Description:
About the role:

As an Engineer, your main focus is project work, working closely with designers, coaches, product leads, and with guidance and mentoring from other members of the Engineering team. You will be assigned a representative from the Engineering team (usually a Team Engineer or Tech Community Lead) to aid your progression and help you move forward with your career at Potato.

You will join one of our friendly, supportive, proactive Agile product teams, you’ll be working closely with fellow developers, designers, and other team members. Our teams are self-organising, with the freedom to define their own ways of working.

Most of our products are web-based and use Python on the server, most often Django on Google App Engine (sometimes Firebase, AWS, or Azure). We use a mix of relational and non-relational databases, and other cloud services. We aim to strike a balance between leveraging our existing strengths and exploring new tech. While this listing focusses on Python, we try to avoid silos: our developers are encouraged to contribute to any part of a system they’d like to. We’re particularly interested in speaking to applicants with a background in security, or those with a good knowledge of security vulnerabilities and how to prevent them.

---------

About you:

We expect developers at Potato to be able to find creative solutions to technical problems and user needs, whilst also finding opportunities to optimise and simplify software. For this role, we’re looking for someone capable of supporting, guiding and empowering teams to produce excellent software, striking the right balance between perfection and delivery. Experience with Google App Engine is a plus, but not mandatory.

We’re looking for someone who writes great code, but also enjoys collaborating with other disciplines in the product team to devise creative solutions to the users’ needs. For this role, you should have an appreciation of the full web stack, as well as an appreciation of current trends in both backend and frontend web technologies.

---------

You will be accountable for:

Write idiomatic, performant and maintainable code

Find creative solutions to technical problems and user needs, whilst also finding opportunities to optimise and simplify software

Strike the right balance between perfection and delivery

Work in a friendly, self-organising, cross-functional, Agile product team

Support other Engineers within the team

Collaborate closely with other disciplines such as Designers and Product Leads

Architecting the backend of new projects, or large additions to existing code-bases

---------

You must have:

Experience building for the web using Python and Django

Experience using modern development tools (e.g. Git, GitLab or GitHub etc.) within a development team

Excellent teamwork, and written and verbal communication skills

---------

Ideally also:

An understanding of security vulnerabilities and how to prevent them

Experience with backend Python frameworks such as Flask or FastAPI

Experience launching high-quality digital products

Experience with Google App Engine or a similar PaaS

An understanding of both relational and non-relational databases

Experience creating secure and well-designed APIs

Experience building for scale: high traffic, big data, large feature sets

Front-end web or native app development skills

Knowledge of testing, QA tools and methodologies

Familiarity with Agile methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban

---------

Culture:

Working shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best engineers, designers and product leads in town, we’ll give you the freedom to manage your own work and trust you to get things done. Want to work from home occasionally? Go for it. Need to unwind with a game of pool or some studio dog cuddles? All good. Ultimately, we just want to make sure that you have everything you need to help us build the best products possible.

You’ll have many opportunities for growth and learning: collaboration within teams, rotation to different products, experimentation on internal tools, involvement in new business and pitching, our Potato Talks events, mentorship, training courses, and conferences.

---------

Inclusivity:

We want to make our hiring as inclusive as possible, this job description has been reviewed by a range of employees and has passed a neutral language check. We have also reviewed our hiring process to make sure it offers flexibility to candidates that need it.

We're trying to do better and would love your feedback. If you think there's anything we could improve, or places you think we should advertise, then please let us know.
