Job: Python/Django Developer in NYC (Backstage)

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 19:19:06 GMT

Backstage is hiring a full-time mid-level to senior Python developer, preferably with Django experience. We're interviewing both back end-oriented and full-stack candidates. Typical projects might include upgrading our Elasticsearch integration code by 3 major versions; updating a collection of API endpoints to work with our new iOS client; or collaborating with our UX designer and front-end specialist to design and build out a new feature from scratch. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter and top-notch communicator and collaborator who takes pride in the quality of their output, empathizes with both colleagues and users, and knows how to identify which 20% of the work will accrue 80% of the benefits. You should have at least 5 years of professional experience in software development, with at least 3 years working primarily with Python and one year of experience with Django. Working knowledge of Javascript (especially with React) or Elasticsearch is a plus. We're a small, collaborative, supportive engineering team operating in a low-overhead, agile manner. We val ue informality, work/life balance, and diversity of opinion. We like to think of Backstage as a "startup run by adults" - we're a stable, growing company with 50 years of history and a strong brand in the casting industry to back up an agile and future-oriented mindset.
