Sr or Lead Python Engineer, Hollywood

Our client in central Los Angeles/Hollywood is a Pre-Series A funded startup backed by premier venture capital and generating solid revenues. Ideal time to join this company, as they’re past the “super early risky stage” but still early enough to make a huge impact & hopefully an equity stake that could mean something. The exec team are good friends of the firm, characterized by solid education and a mix of early stage startup/established tech brand experience. The company is creating a powerful platform for referral marketing with F500 and other established clients.

We are looking for ambitious and passionate types who write clean, efficient code and have a positive attitude. Startup culture is a must – which means you roll up your sleeves, multi-task effectively, and have a true sense of ownership over the quality of your work.

Your career trajectory will move at the rate of the company’s growth, which is currently pretty impressive. We are looking for someone who could be a right hand to the CTO, providing mentorship to the rest of the dev team as well as obviously continuing to build a valuable product. You’ll also have good exposure to the founder/CEO and the head of product, so if you are not a product and user focused engineer…it’s probably not a fit. If you’re motivated to influence product vision, build a cool company and make a huge impact with meaningful equity, then this is a perfect fit!

Work/life balance is also important, so we are looking for people who can be highly productive and not just “clock in”. Many fine perks including early shutdown on Fridays + happy hour, flexible vacation, continuing education, health insurance, stock options, and bonuses.
