Mission-driven and venture-backed tech start-up is hiring an experienced hybrid developer to work on our back-end application stack (Python / Django), who is also a strong infrastructure developer.

Our modern tech stack consists of a Python 3 / Django backend using a PostgreSQL database and it is paired with a JavaScript single page application built on React and Redux. We use Docker and AWS to deploy our application.

You are an experienced Senior Full Stack Python Engineer who is a strong developer that can understand and improve existing code, recommend new approaches and implement new, scalable solutions. You will also have experience in web application DevOps and understand how to manage AWS web app infrastructures (servers, databases, load balancers), implement a scalable deployment pipelines, and ensure that we have a fault tolerant recovery process.

This is a rare opportunity to join a start-up with a powerful product line-up for marketing, sales, and service teams built in the past 5 years. You'll be working directly with our CEO, CTO, and VP of Engineering. The initial product is already live with aggressive growth and market expansion plans.

You need to be brilliant, organized, hard-working, and have relevant experience. You need to be excited about creating beautiful, intuitive products and experiences that’ll make life easier and enable our customers to be more successful. You want to be the best at what you do, and you're willing to completely embrace this passion.

This job is filled with opportunity and is going to meet all of your needs. As we grow, you’ll be able to choose if you want to work as an individual contributor or lead a team. You know that small teams of committed, brilliant individuals create all great innovations – and that it's way more fun working with fellow brilliant game-changers. You're sick of the red tape, bureaucracy, and entitlement that gets in the way of progress in large, bloated organizations.

We'll be counting on you - that responsibility may scare you a bit – but it also excites you. This is the opportunity you've been waiting for to do something that makes a real difference.
