Job Title

Senior Back-end developer - Python/Django

Job Description

KiWi is growing, and we are now looking for a Senior Back-end Developer in Valencia, with the option to work remotely.

You will lead the enhancement of our back-end (Python/Django), with the objective of making it more scalable and providing services to new markets.

The main technologies we are currently dealing with are:

  • App Platform (PaaS from DigitalOcean);
  • PostgreSQL and Redis (managed by DigitalOcean);
  • Ubuntu stable with Python 3.8;
  • Docker w/ Compose;
  • Django and DRF;
  • Celery and Celery Beat;
  • GitHub Actions for CI and CD;
  • Sentry (for exceptions and performance monitoring).

Don't be scared if you haven't used all of these: we are here to help you whenever you need it.

Also, don't be shy: we'd love to learn some more tricks or tools from you.


  • Telecommuting is OK
  • No Agencies Please


We are looking for people in or near Valencia, able to speak English and Spanish, fluent with Python.

What we'd like to find in the new candidates:

  • Willingness to improve our Django 2.2 project and help us to migrate to Django 3.2;
  • Openness when writing and receiving code reviews - nothing gets merged without approvals;
  • Passion for testing and test-driven development - when we find a bug we write a test to reproduce it, then we fix the problem;
  • DevOps spirit - we are a small team which builds and runs our software, sometimes with the help of the DigitalOcean crew.
