Lacoda is hiring Python developers.
We're building a web application that does loan management for real estate lending. Our customers are small lenders who provide loans for real estate construction. Our product makes it possible for lenders to do business faster, so they can fund more construction that creates better homes for real people.
- Test-driven development (TDD)
- A passion for making things and solving problems.
About our Company
We're a small team that works great together. Our office is a very relaxed environment, but we keep a tight focus on doing high quality work. We're located at Venturef0rth, a great co-working space in Philadelphia, PA. We have our own office with a door that closes, so we can program in peace and quiet.
At Lacoda, we're passionate about Python. We're building our product entirely with Python on the server side, and we're making as many open source contributions as possible along the way. We're using Pyramid for our web framework; we like Pyramid because it has a more functional style than Flask, and it's more flexible than Django. We use PostgreSQL with SQLAlchemy for persistent data.
We're meticulous about test-driven development. TDD just feels right; by writing tests, you refine the purpose of your code before your write it. TDD also makes refactoring a joy, and writing code should be joyful! Some argue that TDD is slow. In our experience, the more you do TDD, the faster it gets.
We're offering up to $140k annual salary, depending on experience. Benefits include fully paid health insurance (including dental & vision), a 401k plan, and generous vacation time. If you're interested in equity we can talk about that too, but we'd like to pay you a real salary -- we believe in actually paying people for great work!
