About the position

Styler Inc is a Tokyo-based startup that is hiring Python developers. Their main product is Facy, which helps offline stores set up an online storefront.

Though the company started with the domestic market, they're already expanding overseas, and at the beginning of this year announced their expansion into Taiwan. As part of their goal to have a truly global product, they're looking to add international developers to their team. No Japanese is needed, but they prefer candidates already based in Japan (so you're going to need to prove you're an exceptional match if you don't already live here).

At Styler, developers don't just write code to a spec, but rather they work closely with the product manager and designers throughout the entire development process. You'll be involved in the initial planning and creation of user stories onwards, and you'll get to decide what you want to work on and how you want to implement it.

Styler puts an emphasis on code quality. All production code either goes through a code review process, or is written using pair programming. Code is refactored as new code is added, so you'll do it on a regular basis. All code is also tested automatically, and they've put in place tools to assess code quality.

Their standard working day is 10:00am to 7:00pm, but they offer flextime with core time of 1pm to 5pm. You also have the option of working remotely on days when you don't have meetings (so you'll still need to regularly come to the office). The salary for this position ranges from ¥5 million to ¥9 million annually.

Requirements

  • Web application development experience using a framework (e.g. Django, Ruby on Rails, etc)
  • Cloud computing platform experience (GCP, AWS, etc)
  • Automated testing experience
  • Conversational Japanese language ability

Nice to haves

  • Web frontend (JavaScript, HTML, CSS) experience
  • NoSQL experience
  • Experience developing for high traffic applications
  • Microservice experience
  • Multi-region application experience
  • A deep understanding of security
  • Agile development experience
  • Open source contributions
