Back End Developer

About the Role

We are looking for candidates who love to build cool shit! This role is not only about writing code but is tightly integrated into the product development loop. This means being involved with the design process and making touch points with every stage in the iteration process. 

As we are making some of our very first hires, not only will you receive equity options within the company, but there is also the opportunity for unlimited growth as the company scales.

As a Back End Developer at Portant you will be building the platform that Portant runs on. You will be creating and managing data models, working on automation processes, and developing other systems required for the platform. Along with these tasks, you will help implement robust REST endpoints used downstream in our own products but also used for an external developer facing API.

What we’re looking for

We believe the most important attribute in a developer is passion and willingness to learn. A display of ambition shown through personal projects is just as, if not a lot more, valuable to us than a university degree. For this role specifically we are looking for candidates who have...

• Experience in Python

• Experience or interest in learning Django/Django Rest Framework

• Experience building REST APIs

• Experience with PostgreSQL or other SQL databases

• Experience or familiarity with Docker

• Familiarity with Git

About us

Portant is a startup on a mission to delete repetition from the workday. We’re building a suite of document automation tools that allow users to focus on what really matters. We are in the process of scaling which includes growing our team.

Since we are making our first hires we are committed to establishing a strong culture from day one. We believe in flexible times, asynchronous/remote work, autonomy, and ownership - all while having fun. At Portant we take a strong product-led approach by listening closely to customers and iterating quickly with a “just ship it” attitude.
