About Kanban

Kanban is on a mission to optimize and automate the marketing technology suite; an often disparate group of systems, technologies, and platforms (ex. digital asset libraries, content management systems, multi-variant testing tools, responsive interfaces and rich applications) used to fulfill the vision of delivering the right content to the right user at the right time.

Content has emerged as the quintessential currency used by marketers to engage audiences. As a result, marketers around the world are racing to automate the content lifecycle – the processes, systems and controls used to create content, manage it, publish it, measure it, and monetize it.

As a Kanban engineer, you’ll apply a content-centric lens to design and implement these systems and technologies, allowing our clients – the marketing technologists – to deliver ground-breaking, real-time, content-rich, customer experiences, 24×7.

We offer an exciting and creative working environment where employees feel challenged and their contributions are recognized. We are located in New York City; you must work from our offices. Opportunities for career and personal development are excellent.
