4 or more years of Python engineering experience, including familiarity with Python 3 (we use 2.7 and 3.6).
Fluency working with Django. You’ll have to maintain old Django 1.6 project (not actively developed, we’re just migrating legacy code piece by piece), and develop new ones in Django 1.11.
Some Go (Golang) knowledge. It is not required but is a plus. While almost everything we have is in Python, we also have a few small self-contained microservices written in Go, e.g. for thumbnail generation.
Familiarity with Docker, Docker Compose and Docker Swarm. Experience with other containerization and orchestration technologies is always a plus.
Experience working with PostgreSQL, Redis and ElasticSearch. Basic knowledge of their administration and maintenance — you don’t have to be a hardcore DBA, but you should know how to e.g. make backups or how to generally approach those to if something goes wrong.
Reasonable proficiency with GNU/Linux (we use Ubuntu Server) system administration.
Basic familiarity with blockchain-based cryptocurrency technologies is a plus. In particular it’s great if you already know how to run Ethereum node and interact with smart contracts.

EDU Ecosystem (LiveEdu) is a decentralized learning ecosystem that teaches people how to build complete products in future technological fields. We just closed Round I of the LiveEdu ICO with $10M, Round II will be $100M. We are building the YouTube for online education and professional development. You can also describe our ecosystem as the next-generation Lynda.com. Unlike existing online education platforms, LiveEdu is not focused on beginners, but mainly intermediates to experts. People learn on LiveEdu by watching how peers build real projects and can also download all project resources and files. The new LiveEdu platform is set to launch in 2018 and will start with eight main topics which encompasses several subcategories: Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Game Development, Data Science, Cryptocurrencies, Programming, Design, and Augmented and Virtual Reality. Project creators in the EDU Ecosystem will build 10,000 projects for these topics. In 2019, the ecosystem will be opened for all topics. For now we are an app blockchain company and using ERC20 smart contracts, but in 2021 we will build our own protocol. Simply put we are building the Steemit for professional development and targeting the $306 billion professional development market. Our beta product is accessible under www.liveedu.tv. Our ICO is accessible under tokensale.liveedu.tv.
