Lulu Press Inc. Raleigh, North Carolina

Experienced Django Developer

Lulu.com is looking for an Experienced Django Developer to build the next generation of publishing platforms.

Since 2002, Lulu Press has enabled authors in more than 225 countries and territories to self-publish over two million publications. 

With Glass Tree Academic Publishing we bring our print-on-demand publishing expertise to academic communities around the world. At Glass Tree, authors are in control. They own the rights to their published work, set their own retail prices and keep 70 percent of all profits earned from the sale of their work.

Publishing and academic publishing in particular are dominated by a small group of established companies. These companies stifle innovation and exploit authors and readers alike. Our goal is to create an alternative to traditional publishing that offers content creators and consumers a better deal.

Publishing is ripe for disruptive ideas but we are certainly not the only team working on innovate solutions. That's why we are looking globally to find exceptionally talented developers like you.

You are perfect for this role if you have proven abilities in:

  • Python and (of course) Django
  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Development & consumption of REST-APIs
  • Scaling applications

Bonus skills and experience:

  • Test-driven Development
  • CI, automation tools, DevOps
  • JavaScript frameworks & libraries, especially AngularJS
  • Internationalisation
  • Microservice Architecture
  • Experience in the publishing industry
  • A blog, Github or Stack Overflow profile showcasing what you’re all about

In the next couple of months you will probably work on the following projects:

  • an open platform for authors, publishers and knowledge entrepreneurs to create, produce and disseminate their works
  • tools for assembling content from hybrid sources 
  • tools for automatic transformation of content into various analog and digital formats
  • - solutions that empower creators through machine learning, data mining and related technologies
  • a new kind of marketplace for content creators and consumers

Lulu empowers people of all ages to explore and express their interests, passions and expertise through books, photography and art. Lulu's home base is in Raleigh, NC but you will work with an international team located around the world.

Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our customers as we’d want to be treated, we treat each other like family, and we treat ourselves to a good day’s work and a good night’s sleep.

Our goals have always been the same: Have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning.

Why you will make us awesome:

Your skills are more important than your location
Results are more important than perfection
Maintainable software is more important than using "hip" technologies
Clear code is more important than a rock star attitude
Ability to learn is more important than years of experience
...but years of experience aren't bad either ;-)


If you are interested, we would like to hear from you.

Boston, Massachusetts

Spin up a new Django site and incorporate an existing HTML template...

I have an HTML template and would like it carved up to be implemented into a brand new Django site (that you'll create).  


The Django site should implement a landing page off the root URL route, an Admin off /admin and the HTML template off /app.  In addition I'd also like to incorporate custom user Profiles that I can extend with additional fields later on.


The HTML Template that you'll incorporate off of the /app route, will be fairly bare bones consisting of Header/Footer, Login styling, Profile Management, etc.

incling ltd London, United Kingdom

Junior Full Stack Web Developer (Django / Python) - Salary dependant on experience

incling is a boutique market research consultancy that specialises in building online research communities for top brands. We’re expanding rapidly and looking to add a junior developer that lives, breathes and plays with new technologies to be part of an exciting web application development team.

We need a lateral thinker and keen all rounder who is happy to work on their own and manage his or her own time. In this role you will have the freedom to work from wherever you feel inspired and flex outside of the standard 8 – 5 working hours – which also means that you need to be driven enough to meet deadlines outside of a formal office space and structure.

Even though we're geographically dispersed we are a tight knit team who keep in touch and collaborate on a daily basis (using Skype, join.me, Asana and Google drive). We like to work hard, but also believe in maintaining a healthy work/life balance so everyone at incling is welcome to fit their working day flexibly between our core hours (7am to 9pm).

You will be working directly with one of the founders and who is currently based in London. 

Candidates need to have native or bilingual proficiency in English as open and clear communication is a large part of incling’s ethos. Timezone differences can be no more than GMT+2.

Skills and experience

You will need to know your way around quite a wide range of web technologies. You will most likely work with the list below and will be expected to have at least 1 years experience (we will consider pet project for experience) with most of them.

  • Jquery
  • Javascript
  • Django
  • Python
  • Linux web hosting environment
  • Apache
  • Github
  • Ajax
  • MySQL
  • HTML 5
  • CSS 3

If you think this role might be for you please complete the attached Django exercise and send it to us with your CV and a cover letter. To submit your Django task please upload it to Github and provide us with a link to access it in your cover letter.

 

Django Task

Django plays a big role in abstracting away the need to deal with database management.  However, this means as developers we have to make good choices about what structures and data our models contain and how they are related to enable the ORM to work most efficiently.

The task is to therefore create a three model Django project that contains school objects, classroom objects, and student objects.  A student can belong only to one classroom and a classroom only relates to a single school.

We do not need to know subjects that pupils might be taking, or any results, grades, or exams they might be associated with, so these should not be included within the above models.

You can build the project using just Django with the above models CRUD being managed by the Django Admin. No frontend work is required on this task.
