Listen up. A company I used to work for, iTrackr, is looking for a Python developer. I cannot take this job myself, because I have other obligations elsewhere. However, I promised to help them find a suitable developer, so here goes.
Let me be clear here. There is an existing code base, parts of which no longer work, and the idea is to get it working again as soon as possible. So what they need is someone who can hit the ground running; someone who can start immediately, take this code, analyze it, and start making noticeable improvements very soon. This is why the candidate must already be very familiar with Pylons and SQLAlchemy; if you “sort of” know it, sorry, this job is not for you.
Note: I don’t work for this company anymore; right now I am simply functioning as the middle man, helping them out to find a developer who is a good fit for this position. I am not a recruiter, so don’t send me your sales pitch; rather, just send me your resume, tell me something about yourself, and if you look like a suitable candidate, I will forward it to the company. You will have to negotiate payment rates, working hours, etc, with their management.
The company is based in South Florida, but you don’t have to be local. Working remotely is an option. Of course, you are expected to keep the team up-to-date through email, IM and/or conference calls.
If you’re interested, drop me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention “iTrackr job” in the subject. I will look at all the replies and send the suitable ones to the company.
(I am using this “informal” way to find a developer, rather than using e.g. the Python Job Board, because they need to find someone *fast*. If necessary, I will repost on the job board, though.)
