Job Title

Mid/Senior Python Contract Developer

Job Description

Cdev is building a Serverless development framework that will be the future of Python Serverless development. We are looking for a full time Mid-Senior Python contract developer to help maintain and expand our SDK . You will work collaboratively with the founder to support the development of the SDK. You will have opportunities to help design and implement core features and api’s.

The ideal candidate will have experience building or maintaining large Python codebases. This person should be able to design and implement features within an established framework’s design philosophy. They should exemplify a level of thoughtfulness and empathy when designing features that will be used by end users of the framework.

Remote (although you have the option to visit or work at our office in Durham, NC)


Majority of the work will be asynchronous collaboration on the framework’s code base. At the beginning, we will need to have blocks of synchronous time to help with onboarding onto the code base. After that, you should generally be available to schedule synchronous meetings (with the EST time zone) when given 36 hours of notice. Since you will be working directly with me on the code base, I will be highly available for synchronous communications whenever you need.

About the Company

Cdev is focused on creating the tools to enable a terrific developer experience when building Serverless Applications with Python. We believe that by unlocking the value of Serverless Development, we can enable more people to use software to solve problems. We have created a custom framework with optimizations that make developing Serverless applications on Aws feel like writing normal Python. As we begin to transition efforts to helping early adopters build with our SDK, we need help to maintain development efforts on the core SDK.
