We are a small team that is rapidly working on the prototype of our real-time business chat application for the past 6+ months. The application allows users to chat with our virtual assistants in order to accomplish common business tasks like CRUD commands on a connected CRM database, scheduling meetings, and more.
We are getting close to an Minimum Viable Product (MVP) launch but need some help getting there. The project is fairly well documented, includes build scripts for the front-end stuff (webpack) and includes local setup instructions for all other components.
A detailed project overview and demo will be provided to the winning developer(s) after signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement. We use the following tools, technologies and frameworks:
- Heroku / AWS
We are looking for multiple developers (backend, frontend and full stack) to join the team on a part-time basis to make meaningful contributions to the project - feature development, troubleshooting, and bug fixes. We require all team members to write clean Pythonic code that s by PEP-8 standards and to provide unit tests and code comments & simple documentation. Perfect spoken English is not required, but you must be able to communicate your ideas in writing.
We primarily use Skype for chat, Trello to manage feature development priorities, Bitbucket for code repository + issue management.
The ideal candidate will be excited by problem solving and should be up-to-date on new technologies, frameworks and trends. Bonus points if you listen to the "Talk Python To Me" podcast :)
Some of the initial tasks will be:
- New API integrations + Oauth
- Celery + Django Signals optimization and bug fixes
Although the initial project is part-time, we hope to find capable developers to join the team for long-term, remote contract work or sponsored relocation to our New York office.
