YOU MAY FIT THIS ROLE IF YOU:

- Write high quality, server-side code
- Are deeply knowledgeable and experienced in Python (extensive experience in similar languages will be considered)
- Often find yourself staring at a blank wall and attempting to visualize how an extremely complex system operates under high load
- Thoughtfully design forward-thinking, scalable, and performant data architectures
- Have used both SQL and NoSQL databases, and understand the benefits and shortcomings of each
- Take production systems seriously, and expect others to do the same
- Know how to independently debug a complicated problem, and do so regularly
- Regularly learn new things, and enjoy both teaching others and being taught
- Understand the importance of testing, and how to write good tests
- Value tight teamwork to achieve results that surpass a single individual’s contributions
- Understand that every product/project requires an array of fields and talents, and respectful communication is a critical component in success
