Job Description

This position is intended for Mid-level/Senior, but if you are Junior you are also welcome to apply.

In Gleechi we build great VR training applications for industry. These applications take benefit of our backend infrastructure hosted in the cloud where all sorts of configurations can be made from a web page and applied to the VR app, making them highly customizable. In addition, the backend database stores analytics data of the user experience happening inside the VR and the user can later on assess their results online. And that's where you would be involved.

Skills & Requirements

Our tech stack:
- Python/Django
- GraphQL using graphene framework
- Heroku and AWS

Technical Requirements:

  • For this position it is indispensable that the candidate is fluent and comfortable with Python as well as Django.
  • Experience with backend GraphQL is necessary. If you have worked with REST before and know at least some GraphQL, you're also welcome to apply.
  • Experience with RBDM databases, in particular MySQL or any relational database is fine
  • Has worked with Celery/Redis or any sort of message broker / python async
  • Familiar with design patterns and ability to write clean and modular code
  • Experience with scaling up applications and solving performance bottlenecks

Nice to have:

  • being familiar with Heroku environment is a bonus, but not entirely necessary
  • we have access to AWS services which is currently not being used by this particular project but other projects do. If you have some skills , you'd definitely be able to contribute.
  • TDD/Unit Testing : currently our test procedures are falling short, and we have plans to improve it in the roadmap. Definitely mention if this is something you could contribute
  • MongoDB or any document database : we currently use RBDM as our main database, but there are scenarios where a document database could be in use
  • React or other JS frontend framework: although this is a backend position and we won't expect you to do any FE work, it would still be valuable if you have some knowledge as you'd be working very closely with our FE team.

Who are you:

  • We are looking for someone with a positive attitude who embraces challenges and dares to try something new and different.
  • You like bringing new ideas to the table.
  • You are diligent and the quality of your code is very important to you, but at the same time you're pragmatic and know how to keep a balance between optimizing it vs time to deploy it
  • We don't want unicorns! You don't have to be the best in what you do. Willingness to learn and improve is more important to us
  • You are comfortable with working in a team, but there might be times you'll be on your own to solve a difficult issue. It's important you are comfortable with that as well.
