We’re working with a company that’s building a tool that assembles all of your notes for you at the beginning of every call you take. They’re looking for a lead hands on contributor who can help them iterate on their technical infrastructure.

They’re using fast api, celery, and react on the frontend. The focus would be on building out their web api and event driven workflows though if you could contribute on the react front that’d be great as well.

You’d be working alongside their CTO and two mid-level other engineers, one frontend focused and one full stack. This is hands on role but you’d likely be providing some support to these other engineers in the form of mentorship and PR reviews.

About You

Roughly in order of importance:

  • You have python experience
  • You have experience building web apis
  • You have experience building out event driven workflows
  • You have ops experience
  • You have react experience
  • You have 10+ years experience
