Local Startup need a Python Developer - 303

Posted 2 years ago in Information Technology

Lionce is currently recruiting for a Python Developer for a great opportunity with one of our partners in Pittsburgh, PA. This is a full time position with a pay rate up to $65,000 a year. For this particular role, our client is only considering either US Citizens or Permanent Residents (either EAD or Green Card).

The client is looking for a talented Python developer as it expands its development efforts from its offices in Downtown Pittsburgh. You would own the majority of day-to-day coding for the backend systems that power the client’s data-gathering systems under the supervision of the client's Lead Developer and/or our Founder/CEO. Your primary responsibility will be to improve, update, and expand the spider behind the client's website.

A strong understanding of Python, unstructured data, spidering and search, and database technology is a plus. If you do have search experience, please highlight this in your resume. You should also have experience with, or a strong desire to learn, Python (since you'll be coding in Python). No Python experiance is necessary, just a willingness to learn.

The client is a fast-paced, small, startup company. As the perfect candidate, you must thrive in unstructured environments where deadlines and product requirements change frequently. The client works long hours and has lots of fun doing it.

Feel free to send over some examples of your code or to write something to send along with your application.


  • Work with our development team to make our spider more awesome.
  • Update and maintain spidering systems on an ongoing basis.
  • Be a critical voice in the direction of the product and implement company strategy into the user experience


  • Python
  • MySQL / PostgreSQL
  • 2 years or so of professional experience or equivalent project work that you can show us from your own hobbies or school assignments
  • Easy going and comfortable with ambiguity and lack of structure (and the occasional monkey flying across the room)
  • Familiarity with social networking platforms including Facebook (you've heard of Facebook, right?), Twitter, LinkedIn, and Blogs.
  • Passion for entrepreneurship

Even Better

  • PHP
  • Working knowledge of social network APIs
  • Experience using Git, or other version control systems.
  • Experience working with a startup.
  • Linux/Apache Server Administration
  • Knowledge of Amazon Web Services (S3, EC2, SQS, etc)


  • Competitive salary
  • Paid vacation
  • Health Insurance
  • Awesome working environment
