Software Engineer –

New Mobile Web Ereading Development

We're looking for a Python software engineer who cares about building meaningful applications that enrich the personal and professional lives of our customers. Our products are found in libraries, startups, classrooms, and corporations, and help technologists learn, share knowledge, and succeed in their careers.

Our development stack is Python/Django, Backbone.js/RequireJS/jQuery, Redis, Git, and Postgres. HTML5 isn't a buzzword for us: we were one of the first companies to develop a fully-baked offline HTML5 commercial webapp, and we're continuing to innovate in the browser.

We have a dedication to testing (Nose, QUnit, Selenium), a strong IT and data warehouse group, and a core belief in work-life balance. We respectfully welcome both vim and emacs users.

Our core team is distributed but concentrated in our Boston Seaport and San Francisco offices. The women and men in our engineering group are life-long learners who encourage collaboration and innovation. This position reports to the VP of Engineering, and can be located at our Boston or San Francisco offices, although US-based remote candidates will also be considered.

Safari encourages all of its staff at any skill level to contribute to our technical blog. See what our developers, project managers, and designers care about most at
