Job Title

Remote Python Developer for GAE microservices

Job Description

Mission of our Python Developer

You assist in programming the foundations of Pit&Pit on Google App Engine. You ensure optimal user convenience of our website for employees and clients through application of backend microservices. You create a fast and solid code that is well-structured and documented.

Goals of our Python Developer

Within your first month, you understand our repositories and the concept of our code base. You know the structure and grasp the what's, where's and why's of our code. You know the code and understand the underlying parts and foundations. You know our focus points. You will build your first tested and user-ready microservice from scratch by use of a clear API definition. You receive approval from the users and feel hungry for more.

Within the first quarter you will be able to elaborate a complete subproject, consisting of new and existing microservices, from idea to operational product. Throughout the process, you communicate efficiently with all stakeholders to ensure that the result meets the demands and goals of the project. You make suggestions to improve working conditions and tools so that everybody can work in a more efficient and enjoyable way.

On the longer term, you will learn to manage the entire python code base. You give shape to the infrastructure and manage large parts of the system. You can easily respond to the needs and demands of the team.

Skills and competencies

  • Goal-driven - You are result-driven, focused, realistic and resourceful.
  • Responsible - Most of the time you will work on your own. You have enough self-discipline to always go the extra mile for Pit&Pit. You don't need anybody who directs or motivates you.
  • Persistent - You are motivated and have a heart for Pit&Pit. You are a go-getter. The possibilities in IT are endless: if you can explain it, you can program it. You love challenges.
  • Energetic - You work hard, fast-paced, are vital and always want to go forward.
  • Good judgement - You have your own opinion based on common sense and relevant criteria. You communicate your judgment in a clear manner and are willing to re-evaluate it if necessary.
  • Vision - You are able to think ahead, you are aware of current market trends and new developments.
  • Pragmatic - You do not like to work according to rigorous standard rules because 'that's the way everybody does it'. However, you work very orderly and structured. You dare to think out of the box: "everybody said it wasn't possible, until someone came who did not know that" (which was you).
  • Innovative - Every day new, interesting projects and new opportunities pop up. An interest in new techniques is required in order to maintain the code of Pit&Pit efficient and up to date. New insights and chances energize the whole team. For this reason you have to be very efficient at putting the most suitable innovations in web development into practice so that efficiency and stability are continuously improved.
