Backend Developer (Django) — Remote

👋🏼 OkayRelax is all about making lives easier. Before you proceed further, we highly recommend exploring our company and the culture we are establishing here.

We are looking for a Backend Developer (Django) in the UTC+03:00 to UTC+08:00 time-zone. Please do not apply outside these time-zones, as we rarely make exceptions. Ideal experience is between 1 and 4 years.

Background

  • We are building a bespoke project to solve problems faced by all stakeholders in the business.
  • The project is about 2 months into its lifecycle. We have come far already, but need your help to see it through to the finish line.
  • It’s a standard Django application.
    • Django Rest Framework, if included, will only be in small portions.
  • 40 to 48 hours per week.
  • This is a full-time opportunity.
  • Your work will be tracked in a project management software. We do expect daily reports via comments on assigned tickets/tasks.

Technical Requirements

At least one open source/GitHub project with Django that we can actually test with demo login credentials and a useful README file will be required.

Alternatively, you must be willing to write a PR given a feature request on an existing project.

  • Python and Django experience is a must.
  • You must be well-versed with one of Postgres and Django’s ORM.
  • Experience with Django also entails experience with DTL.
  • Experience with source code management: git and GitHub.
  • Native/bilingual proficiency in English required. You will be writing detailed comments to accompany your code. 🙂
    • An exception can be made for you if you are exceptionally wonderful at what you do.
  • You know how to use PyTest to write unit tests.

Bonus Points

  • Any JavaScript and React experience.
  • You have an online presence in terms of a personal website or portfolio, and/or a development-related Twitter/Mastodon/DEV.to/Medium/etc. account.
  • Privacy, and as a consequence, security is at the heart of your work. We value our customer’s data immensely!
