In this position you will have the opportunity to sharpen both frontend and backend skills as we build a robust platform in the Django framework. Strong candidates will be able to demonstrate their ability to think like a developer and execute ideas according to common coding best practices.

- Familiarity with core Django concepts, including but not limited to: models, views (both function-based and class-based), URL routing, templates, and Django admin.
- Familiarity with unit and user testing.
