Python/Django Freelancer

Are you an experienced Python/Django developer and have contributed your expertise as a professional freelancer to a variety of projects? Then maybe we might be a good fit as we are looking for talented professionals to extend our network of freelancers.

Start: We currently have no vacancy, but are always interested in extending our network of freelancers. Start according to mutual agreement.

Divio offers world-class services and tools that empower agencies, developers and organisations to build highly valuable and sustainable online presences and experiences. Launched in 2001, the company is today located in Zürich and has offices in Kiev (UA), New York (USA) and Cardiff (UK).

Divio has placed Django software in the hands of thousands of users across the world, through the open-source django CMS and Aldryn Cloud platform.

Is it your dream to join a team of talented people, working on new ideas and approaches for cloud-based services and web products, in a fast-paced environment? Wonderful!

Meaningful, satisfying work

You are passionate about developing websites and applications in Python/Django and about the idea of working with our team for a few weeks up to a longer period.
