Your skills:

  • Expertise with Python, Django, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • A history of high quality production web apps

You have:

  • Passion (as seen in your apps and side-projects)
  • Easy-going personality (team fit is crucial)
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills (we value clarity)
  • Results focused (you maintain a high signal to noise ratio)

We offer:

  • Great product—the world’s fastest growing narrative entertainment platform
  • Seasoned team backed by A-list investors
  • Chance to flex and make a deep impact
