all, we want good people who dream big!

Working directly with the CTO/co-founder and the product owner you’ll build new features that empower our customers, improve the scalability and reliability of our products. You’ll build integrations with our customer and supplier systems as well as the integrations with media players that power digital billboards. You’ll see your work in action in the real world. We’re growing fast too, so you’ll also help with setting standards and scaling our development process across the board.
