Rock Kitchen Harris Leicester, United Kingdom

Python/Django full stack developer

Come and join a bunch of friendly clever folk that have been building high profile Django apps and websites for almost 10 years.


# WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We're looking for somebody (preferably onsite but possibly remote) that can jump into existing projects to help maintain and improve them but somebody that can also envision brand new projects from scratch.

We use agile to stay sane and deliver the best solutions for our clients. We use whatever tools and techniques get the job done in a way we can be proud of.

We have lots of fun but we don’t faff about.

The right person will tick these boxes and then some:

  • You’re experienced using Python and Django
    (we don’t measure experience in years - code quality and approach count for everything)
  • You’re a bit good with servers
    (you know your chmod from your rm, and you know how to pronounce PostgreSQL)
  • You understand that clever doesn't mean complex
    (and that lazy can be a good thing, but sloppy never is)
  • You can communicate clearly to non-techies
    (agile means working as part of a diverse team that are relying on you to explain things in plain English)
  • You can’t keep still
    
(you know the code we write today will probably suck in 12 months, and that’s ok so long as we learn from it)
  • You’ve got good taste
    (beauty comes in many forms and you need to be able to spot and embrace it - from a stunning app design to a clean and efficient function)


# WHAT'S ON OFFER?


  • Interesting and varied projects - large and small, scary and non-scary, to keep your brain and fingers active
  • Freedom and trust - use whatever software, tools, books, training, music, coffee, beer, wine and fresh air you need to get the job done
  • A nice computer - a shiny new Apple computer you can set up however you like (we draw the line at installing Windows though)
  • A great space - you’ll get a big desk in an airy office and a Lamp Budget to make it your own
  • Some cool new friends - our diverse team of 30 are regularly socialising - impromptu curry nights, pub lunches, go-karting, foosball, museum visits, letterpress, desk-delivered beer and more
  • Office bees - 30 people inside the office making money, 30,000 on the roof making honey
  • Firewatch - endless conversation about how great a game Firewatch is
  • A generous helping of cash - ah yes, some money too!


# HOW TO APPLY


Surprise us. Let me know via email on the address below why you're the right person for the job in whichever way you think is most appropriate (it’s part of the test).

Be sure to cover some basics like your name, email and relevant experience and let me know as soon as you can - I’m keen to hear from great people.

Thanks!

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.
