Senior Python R&D Developer with English
We are experienced R&D team which constantly improve personalization of our services in cooperation with product teams. One part of our team consists of data scientists who bring in new ideas to make it easier and quicker for people to find an ideal job with the help of machine learning. Their work is followed by developers programming and maintaining systems that bring these ideas into practice. We are one of the “youngest“ teams in LMC but in spite of that, we have a lot of experience behind us and almost every product relies on the results of our work.
What will be your job?
Together we will program backend applications using NoSQL technology in Python 3 and develop our monitoring and deployment tools in Docker infrastructure. Your job will be expansion and technological upgrade of existing products, as well as conversion of prototypes from Jupyter notebook to new production code.
You will run hundreds of microservices with us and process some solid amount of data so your code will have to scale, send metrics, and be reasonably covered by automated testing. You will be responsible for developing and operating some of our products.
Important notice: We are open for home-office, but we need you in-house in Prague at least 3 days per working week.
How do we work together?
Along with you, we will now be a 10-member team where everyone, including the product manager, can program. We run Agile with standups and retrospectives and try to do things simply, but also in a clear and understandable way. We do not keep the call-on duty every night, instead of that we rather create such reliable applications that nobody needs to deal with anything other than infrastructure at night.
We keep an eye on the clarity of the assignment in Jira, we are versioning in Git, we are mutually reviewing the code in Stash and we keep clear flake8 and PyTest. Most of us use Linux and PyCharm, but it's not a problem to use OS X or Windows and write the code for example in vim.
We get along well together, we go to team lunches regularly and from time to time visit some conference together. We are active in the community supporting PyCon CZ and the emerging PyData meeting in Prague. Some of you may know us personally from Pyvo meetups in Prague :)
What is unique about us?
We are already big enough to work with interesting technologies and on really non-trivial problems, but we are still small enough not to be disturbed by the bureaucracy and to influence technologies we use. In R&D we continually explore and implement new technologies, which often sink roots in the rest of the company, making it easy for you to become an expert in an interesting area.
And what will make you happy with us?
• You will gain and exchange experience at Czech and foreign conferences
• Team of great people will boost up your good mood everyday – it is better to try it in real than to write about it.
• Week of extra holiday plus 5 additional free days for anything and a free day on your birthday.
• Tea Room with the best tea from all over Asia. Or do you prefer excellent fair-trade coffee?
• You will enhance your cultural and sporting spirit thanks to the nice credit at Cafeteria.
• Home office is a matter of course, and you may want to finally work out your work-life balance.
• Otherwise, children and dogs are welcome.
• Well, this way we could go on and on ...
