Full Stack Developer

We are looking for an experienced full-stack developer to work with our client’s e-commerce business. The ideal candidate would have experience working with large Python codebases. We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and is able to work with a team, plan and identify requirements, develop features through to completion, and collaborate with teammates along the way.


About thelab

We’re an agency of makers with deep expertise in solving creative and

technology challenges. Our focus is on making better work to help brands work better. From branding & design, to software builds, large-scale ecommerce or anything in between, thelab mixes inspiration and hard work to produce results that mean business. Oh, and we host a mean barbecue too


We will be

An awesome place for you to grow and learn. We stay open-minded about ideas and make sure our technology is always up-to-date, because we believe the best work gets made when we evolve our skills together. thelab is large enough to get an amazing variety of work, but small enough to stay flexible and work with smaller brands and startups too—we even have a few products of our own.

What our interview process looks like:

  1. We’ll schedule an initial phone interview so we can get to know you, answer any questions you may have, and see if we might be a good fit for you and vice versa.
  2.  From there, we’d want to bring you in for a second-round interview and would email you details about a general architectural problem beforehand.
  3.  At the second round interview, we’re looking to understand your thinking process—not your knowledge of algorithms. That’s why we won’t be asking you to do whiteboard problems, but instead, we’ll ask you to explain your high-level approach to the architectural problem we shared, articulating it to both an experienced and junior dev.

You are

  • - A team player who thrives in a collaborative environment
  • - Not afraid to fail and always looking to learn from those failures
  • - Able to understand different approaches and comfortable learning/using both newer and older tech when it’s a better fit

You know

  • - Python for back-end web development
  • - Django
  • - Modern Javascript for front-end web development
  • - Typescript
  • - React + Redux
  • - AWS
  • - Comfortable sharing code between projects with open source and private modules
  • - Best practices like git-flow and test-driven development

Nice to haves (Not required)

  • - Experience working in open source community and contributing changes
  • - Experience in e-commerce
  • - Familiarity with django-oscar and/or django-wagtail
  • - Experience with Docker
  • - Experience with dev tools like terraform or ansible
