There’s something special about being an engineer at TUNE. It’s more than just working in a fast-paced environment with the newest technologies or having your headquarters in the heart of Seattle’s booming tech-industry.

Being an engineer at TUNE means you have the autonomy to choose the technologies that are best equipped for solving problems, and immediately make impactful decisions. An engineer at TUNE has the opportunity to immerse yourself in an environment built around team camaraderie, with various venues for all personalities. It also means having a leadership team that believes in you and supports a culture where engineers can know and relate to just about everyone on the engineering side.

These immediate team impacts can be seen throughout the engineering organization. Heather Wade is the Dev Manager on the TUNE Marketing Console Data Infrastructure team, and her team was given the opportunity to replace a system that was approaching the end of its life due to a massive increase in the scale of data we process at TUNE. Her team was tasked with applying their full focus to its replacement, and designing the new system in a way that would unlock new features in TUNE’s next generation of products. They were given the autonomy to research new technologies and prototypes to solve these challenges, and are now completing the engineering work necessary to produce the new system. After working closely with product managers and other engineering teams, they were able to tap into a clear vision for the future of the product. Wade says, “It is very fulfilling to spend your day using cutting edge technologies to solve real problems for our customers.”

Hear more about what it is like to be an engineer at TUNE with our latest video, talking about the importance of camaraderie. Watch the video for reflections on our annual engineering retreat, Geeks in the Woods. The retreat inspired them to reflect on TUNE’s unique culture and share how it fits all personalities and provides engineers the environment to succeed.

From the top down, our engineering leadership understands how important it is to have venues and strong relationships as the company continues to grow. As John Bender, Director of Engineering says, “This environment is real, it’s not just words, it’s not just pictures, it’s not just videos. This is our lives and it matters to us. We want to spend our time with people we know, care about, and root for.”
