Django Developer

OXD is seeking a full stack Django developer to help our professional services team on a part-time basis. OXD was founded by a software developer—and 20+ years later engineering continues to be at the core of our business. We provide technology consulting on large-scale web applications, including key public projects and major global brands.

Responsibilities

As a key member of the project team you will:
  • Work with a small and focused team to design and develop new features and releases.
  • Collaborate with other team members to flesh out technical requirements.
  • Work across the full stack of application layers. You are just as comfortable working with HTML, CSS and Javascript as you are with Python.
  • Work in an Agile environment.

How you like to work

  • You’re in your element when working in an integrated team that is small, flexible, and Agile.
  • You are eager to be heard and contribute to the team without an ego.
  • You care about productivity and strive to help teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently.
  • You know that communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills are simply a part of the development process.
  • You like to solve complex problems and have an open mind to considering different approaches.
  • You love learning new technologies and keep on top of emerging trends.
  • You believe in the importance of having a life outside of work.

Is this the right fit for you?

A degree helps but what you’ve been doing for the past few years is important to us too. Do you have a passion for learning? Are you user-centric? Do you want to build applications that run fast, look good, and solve real business problems?

Minimum Requirements

  • 5+ years of web development experience in Python using a framework such as Django (or equivalent).
  • Proficiency in a Posix environment like Linux and OS X.
  • Solid understanding of Git (you know the difference between rebasing and merging).
  • Understanding of the benefits of testing, TDD, and continuous integration.  
  • Understanding of database principles and the strengths and weaknesses of an ORM.
  • Understanding of the full stack of web applications and how to optimize each layer of the stack.
  • A high-level understanding of user experience and user interface design.
  • Experience working with visual and user experience designers.

Things that will give you an edge

  • Experience with Django.
  • Experience developing single page applications.
  • Experience with front-end JS frameworks such as React, Vue, and Angular.
  • Experience with HTML and CSS.
  • Experience with DevOps tools like Ansible and Docker.
  • Experience working in a professional services environment.
