Django Contractor

👋🏼 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 back-end web developer with primary experience in Django.


  • We are building a bespoke project to solve problems faced by all stakeholders in the business (explore what we do).
  • This is a completely remote position.
  • The project is about 70% completed. We have come far already, but need your help to see it through to the finish line.
  • It is a standard Django application employing server-rendered pages. Javascript is only used as a progressive enhancement tool.
  • 20 hours/week for a duration of 3 months — this is a part-time opportunity that may transition into a full-time (40 hour/week) gig based on your performance.
  • Ideal years of experience is between 1 and 4 years.
    • We are not necessarily concerned with years of experience itself — what you bring to the table is far more important to us. Of course, as long as you meet the rest of the criteria!

Technical Requirements.

You may be required to write a PR given a feature request on an existing sample project.

We expect the following:

  • Comfortable with Python and at least intermediate with Django.
    • An intermediate Django developer is someone who is comfortable almost exclusively relying on the official Django documentation for coming up with solutions to problems.
  • You must be well-versed with 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 docstrings and inline comments to accompany your code.

Bonus Points.

  • Experience with Celery and RabbitMQ for async background tasks.
  • You know how to use Django’s testing utilities to write unit and integration tests.
  • Experience with Javascript.
  • You have an online presence in terms of a personal website, personal portfolio, and/or a development-related Twitter/Mastodon/ account.
  • Privacy, and as a consequence, security is at the heart of your work. We value our customer’s data immensely!


Specifically, some of the areas you might touch upon include:

  • Moderation features.
  • Payment processor integration.
  • Cleanup of some specific views and forms.
  • Bug fixes as and when discovered.
  • New feature requests as they come up from clients as well as staff.
