Python Developer for Pittsburgh Startup

at Rent Jungle in Pittsburgh, PA   —   Apr 16, 2014   |  
Our Team
Overview
We are looking for a talented, experienced Python programmer as we expand our development efforts from our offices in Downtown Pittsburgh. You would own the majority of day-to-day coding for the backend systems that power Rent Jungle’s data-gathering systems under the direct supervision of our Lead Developer and/or our Founder/CEO. Your primary responsibility will be to improve, update, and expand the spider behind rentjungle.com.

A strong understanding of Python, unstructured data, spidering and search, and database technology is a must. If you do have search experience, please highlight this in your resume. You should also have experience with, or a strong desire to learn, PHP as you may also occasionally be asked to do some work on our frontend systems using CakePHP and Javascript.

We are a fast-paced, small, startup company. As the perfect candidate, you must thrive in unstructured environments where deadlines and product requirements change frequently. We work long hours and have lots of fun doing it.

When applying for this position, please include relevant samples of work.
