Web Developer for Hire

We're pleased to announce that Caktus is looking for a developer to join our team on a contract basis!

What do we do? We build custom web applications for local and remote clients using a variety of open-source technologies. We are a small team founded in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area (currently residing in Carrboro Creative Coworking) who believe in face-to-face contact and employ agile development techniques that emphasize teamwork and collaboration.

We're looking for a strong software developer who enjoys working on a team and is excited to learn and experiment with new technologies. We do have a preference for local candidates, but will consider all submissions. Initial work will focus on maintaining small Django-powered websites. This will involve HTML/CSS (including converting Photoshop designs), Django Templates, and writing Unit Tests. Later work will involve creating and integrating Django apps into larger projects, deployment, and database work.

You will be working in Linux (Debian-flavor) production environments with Apache and WSGI. Python/Django experience is not required, but will be used on a daily basis. Relational database experience is a must. HTML/CSS and JavaScript experience are also a must, and jQuery is a plus.

If you're interested in this position, please send us your resume, some example code, links to any open-source projects you've contributed to, and expected compensation. We're excited to bring on a new team member!
