We’re currently looking for a talented Lead Full-Stack Python Developer (Team Leader) to write clean and maintainable Python3 code, mainly using the battle-tested Django framework to create scalable, robust, queryable REST APIs.
We architect performant database tables and queries in PostgreSQL, query our multi-terabyte Elasticsearch cluster, and connect to microservices as well as third-party APIs to compose the data returned by our endpoints.
We use Redis to cache expensive calls where necessary. We use Docker and AWS to support infrastructure. The growing development team follows an Agile workflow. If you’re a strong technology generalist, who loves learning new things and isn’t afraid to dive in and figure things out, we’re looking for you.
