Great Django Gig in San Francisco
Added on May 15, 2012 and expired on June 14, 2012
We're a web and mobile app consulting firm in San Francisco with a team of 12 people who are passionate about developing and delivering great solutions for our clients. We're lucky enough to be working with some of the most successful companies in Silicon Valley, developing truly leading-edge web and mobile applications for them. You can see more about us at http://www.tivix.com/
We're looking to hire a Full-Time Contract Django/Python engineer (1-3 years experience) based out of San Francisco. We'll try to list here what we offer, and what we're looking for!
Here is a list of important things we're looking for in our ideal colleague:
You love Django, and understand why we are passionate about it.
You know what a middleware and context processor is (better still you've written a bunch on your own)!
You are great at jQuery (galleria plugin, highcharts, jquery UI etc. too)
Virtualenv/pip/fabric are your swiss army knives!
You can get an Ubuntu instance up and ready to deploy a Django app in under 30 minutes!
You know about RabbitMQ / celery
You have written your own custom template tags / filters
You hate SVN… . . Better yet you've been github for more than a year and have open-sourced some code too!
And now about us:
We're a boutique technology / design consulting company and specialize/focus in Django development. We've been around since 2008.
We believe in open-source and contribute back extensively.
We write DRY, clean code.
We work on several interesting projects at a time, giving you the choice to decide what you'd like to work on! A fun work environment.
We've got an amazing team of really smart people who enjoy working with each other.
We tend to generally have a “work hard, play hard” philosophy. Some days we're incredibly focused on working long hours to meet a crucial milestone, other days we all go out for a long lunch and relax.
We have our own fleet of helicopters (Ok, so they are little toy helicopters, but they're still fun).
Our offices are nice and relaxed, and our kitchen is always stocked with coffee and beer.
Please read all of the above, and make sure you truly feel you are a good fit for this position. If you do, then please send us an email with your resume attached, and in the body of the email please write us a paragraph telling us (1) your Github or Bitbucket profile link; (2) Any sample applications you've built; and (3) Three reasons you like Python and/or Django! Finally, to show us that you have actually read this whole post, meet the requirements, and are good at attention to detail, please put “Django Bright” in the subject line when you respond. Please read these requests carefully, because they are important to us.
Thanks very much!
