We're looking for a Django engineer who loves animals to come work with us. This person will report to the CTO and will work on our Django-based website and API.
The position is based in Greenville, SC (our company headquarters). Candidates must be willing to relocate to Greenville within 90 days of employment. If your dog has a say in the matter, he’ll definitely want to commute to the office as well. Unlimited toys, treats and belly rubs – need we say more?
What is engineering at BringFido?
Our software team is small & efficient. We implement UI features that sit next to brands like Airbnb and Expedia in the customer journey, while optimizing for performance and search and supporting ourselves with clean code, strong processes, and unit tests.
