WANTED: A Django developer to join our co-operative digital team. Use your knowledge of technology and your developer skills to help amazing charities and nonprofits change the world through building websites and web apps.
You will be a crucial part of our team, helping us to deliver our projects and have a big impact on the world.
There’s plenty of technical jargon in here, but simply put, we’re looking for intelligent people who have an eagerness to learn new things, and the communication skills to be able to work effectively with our team and our partners.
As well as the technical knowledge, we need people that get it—people who are natural problem solvers and know when to yell for support, helping to cut down and simplify complex problems with code that functions smoothly alongside design and front-end code.
We’re looking for the right person over any specific laundry list of skills but here’s our wishlist. If you have some/all of these, we’d love to hear from you.
- Telecommuting is OK
- No Agencies Please
You should probably have some mix of these…
- A keenness to be working closely and collaboratively with frontend developers and designers
- Knowledge of Python and Django
- An interest in Wagtail, our favourite CMS framework
- An understanding of working with Git and using GitHub
- Being able to review other peoples code to encourage cooperative learning and promote best practices
- Following test driven development and passing unit tests
- Proven experience
We also like talking to people who enjoy…
- Working in an agency environment (albeit a not for profit one!)
- Being able to work on projects for charities and non-profits
- Writing Pythonic code
- Optimising page speed for the right level of performance
- Caring about their impact on society
About the Company
We are The Developer Society, a not-for-profit co-op filled with digital designers, developers and campaigners, working with big names like Choose Love, Lumos, Church of England, Oxfam, Business Human Rights Resource Centre, Samaritans and many more. If you’d like to join our team and help us to deliver great work then we want to hear from you.
Our Studio is in the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham. You can work from wherever you like, but we try to get together as a team in one place a couple of times a year – pandemic dependent – and we ask that your working hours have a significant overlap with the GMT timezone.
