You understand how to write Pythonic code that is clean, maintainable — yet solves complex problems.
Talking about Locks, Mutexes, and Semaphores doesn’t make your brain hurt — as you will be working on distributed systems problems.
You have your own way of making mental models of complex systems. We have an incredibly distributed team, so having a model of what you are trying to accomplish and getting that through on the phone is crucial to your success here.
You have some solid Linux skills, not to perform Systems Administration but you know when to use grep versus having to write a program.
If you have little Python/Django experience but you’ve made the switch from/to programming language/framework many times in the past, awesome!
