We are currently looking to add a remote Python web developer to one of our teams rewriting our existing software products from scratch. You will work on a team which is responsible for developing the entire application stack, requiring you to collaborate with other team members to solve problems and design systems that meet the specified requirements.

This application is being written using Python Flask based services that rely on NoSQL databases such as HBase and a React based front end for end users.
