Senior Back-End Django/Python Developer at Layar

Amsterdam,NetherlandsDec 17, 2013


We are looking for an experienced Python developer to strengthen our back-end team. You will be part of the team that builds the infrastructure and tooling that support our mobile app. The main challenges for the coming year will be to expand our set of APIs for 3rd party integration, re-engineer and scale our statistics and data warehouse capabilities and tailor our tools for both larger enterprises as well as the long tail consumer market.


You will be reporting to the Server Team Lead, joining a team of server developers with varied skills in web development, systems development, devops and QA.

Your primary roles will be to champion good software development practices in the team and to deliver high quality Python code. You will contribute to architecture and technical design of our back-end and of the Layar ecosystem as a whole.


As senior software engineer, we expect you to be an experienced coder and technical designer, with a proven track record of designing, building, delivering and maintaining multi-server, scalable systems. A passion for delivering good products is essential. You know not only to make a computer do what you want, but also how to build (and keep building) a complex software product, within a varied and dynamic team.

We are specifically looking for:

  • A proven track record in working on heterogeneous and distributed systems.
  • 4+ Years of Python development experience.
  • Experience with distributed source control (e.g. Mercurial, Git).
  • Flexibility to deal with a rapidly changing environment.

Preferably you also have:

  • Experience with Python frameworks such as Django and Twisted.
