    Python Back-End Developers- Platform API

  • Sector:


  • Job type:

    Direct Hire

  • Job ref:


Python Developers

Largely responsible for the success of: 

  • Product experiences

  • We are building an API product to shape our customer facing experience. 

  • We can partner more closely with development agencies

  • We can attract “official” technical partnerships! 


First 6 months

- Taking a product with huge market traction and exposing 100% of its capabilities.

- Collapse redundancy

- Bringing true version APIs


First 90 days

  • Focused on all of onboarding

  • Also has an internal onboarding doc to understand existing and new architectural patterns

  • A lot of what we’re doing in platform is building new things but also migrating existing feature functionality to new architectural patterns.

    • Consistency, documentation, performance

  • In API we tag work that’s appropriate for newer team mates, as teammates are learning the platform and contributing, they’re pulling those tickets first. More bite sized, they get to work through the process a few times - get some repetition

  • It’s not just sit down and write code, it’s full cycle, from taking ticket, ensuring it’s ready to work w product, code review feedback, engineers in API handle their own deployments and post deploy verification both in staging and keeping up on monitoring tools - handling any potential side effects from their deploys

  • It’s worth being mindful of the fact this organization


Coolest thing we’re doing right now

  • Go truly cross platform and no platform

  • Getting old product stuff tied to shopify and it’s data structures off, getting into a more flexible product model. 


Team culture/day to day: 

  • Deploy multiple times a day

  • Coder problems

  • We have a huge emphasis on pragmatism

  • API is working off of a Kanban board - we dont push work into a sprint, but we take our measurements every two weeks as you would in more of a scrum based environment

  • Hybrid agile environment

  • Some formalities are scrum but it’s mostly kanban

  • We do retrospectives, grooming for tickets, most notably we don’t have long planning meetings.

3 goals

 - make it work (pragmatism)

 - prove it works with code (test)

 - make it better (scale)


Engineering Managers idea of a successful technical assessment and also what we focus on within pragmatism. 



  • Working most closely with Platform Services and Infrastructure

  • We work with a structure similar to Spotify squad model, one pm + em and engineers, so this team works often with product for prioritization

  • We sit on top of Infrastructure, features sits on top of us.
