Python Developer

For $11,666 — Ends 26 Feb 2018 (in 3 months)

Please send your resume and cover letter along with your compensation requirements. This is a local, contract position, no relocation will be provided, and we do not accept remote work.
A Software Engineering Contractor in the Santa Monica, CA division of a growing Engineering Team: a high-performance culture marked by creativeness and passion. We focus on the development of key technologies that advance our mission of bringing highly experiential digital goods to everyone, everywhere.
As a Server Backend team member, you'll have a direct impact on the innovation of cutting edge technologies, including blockchain assets. As a team, we are ambitious, engaged and excited about disrupting the digital goods industry.
Here are the kinds of skills we're looking for:
• Fast learner. We're looking for team members who thrive on applying their knowledge, learning new technologies and who don't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the rapid pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment.
• Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive to prove that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
• Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of core engineering fields, you understand how all the pieces fit together into integrated systems, and how they impact performance.
• Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code or design "released" until you're confident it's correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
• A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team -- that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
Qualities we're looking for:
• You enjoy building engaging apps that have the potential to change the industry
• You care about creating apps that are simple to use, yet highly functional
• You're a quality fanatic. You like to go fast, but you also recognize the importance of testing and quality assurance.
Skills we're looking for:
• At least three years programming experience in Python.
• A firm grasp of data structure and algorithm fundamentals and how to apply them in real-world applications.
• Previous experience developing backends for mobile Apps.
• Experience or interest in full-stack development is not required, but is a plus.
• Ability to identify testing gaps and improve tests, test strategies, and code coverage
• Prior experience working in Linux environments
• MS in computer science preferred but not required.
Depending on skills, we may consider a contract-to-hire arrangement.
