Mid - Senior Python Engineer

Chicago, Illinois
21 Sep 2022

Join a research center for a top University in a fully remote capacity. As a Lead Python Engineer, you'll provide expertise to the development of programs for activities relating to software support and development. In this role you'll be using Python to build Microservices/APIs within AWS and learn how to use Kinesis for streaming, and Airflow/Step Functions too!

The cool thing about this role is that your work will directly help researchers and scientists across the country advance Astronomy, Biology supporting COVID research, Genomics, High Energy Physics and much more! The great thing is that this research center is considered a startup under the University's umbrella so you'll be covered by their substantial benefits, but they operate fairly independently from the University so there's much less red-tape/bureaucracy. Best of both worlds! 


  • Minimum requirements include a college or university degree in related field.
  • Minimum requirements include knowledge and skills developed through 7+ years of work experience in a related job discipline.
  • Relevant software development experience, full cycle preferred, including design, coding, testing, and support.
  • Advanced programming skills using Python, Golang/Javascript, and other languages like C/C++, Java, or C#.
  • Knowledge of web applications, REST API, microservices, and containers.
  • Knowledge of Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, Spark, Hadoop, and data analysis.
  • Experience with cloud platforms (AWS, GCP, Openstack), CI/CD, and Agile methodologies.

Preferred Requirements:
  • Ability to work productively with all stakeholders and drive best practices, ensuring accountability for deliverables and outcomes.
  • Ability to take a broad plan and break it into incremental tasks, estimate the effort needed to complete them, and ensure the completion of each task, meeting the required level of quality.
  • Ability to prioritize and manage workload to meet critical project milestones and deadlines.
