At DemocracyLab we are looking to optimizing the connection between tech-centric volunteers and tech-for-good project. The Software Back End Developer volunteer position will lead the technical effort to expand on the functionality of our web app (visit www.democracylab.org). We are a group of volunteer self-starters working autonomously at our own time, our own pace and are looking for similar candidates that share our passion for DemocracyLab's vision and mission.

Key Responsibilities :

  • Create software architecture that builds upon the existing back-end system architecture.
  • Lead the back-end team in its development efforts as the technical lead.
  • Use Python, Django, and PostgreSQL to build new back end features for the platform.
  • Attend weekly engineering standups, and collaborate with product, design and engineering teams to support the launch of new features and products.
  • Support junior engineers with onboarding and mentorship.
  • Develop documentation, and support ongoing efforts to build knowledge share programs to assist future volunteers.
