Job Title

Python/Django Software Engineer

Job Description

MORSE is looking for Pythonistas to help us build a big data storage and analysis website. We strive to be as Pythonic as possible, with test-driven-development (TDD) guiding us. We hit 100% unit testing coverage wherever possible (we are at 96.7% overall for the system now).

The Python/Django Software Engineer will be focused on testable design and implementation of software in a Django environment. The engineer will participate in reviews of their designs and others’ designs, and in code reviews using pull requests. Additionally, the engineer will be writing some HTML/CSS/JavaScript. Creative candidates who want to make an immediate impact will thrive in the MORSE environment.

Additionally, the candidate must be eager to learn new technologies and stay on top of the latest trends. The candidate will work on a team developing new code bases that are heavily object-oriented, extensible, and maintainable. Therefore, the candidate must have a tacit understanding of design patterns and anti-patterns; polymorphism and encapsulation; high cohesion and low coupling; and the different strengths and weakness of various programming languages.
