Spanflug is a Munich-based start-up operating an online-platform for custom manufactured parts. The core of our technology is our calculation pipeline that allows us to analyse CAD-models and estimate the manufacturing costs of a part. In our Online-Shop the customer can upload the CAD-model of the part they want to have manufactured and our algorithm calculates an instant price quote. The customer can then order the part immediately. After accepting the order, we match it to the most suited supplier in our network. Using the same underlying technology, we also offer a SaaS calculation tool for manufacturers in order to automate their quoting process. Manufacturers can configure the algorithm to use their machine parameters in order to instantly calculate price quotes customised to their needs. **Description** We are looking for an experienced, pragmatic and conscientious senior software engineer with experience in Python, web-applications and distributed systems to take on a technical leadership role in our small web-platform team. The responsibilities of the web-platform team are extremely diverse and include among others designing the software-architecture, developing specific customer-facing features, automating our own internal processes, integrating external services, designing APIs, and dev-ops activities in order to ensure smooth deployments and reliable service. Our web-stack currently includes the following technologies: * React.js / Redux / Semantic UI * Flask * PostgreSQL * Redis * Docker Our web-team works in close collaboration with our algorithm and marketing/sales/operations teams and is therefore involved in the full product lifecycle. We work in very short product iteration cycles based on a GitHub-workflow so that contributions will usually be deployed immediately after completion. As a senior software engineer, you will be responsible for expanding the capabilities of the Spanflug web-platform and evolving the software architecture and the technical underpinnings of the system, while ensuring a high software quality and minimising technical debt. Your work will therefore have a large impact on our product and high visibility in our company and among our users.
