More information about this job

 

 

Toyota Connected is looking for a Python Software Engineer who will architect, design, develop, and participate in testing and documentation of large-scale, distributed software applications, systems and services for our Innovation team. The Innovation team is focused on creating products and services for next generation Connected vehicle systems and new team members are expected to be creative in solving problems, excited to work in new technology areas, and be ready to wear multiple hats to get things done. This is a highly-energized, fast-paced, and innovative startup environment; therefore, it is essential that not only the skillset, but also the personality matches such an environment

 

Responsibilities

 

  • Architect, design, and develop cutting edge technology solutions
  • Translate user stories and business requirements to technical solutions by building quick prototypes or proof of concepts with several business and technical stakeholder groups in both internal and external organizations
  • Partner with leaders in the area and have insights to select off the shelf components vs building from scratch
  • Convert proof of concepts to production-grade solutions that can scale for hundreds of thousands of users
  • Nurture and mentor technical team to develop solutions
  • Be hands-on and lead by following best practices in development and CI/CD methods
  • Operate in a highly-iterative Agile development environment and deliver significant functionality every week
  • Work collaboratively in a diverse environment
  • Own delivery of features from top to bottom, from concept to code to production
  • Develop tools and libraries that will enable rapid and scalable development in the future
  • Work closely with product owners to shape and deliver features to customers

 

Qualifications

  • You're smart and can demonstrate it
  • You want to make things work. Coming up with creative solutions comes naturally to you and you're comfortable being set loose without a lot of direction
  • Experience as a Software Developer for high-tech products or services
  • Strong production experience with Python
  • Expertise in implementing microservices (Flask, Nameko, Django, etc)
  • Experience with RabbitMQ, ActiveMQ, Kafka, etc
  • We think the knowledge acquired earning an BS in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or a related field would be of great value in this position, but if you're smart and have the experience that backs up your abilities, for us, talent trumps degree every time

 

 

We offer

  • Money (We pay well and we reward excellence)
  • An environment of A-players. We're careful about who we hire because we find that people who are at the top of their field like working around others who know what they're doing
  • Freedom to work with modern technologies in a greenfield environment. We care that you get your work done, but you will get to help decide on how we can leverage modern technologies to solve our challenges
  • Unlimited time off. No one is tracking your time here. You'll be treated like the professional we know you are and left to manage your own time and work load
  • Four months of parental leave. We want new moms and dads to have an opportunity to tend to their new or growing family
  • Nice perks like 401(k) with generous company match, gym memberships, Toyota vehicle discounts, game rooms, free food, dog friendly environment, team activities and happy hours
