Seez · May 21st 2020
Seez is growing and taking on more projects, and we're looking for some new bright colleagues to help us with the challenging projects. We are focusing on the backend and are looking for some strong colleagues to work on python development projects. Our entire backend architecture is heavily built with python and you're expected to know your way around the language.
We have a core backend pipeline that runs webscrapers on a daily basis, aggregating data from multiple sources in multiple countries. This data is feed through a pipeline that cleans and updates the data continuously. This aggregated data can be viewed by our users on the Seez apps. We apply machine learning on multiple projects. The new projects will build upon the current architecture and some will be completely independent projects that may re-use some of the existing infrastructure.
A quick overview of our backend technology stack:
Python 3 (Flask, FastAPI, Scrapy)
Redis and Celery
You will have freedom, you will be challenged, and you will not be shut down due to bureaucracy, but your voice will be heard. You are expected to be able to handle multiple tasks and shouldn't be afraid to take on challenges. However, you are expected to consider the challenges and be able to propose feedback. You will be part of a team and you are expected to pull on your teammates when need, but also be able to run on your own and actively seek feedback on projects.
We value communication very highly and you will be expected to participate and join discussions in product development as well as company direction, lastly, you are not a code monkey. We have a very free and open minded culture and are preferably looking for someone with the same mentality.
We value growing our team and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to jump into our other projects and get familiar with our other projects. You will be a part of a distributed team from the Middle East and across Europe. We will only accept applicants that are within +2 hours of CEST. Daily communication is done through Slack and we use Zoom extensively. We have multiple weekly meetings - not counting one-on-ones and project related interactions.
