Full-timeDjango Developer – Tech Specialist

Motius GmbH – Posted by Motius München, Oberbayern, Bayern, Germany

Job Description

In the last years, we successfully built up an R&D company that develops great products using latest technologies. We do this with an unique approach: combining a fixed core team of 40 people and a huge and strong community of developers, engineers, makers, hackers, and designers (freelancers + part-time employees). This unique setup allows us to work on cutting edge technologies / products (e.g. A.I., Chatbots, Blockchain, etc.) with diverse, fast, and interdisciplinary teams. Among our customers are BMW, KPMG, Microsoft, Audi, Siemens, and others.

In order to strengthen our core team in a central technology, we're looking for you as a Django Backend Engineer for a fulltime relocation to Munich, Germany. If preferred, we can include DevOps (Kubernetes, Docker, Openshift) tasks in this role.

Your Profile:

  • Strong software engineering / web applications engineering background (e.g. patterns, architecture)
  • Focus on backend, but also interested in frontend
  • At least one year of professional Django dev experience
  • Good Python developer (Python 3.x)
  • T-shaped skillset, i.e. rough experience in JavaScript stacks, C# / .NET or iOS/Android would be nice
  • Having worked in agile environments, being able to follow and potentially lead the SCRUM process of different teams
  • Good communication skills in English in writing and speaking
  • Having worked with Docker, GitLab CI, or comparable tools

Your Role:

  • Joining 3-6 months long R&D projects (sometimes longer) in engineering teams of 2-5 people
  • Always working with the team here in Munich in our office - we don't do customer-on-site consulting
  • Building complex web applications in Django (mostly our Frontends are built on ReactJS)
  • Following a two-weekly Scrum process using GitLab, Slack, Kanban, Continous Integration & Delivery, etc.
  • Becoming a "Tech Specialist" on this stack, i.e. supporting and coaching other engineers, increasing Motius' knowhow and assets in Django, later supporting in interviewing and hiring other engineers
  • Being part of our Software Engineering cluster and learning new and other technologies

Our Offer:

  • Fulltime employment in Munich, Germany (with relocation and visa support)
  • Competitive salary including a personal and a company-wide bonus system
  • 4h/week reserved for personal development and learning new technologies
  • Unique and inspiring office culture with a lot of smart engineers from different backgrounds (e.g. App developers, Embedded system engineers, Mechanical engineers, Computer Vision researchers etc.) from over 15 different countries
  • Direct impact on the innovation cycles of our customers (new products of the future)
  • Enjoying constant change of topics and technologies - instead of monthly bug fixing and maintenance

Some of the values we share here are

  • open communication and a constant feedback culture (flat hierarchies help here)
  • diverse teams (not really a value, but diverse teams lead to great results in our opinion)
  • committed to personal growth (as a young company, we all grow day by day)
  • eagerness, curiosity, and desire to build new products, learn new things, try things out, fail fast, etc.


How to Apply

The Hiring Process will look like this:

  • Please apply here or via with your CV, GitHub link (or other practical references) and a cover letter, why you want to join Motius (1 DIN A4 page)
  • We'll review the applications and select a few applicants
  • We'll do a Hackerrank Coding Test in order to make the first technical evaluation (2h)
  • First interview will be via Skype. Here we look for a cultural fit and answer all relevant questions. (~45 min)
  • Second interview will be with a technical focus with the CTO (1h), sometimes after a 2nd more complex technical test (~4h)
  • The best 2-4 candidates will come to Germany and each have a test day with us (including lunch with the team etc)
