    Job description

    🌱 How we work

    The backend code is mostly written in Python and runs using Django with lots of workers for all background work. The state is stored in MySQL (MariaDB), and finally, everything runs on Linux with Ansible to automate everything while Sentry helps us with error management.

    We use libraries like Angular, React Native, Bootstrap and tools like Github, Jenkins, Sentry, JIRA, Google Apps, Grunt, Less, etc.

    Our services have tens of thousands of active users to whom we send thousands of lessons and corrections each day. That is why we place emphasis on quality, testing, and code-review of all our code. We have a pretty big codebase (more than 1.2 million lines in Python), and we have to feel comfortable about navigating and progressively improving them. Sometimes, however, we gotta get dirty and figure out why the DB is slow or how to successfully retry a failing API request, etc…

    ⭐️ How we can work together

    We have a strong preference for developers passionate about creating products and solving problems, who are not afraid to rapidly obtain responsibilities and who are able to work autonomosly.

    By joining us:

    • You’ll be able to tackle high-impact projects.
    • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across our teams
    • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
    • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
