Sr. Python Engineer - NYC, NY

Senior Python Engineer

Company is a leading interactive strategy, design, and development agency with a phenomenal office culture, complete with a gorgeous design space in the Flatiron district, complete with game room and office dog. People tend to stay here a while - we have a great reputation and we try to live up to it!

As a senior Python engineer you will be leading the architecture, design and coding of our projects. You will lead small teams of talented engineers and collaborate with front end developers, information architects, business analysts and visual designers. We are partial to true engineers who apply their computer science background to the efficient and powerful art of software development.

Our typical engagement size and the size of our teams makes it possible for all team members to craft and shape the experiences we produce, with the full support of the leads and directors. The flexibility of our process makes for happy clients and the unusual ability to produce exactly the work you envision. If you want to make a real difference on a project, this is your dream role.

Off projects, you will be expected to teach your colleagues something they didn’t know in an area you are excited about. Is mobile app development your fantasy? How about service oriented architectures or software development lifecycle?
