  • You are a great community ambassador and can drive hard technical conversations towards a good solution.
  • You have solid experience with widely used frameworks and libraries like Asyncio, Django, Flask, Falcon, and Celery.
  • You want to work in a fast, high growth startup environment.
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a STEM field or equivalent experience.

Bonus points:

  • You run your applications in PyPy or other interpreter implementations.
  • You have significant experience with Go, Java, JavaScript or Ruby.
