RentShare is a fast growing, angel funded startup that is here to kill the rent check.
We are currently seeking a talented python developer to tackle a variety of projects. Here is a description of one such project: https://code.rentshare.com/projects/async_http/ -- If it seems like the sort of coding you get excited about (and you think that you would jive with our company culture) then let’s try to find a way to work together! We pay competitive rates and offer some nice perks!
WHAT WE RUN:
All our development is done on linux, specifically Ubuntu and that’s what our servers run. We have a custom in-house python framework that does some fancy stuff you can’t do in django, but we do still use django for the content related aspects of the site. Our database is sql but we love new tech and have been playing around with different types of databases, specifically Neo4j, for fun. Sometimes we have to build python bindings in C. We use trello for project management. We constantly develop and upgrade our “close to the metal” style realtime payment infrastructure. We don’t (and can’t) use any of these stripe style magic box payment abstraction apis. We work with bleeding edge encryption and security information technology. We’re all about open source and the community and submit patches when we fix things in software we use and contribute new projects when we can.
WHO WE ARE:
We are a young company run by young founders. Currently, we are headquartered in a fun shared office space in SoHo alongside other killer startups (including Indiegogo, Gojee, and Take The Interview)We don’t hold to strict schedules. Sometimes we don’t work on tuesdays, sometimes we work on saturdays, sometimes we do our work at the office, at home, at coffee shops, or outside (if we can find wifi)...basically we have deadlines and we hit them in whatever way works best for whoever is working on it.
