Tumblr launched in 2007 with the belief that people need a place to say what they want, be who they want, and connect over what they love. We continue to build out Tumblr as a platform for free expression, individuality, and human connection. That’s why we need smart, humble, funny people to keep Tumblr growing. We’re big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter. Come work with us.

People come to Tumblr to expand their perspectives. They join a community and a cultural dialogue that exposes them up to new ideas, new passions, and new forms of self-expression. People seem to really like this thing we’ve built, and we need smart, humble, funny people to keep it running and growing. Headquartered in NYC, we’re big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter.

What You’ll Do:
Real work! That’s right, you will be putting code into production. You will be integrated into a small engineering team working on a real-world project.

You will be building services to help our website scale, analyzing big data, or adding/enhancing site features used by millions users.

You’ll have to research, prototype, write and test your code to production standards.

Read, generalize and simplify technical solutions to solve multiple needs.

Benchmark possible solutions and implement improvements to expand capacity.

Teams You Might Join:
Product Engineering: Build Tumblr, improve Tumblr, and help satiate the needs and wants of the Tumblr community. Someone who loves JavaScript and React would be super.

Mobile Engineering: Come work on the iOS and Android apps that put Tumblr in millions of users' pockets. Familiarity with Swift, Kotlin, and ReactiveX would be swell.

Research Engineering: Research, expand and, refine Tumblr’s infrastructure and algorithms for everything from analytics to personalization to monetization.

Platform Engineering: Write highly optimized distributed services that manage data and requests in real time, helping our site scale to billions of posts.

Site Reliability Engineering: Learn about how we build, buy, provision, containerize, and scale our hardware for a massive global audience.

What We’re Looking For:
An eagerness to learn at Tumblr next summer, and hopefully to teach us a thing or two as well!

School and/or personal projects that you'd be excited to show us.

A passion for open source technology and programming.

And desire to tap our immense streams of data to divine insights and build a great product.

Proficiency reading and writing code, figuring out algorithms, and collaboratively developing software.

From art to music to dank memes to social justice, we’re proud to serve all the subcultures that call Tumblr home, and even more proud of the impact they have on the world. No matter what team you work on here, you’ll be working to give our users a voice, and to make that voice heard far and wide.

If you're an aspiring software engineer who is currently pursuing a BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or related major, come work with us!
