Senior Python/Django Engineer

Remote, Netherlands

Apexive is a boutique software studio that creates top-notch technology for startups. 

We have a remote-first culture, and this position can be based anywhere. We encourage you to work in the way that best suits you. The company is led by a software architect (the founder actually codes), so you'll never feel like a cog in the machine. Everyone has the chance to make decisions that steer the company as a whole. 

While we are technology agnostic and believe in using the right tools for a given challenge, we are experts in cutting-edge frameworks and platforms, such as Flutter/Dart, Google Cloud Platform/AWS/Kubernetes, Python/Django, and Terraform, to name very a few. This is a full-time position.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Chief Technology Officer. For this role, we are considering candidates who are remote-based. Apexive offers different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team.

 Our Hiring Process  

1. Apply via the button above, and share a fragment of your recent code using Django and Django-rest-framework that you are proudest of. Please note that it should be the specific project/repository, not just your whole GH/GL profile.
