Freelance Python and Django Full Stack Web Developer

About the opportunity 

As a part-time freelance software engineer, you will be part of a remote team, working together on a few different software development projects, all resorting to the same technical stack. The main focus will be on performing maintenance development for these projects. You will be responsible for writing code, implementing changes in both front-end and back-end sections. 

What we are looking for 

In our selection criteria we value key skills needed to carry out a role effectively over ticking boxes for qualification, background, education level, or years of experience. This translates to: 

  • Technical skills: You have demonstrated proficiency in Python and Django in addition to web development skills, code versioning skills (git, github), and SQL database skills. You are up to date with the latest HTML/CSS/AJAX/etc. and are comfortable with Linux.
  • Strong work ethic: You have a high output quotient and are predisposed to getting things done and taking action. You prioritise the most important things we should be focusing on as an organisation, and zero in on those that have the potential for the greatest impact without letting the smaller day to day tasks fall through the cracks. 
  • Reliable: You are trustworthy, committed and have a strong inner-drive. You are motivated by your role, team members, and the organization and as such continually strive for achievement. You take initiative and possess an unbounded intellectual curiosity. You follow through and complete tasks to meet goals.

We offer 

  • A mission which is bigger than all of us: to create a positive impact in people’s lives in emerging markets
  • Many growth opportunities and responsibilities if you’re interested
  • An entrepreneurial culture where you’re surrounded by a young and diverse team
  • Autonomy, flexibility and a decentralized organizational design
  • The freedom to do your work from anywhere at your own schedule
