Junior Django Full Stack Developer

I am the CTO at Contracts Counsel, and we develop an online marketplace to connect lawyers with clients in the US marketplace, and to support them working together on projects. We have a number of exciting opportunities, and therefore need to expand the development team. We are financially secure and profitable, hitting profitability at the end of 2021. We have also secured funding in the short term to further accelerate our growth.

I am looking for our second developer, reporting directly to me. We are using Python, Django and MySQL on the back-end, Javascript and jQuery on the front-end, all deployed on AWS. As the second developer in a start-up, you will be involved with all aspects of the development process: specification, development, testing, release, support.

Ideally, the developer would work core-hours of 10-4.30 (UK time), with a brief stand-up at 10 each day. I have grown development teams successfully in previous start-ups, but I am still open to ideas for improvements.

Interview process consists of: short coding test (should take no more than 1 hour); 30-minute remote interview; 60-minute remote interview. I have hired successfully from Hacker News before.

We have ambitious plans to grow quickly in an environment where data is sensitive, so any experience of scaling, security and robustness would be helpful. Any experience of start-ups, legal and/or online marketplaces would also be useful, but is not required.

In a start-up environment, key values are:

  • flexibility (plans change)
  • execution (finishing things)
  • quality (we have 99%+ test coverage)
  • motivation (remote mindset)
  • communication (knowing when to ask for help, when to look for solutions yourself)

While this is a full-stack position, so some HTML / CSS / Javascript is needed, we try to do as much in the Python as possible.
