  • Ensure the scalability and reliability of a distributed processing backend that processes a high volume of 3D scans per day.

  • Develop tools that empower our internal operations team to efficiently manage scan data.

You should have:

  • Professional experience in a similar role, solving real customer problems and building systems at high self-sufficiency level.

  • Knowledge of Python.

  • Familiarity with Django (and Django Rest Framework).

  • Strong communication skills. We are a high-communication team, so you’ll be expected to share progress frequently, and raise blockers and concerns proactively
