Brightest is an ethical technology company that helps individual people discover ways to do good and track their impact, while providing software solutions to charities, non-profits, organizers, and other impact organizations to grow and accelerate their success.

We're looking for an engineer with strong Django/Python expertise to be one of the lead, early architects and developers of our product.

The right candidate will (a) care about social good (and technology solutions that scale social good), (b) be able to write and develop clean, scalable, bug-free, documented code, and (c) be able to work effectively in small teams or as a relatively independent self-starter. We are a small team (6 engineers) and everyone needs to be an entrepreneurial owner and self-starter around their work.

Prior experience and expertise in any of the following areas is particularly relevant:

- Collaboration, communication, and message applications
- Django REST, API, micro-service, and/or integration development (AWS)
- Analytics and data measurement software products

Generally we are looking for someone awesome with the following attributes:

- BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding (e.g., physics or statistics), or equivalent technical experience
- 3+ years of professional software development experience
- Independent, self-starter who wants a opportunity to shape and have a meaningful impact at an early-stage startup
- A desire to take Brightest and our mission as far as it can go.

Benefits and perks:

- To be perfectly candid, if you're only in this for the pay you'll be compensated better at Google, Microsoft, etc. and this likely isn't for you. But, if you want to iterate, ship code fast, shape a company, and make the world a better place please keep reading - you've come to the right place.
- Meaningful equity in a growing, early-stage company and a seat at the table for how we hire, grow, develop culture and processes, make devops and infrastructure decisions, and pretty much everything else.
- Generous vacation policy, flexible working arrangements as long as you're getting your work done, and time off if you want to volunteer or go do something good.

If this sounds cool, we'd love to learn more about you and find out if we can work together.
