Job Description

We’re looking for a collaborative and self-motivated senior software engineer, full-stack to join our quickly growing team and make a big impact.

As a senior software engineer on the PRM Team, you’ll work closely with software engineers, product managers, and designers, to ensure that the content available to our customers meets their expectations. You’ll work on major technical projects with large data volumes, lead the building of new user facing features, and help shape our engineering culture and processes. Our tech stack includes Python, Django, Celery, MySQL, Elasticsearch, Vue, and Webpack. Our technology team is focused on scale, quality, delivery, and thoughtful customer experience. We ship frequently without sacrificing work/life balance.

To be set up for success in this role, you’ll need to have:

  • 5+ years total professional experience as a software engineer
  • Proficiency with Django or a similar framework
  • Proficiency with Vue.js or a similar framework
  • Proficiency with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

If any of the below also describe you, this could be an exciting opportunity:

  • Worked on a complex, high-traffic site at a startup or software-as-a-service company, ideally with large amounts of data
  • Experience with MySQL (or Postgres) and/or ElasticSearch
  • Experience with Celery
  • Interest in journalism, news, media or social media

In addition, we’re always looking for candidates who:

  • Have excellent communication skills, with an ability to explain ideas clearly, give and receive feedback, and work well with team members
  • Exhibit a willingness to learn in areas where they have less experience with our tech stack
  • Take pride in the quality of their code. (Your code should be readable, testable, and understandable years later. You adhere to the Zen of Python.)
  • Work well in a fast-paced development environment with testing, continuous integration and multiple daily deploys
  • Have the ability to manage complexity in a large project, and incur technical debt only after considering the tradeoffs
  • Take a logical approach to problem solving that combines analytical thinking and intuition

Interview Overview
