Description

This is a full time, purely remote position.


My client is a fast-growing marketing, loyalty, and payments platform that helps small business owners understand and reach out to their customers and increase revenues by making informed decisions. Customers can discover businesses using our mobile apps, then at order time can check-in and pay for their orders using our mobile and tablet applications. The resulting data allows merchants to send targeted marketing campaigns, track their online reputation, and monitor the growth effect loyal customers can have on revenues, through our flagship web application.

As part of the business operations team, you would be working on various types of systems - from building APIs for exchanging data with external partners, to building web applications to manage business processes, to building out the infrastructure that is necessary to run those systems in a scalable and reliable way. We are looking for someone with at least 5 years of experience building technology solutions that have been used to solve real-world problems.

If this describes you…

● You've seen several projects through to completion in similar roles, and either has worked or are comfortable working with, teams of various sizes.

● Have an eye for idiomatic, readable, and performant Python 2/3 code, and experience with linters/debuggers/profilers/etc. which help reach these goals.

● You've worked with frontend development to some extent. JavaScript land moves fast, so we'll understand if your background doesn't perfectly align with our stack (React+Redux+Babel+Webpack, Backbone.js transitioning to Vue), but we're definitely looking for someone who's used a modern framework of some sort, and isn't strictly a jQuery wizard.

● You've worked with some kind of MVC framework.

● Have an eye for idiomatic, readable, and performant Python code, and experience with linters/debuggers/profilers/etc. which help reach these goals

● Comfortable with at least intermediate-level queries in MongoDB and/or PostgreSQL.

● Experienced with Git and comfortable using a branch+tag workflow model that leans heavily on GitHub's Pull Request utilities

● Bonus: Have experience with Django, Flask, or AioHTTP.

● Bonus: Have experience with JavaScript at or after the ES6 turning point. Trust us, it's a whole new world when you're able to use import and async/await. We're of course open to teaching these new features as needed.

● Bonus: Have experience with both Python 2 and Python 3, and can explain some of the footguns involved in moving between these versions, and in writing cross-compatible code

● Bonus: DevOps experience of any form. We're Docker people locally and AWS/Kubernetes people in the cloud.

● Bonus: You're opinionated about tooling, process, code/test styles, etc., but not too snobby about it. Our process is flexible and ever-changing, and you'd be welcome to leave your mark on it!

… then here's a bit about what we have to offer!


● Salary Range: $80k+ annually. This is based on experience and what you bring to the table

● Health, Dental, and Vision insurance

● Company-provided MacBook Pro (or similarly-spec'd device if you're more of a Linux type).

● A supportive environment, where you will work closely with a skilled team of software and QA engineers, product managers, and graphic designers

● At the time of this writing, we score a 10 on the Joel Test and are working to raise that to at least an 11 in the near future

● Transfers of existing H1B visas will be considered

My client will consider all applicants for employment without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender/gender identity, religion, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other basis as prohibited by federal, state or local law. If you're allowed to work in the US, you are welcome here.
