This position is ideal for someone who enjoys small organizations, multi-tasking, and a highly flexible work environment. Our developers share a passion for making things work in challenging situations and seeing the impact of our work first-hand. Our Global technology team helps develop and improve our platform’s architecture design for expressing end-to-end system workflows, both at the functional and technical levels.

  • Mentor and coach junior engineers.
  • Brainstorm ideas on how to improve our software design and development process continually.
  • Work as part of a team to deliver product features and functionality.

Requirements:

  • Required:
    • 5+ years of software development experience.
    • Experienced in developing enterprise-quality software in a high-level language such as Python or Ruby.
    • Background in building software for the web.
    • Experienced in leading architecture and design decisions.
    • Fluency in written and spoken English.
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
    • Familiarity with the Django framework.
    • Ability to mentor and assist junior developers.
    • Eligible to work in South Africa.
  • Beneficial:
    • Familiarity with components of our tech stack. We use Python, Django, Postgres, CouchDB, Elasticsearch, Javascript, and HTML..
    • Bachelors or Masters Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience.
    • Enthusiasm about working in public health and international development.
    • Familiarity with open-source technology.

Benefits and Contractual information:

  • This position will be required to overlap with US Eastern Time working hours for at least four hours every day.
  • Open to remote work.
  • Permanent role.
