Django Developer


Mountain View, CA

We're looking for developers to join us in our client's office in Mountain View, developing web tools and apps for huge audiences. We are a part of the AKQA network and our clients include Google, YouTube, Skype and PayPal.

This role will see you working as part of a friendly, expert team. The workload will sometimes be hectic, but the atmosphere is cheerful and proactive. We want to put you in a position to write and deploy the best code that you can.

There are plenty of technical acronyms in here, but fundamentally we're looking for intelligent people who have an eagerness to learn new things, and the communication skills to be able to explain them to humans such as project managers and our clients.

As well as the technical knowledge, we need people that get it - people who can figure things out by themselves but know when to yell for help. Cutting down and simplifying complex problems with interfaces which make them appear straightforward.

We like to see proven abilities in...

  • Python & Django
  • Using Git (or any DVCS) to manage parallel development on a large codebase
  • Use of PaaS, such as Google App Engine, Heroku, Elastic Beanstalk, or Windows Azure
  • HTML, CSS & JavaScript

We also like talking to people who enjoy...

  • POSH (Plain Old Semantic HTML)
  • Development & consumption of HTTP APIs
  • Internationalisation
  • JavaScript frameworks & libraries such as AngularJS, Backbone.js or React
  • Google Apps & APIs
  • Scaling applications across distributed machines
  • noSQL & SQL databases

In return you'll get...

  • Free lunch, drinks and snacks
  • A fun and supportive, developer-focussed working environment

Applying

Feel free to apply with a cover letter and CV, but what we would really like to see is some code you've written. A GitHub or Bitbucket URL is ideal. Please let us know whether a freelance or fulltime position is preferable, too.

If we like what we see we'll get back to you quickly to arrange to have a cup of tea and a chat.

Agencies

Please don't call. If (one day) we need you, we'll be in touch.

We will not engage with cold-calling or emailing agencies in any way.
