Description

We're looking for a talented Django developer to work on next year's Shorty Awards site. The Shorty Awards, now in its 8th year, are the awards for the best of social media. Past winners include Ricky Gervais, Taylor Swift, Conan O'Brien, Cory Booker, Jenna Marbles, Retta, George Takei, Bella Thorne, and Jerry Seinfeld. The Shortys also honor the best work by brands and media companies on social media. The annual ceremony brings together people in real life from around the world.

ABOUT THE POSITION

You’ll be working with the Shorty Awards production team to execute a major update to the Shorty Awards website.

Our tech stack includes Python, Django, Celery, SASS, Redis, Elasticsearch, Nginx, Ansible, Gunicorn, Varnish, and Heroku.

This is a freelance job that can be done mostly remotely. It'd be ideal if you were in New York and could meet us in person. If not, it'd be best if you were in the EST timezone.

ABOUT YOU

You'll be successful if you:

  • Have significant experience working on a complex, high-traffic site, particularly at a startup or software-as-a-service company.
  • Have 2-4 years experience with Django, Python, and other software in our tech stack, with a willingness to learn in those areas where you have less experience.
  • Enjoy working with and collaborating with designers, UX experts, and product managers to create outstanding features.
  • Take pride in the quality of the code you write. Your code is readable, testable, and understandable six months later. You adhere to the Zen of Python.
  • Are able to manage complexity in a large project, and incur technical debt only after considering the tradeoffs.
  • Work well in a fast-paced development environment with testing, continuous integration and multiple daily deploys.
