  • Comfortable working remotely
  • Comfortable working independently or collaboratively
  • Willing to participate in a rotating on-call schedule

  • An Authentication/Payment backend written in Python
  • A PostgreSQL database with a custom C extension to track changes

You Have:

  • A solid understanding of modern backend applications
  • Experience with modern API design and ideally know your way around in a web framework such as Ruby on Rails, Django, or Sinatra
  • Experience with a either Ruby, Python, or a similar scripting language
  • An appreciation for well written, tested and documented code
  • Experience with Linux or a BSD
  • Experience with Git and GitHub

Bonus Points For:

  • Knowing your way around the network stack, from HTTP to TCP to IP and have a solid understanding of security (TLS/ IPSec/firewalls)

Marketcircle Inc. is a young, fun, and distributed tech company. We believe in the power of Kaizen (continuous learning), teamwork, creativity, ownership and empathy. By embodying those core values we know we impact the lives our customers, and each other. Our mission to empower small businesses worldwide drives us to develop a native macOS and iOS app that helps thousands create organization out of what would otherwise be chaos. Tired of a long commute to work? As long as you have reliable internet you can work from anywhere. We expect results - not monkeys sitting in cubes for 10 hours a day!

We also make it a point to do activities together, like axe throwing, escape rooms, evenings out, etc.
