Full-time Need for python developer

at Songza in Onsite

Job Description:

Songza, a venture-funded startup in the music space, is looking for a Python Software Engineer. The person we're looking for loves Python, loves shipping code, and loves music.

About the company

Songza is a lifestyle enhancement service. Our goal is to make the things our users do every day better. Our free streaming music service has expert-made playlists for every occasion and makes it outrageously easy to find the right one, at the right time.

Songza is growing at a breakneck pace, with millions of new users this year. That growth, coupled with high app ratings and an incredible word-of-mouth buzz on Twitter, has Songza poised for an incredibly successful (and fun) year.

We work hard. We play music all day. We high five when awesome things happen. We love what we do.

What Python is used for:

Our entire backend is Python. Web servers are Django, with some Tornado thrown in for good measure. We use fabric for deployment. Unittest and nose for testing. PIL for image processing. Hg for source control. You need to be able to swim in the deep end of the Python pool.

Everything runs on Linux, hosted on AWS. You must be comfortable living in the Linux command-line environment.

Plusses are experience with mongodb, nginx, gunicorn, and building REST-ful applications and servers. Map-Reduce, Hadoop, and mrjob would really excite us.

This is a high-speed environment, where everybody makes a difference. Code we write in the morning is often in production the same afternoon. Your ability to drive technical decisions is a function of how good your design and code are, not your job title or how well you dress.
