Job Title

Senior Software Engineer

Job Description

Lulu.com is looking for an Experienced Software Engineer (Django Developer) to build the next generation of publishing platforms in our head office in Morrisville, NC.

Since 2002, Lulu Press has enabled authors in more than 225 countries and territories to self-publish over one million publications. Publishing and academic publishing in particular are dominated by a small group of established companies. These companies stifle innovation and exploit authors and readers alike. Our goal is to create an alternative to traditional publishing that offers content creators and consumers a better deal.

Lulu pioneered the sharing economy by providing free publishing tools so that everyone, everywhere, can share their knowledge and tell their story. Using cutting edge technology, we produce high-quality eBooks and print-on-demand products via sustainable sourcing and environmentally conscious manufacturing practices. Our employees are committed to making our communities and the world a better place by providing unrivaled customer service to one author, one idea, one book at a time. It's part of our story. What's yours?

Publishing is ripe for disruptive ideas but we are certainly not the only team working on innovate solutions. That's why we are looking globally to find exceptionally talented developers like you.

Restrictions

  • No telecommuting
  • No Agencies Please

Requirements

You are perfect for this role if you have proven abilities in:

  • 5+ years working in Python and (of course) Django
  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Development & consumption of REST-APIs
  • Scaling applications

Bonus skills and experience:

  • Test-driven Development
  • CI, automation tools, DevOps
  • JavaScript frameworks & libraries, especially AngularJS
  • Internationalization
  • Micro-Service Architecture
  • Experience in the publishing industry
  • A blog, Github or Stack Overflow profile showcasing what you’re all about

Qualifications:

In the next couple of months you will probably work on the following projects:

  • an open platform for authors, publishers and knowledge entrepreneurs to create, produce and disseminate their works
  • tools for assembling content from hybrid sources
  • tools for automatic transformation of content into various analog and digital formats
  • solutions that empower creators through machine learning, data mining and related technologies
  • a new kind of marketplace for content creators and consumers

Why you will make us awesome:

  • Your skills are more important than your resume
  • Results are more important than perfection
  • Maintainable software is more important than using "hip" technologies
  • Clear code is more important than a rock star attitude
  • Ability to learn is more important than years of experience
  • ...but years of experience aren't bad either ;-)
  • If you are interested, we would like to hear from you.

Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our customers as we’d want to be treated, we treat each other like family, and we treat ourselves to a good day’s work and a good night’s sleep.
