Senior Python Developer

Senior Python Developer

We have an immediate opening for a Senior Backend Software Developer.  The ideal candidate will have several years of experience of coding Python, at least 5 years of experience with complex SQL database schema design, be comfortable in Linux-based environments, be an independent but communicative team player, thrive in researching creative ways to solve unusual technical challenges, and have the ability to suggest and carry out practical actions to deal with issues.

Technical Skills

  • 5+ years with Python development skills
  • Rich history with PostgreSQL (or other RDBMS) including user-defined functions, performance tuning, and the design of complex schemas for large databases
  • Interest in working with large datasets in PostgreSQL
  • Solid understanding of networking technologies
  • Comfort and interest in working in a Linux-based development environment
  • Familiarity with traditional Windows platforms, networks and enterprise technologies
  • Experience  with AWS, Azure, and/or other cloud environments

Personal Skills

  • Clear and collaborative communication.  It’s a weird time.  Many of us are seasoned remote workers, but “many” isn’t “everyone.”  Open, frequent, effective and professional communication is as important as your technical skills
  • Handle multiple demands in an fast paced environment and be able to track their own work and not lose track of important details or tasks
  • Ability to solve problems creatively and effectively

 

Responsibilities for the Senior Backend Developer include but are not limited to:

  • Serve both our external customers and internal teams by researching, designing, building and maintaining APIs and systems
  • Use the right tool for the right job.  Sometimes it’s not Python and PostgreSQL; we have shell scripts (and even a little PowerShell) in our codebase for a reason
  • Work in cross-functional teams to pilot new features from ideation to through to general availability
