Job Description

Potato is looking for a Python-loving Backend Engineer to join our digital product studio in San Francisco, supporting and developing our progressive and talented team of designers, product leads, and delivery team.
Interested in building digital products and services for some of the biggest brands on the planet? We can’t wait to hear from you!

About the role
As an Engineer, your main focus will be project work. You'll work closely with designers, delivery leads, product leads, and with guidance and mentoring from other members of the Engineering team. You will be assigned a representative from the Engineering team to aid your progression and help you move forward with your career at Potato.
You'll join one of our friendly, supportive, proactive Agile product teams. Our teams are self-organizing, with the freedom to define their own ways of working.
At Potato, we like to pick the right tool for the job. Our go-to backend stack is Python3 (usually Fast-API or Flask), golang, or node running on Google’s scalable App Engine serverless platform. But we’re not married to that, and have experience in other languages (e.g. Ruby, JavaScript) and platforms (e.g. AWS, Heroku). We aim to strike a balance between leveraging our existing strengths and exploring new tech. While this listing focusses on Python, we try to avoid silos: our developers are encouraged to contribute to any part of a system they’d like to.
Lastly, we know the data. When applying for jobs, many women and non-binary folks feel they need to meet 100% of the criteria while men usually apply after meeting about 60%. If you think you'll be a good fit, please apply. We'd love to hear from you.
And to anyone working from home: kids, pets, and other cohabitators in the background are welcome!

  • Writing clean, easy to read, and maintainable code
  • Finding creative solutions to technical problems and user needs, whilst also finding opportunities to optimize and simplify software
  • Striking the right balance between perfection and delivery
  • Working in a friendly, self-organizing, cross-functional, Agile product team
  • Supporting other Engineers within the team
  • Collaborating closely with other disciplines such as design and product
  • Regularly working together with multiple clients and client engineers

About you

You're someone who writes great code, but also enjoys collaborating with other disciplines in the product team to devise creative solutions to the users’ needs. You have an appreciation of the full web stack, as well as an appreciation of current trends in both backend and frontend web technologies. You have experience with modern web frameworks (but that's a plus, not mandatory)

Your experience and skills
You must have:

  • Experience building for the web using Python.
  • Experience using modern development tools (e.g. Git, GitLab or GitHub etc.) within a development team.
  • Excellent teamwork, and written and verbal communication skills.

Ideally, also:

  • Experience with backend Python frameworks such as Django, Flask or FastAPI.
  • Experience launching high-quality digital products.
  • Experience with Google App Engine or a similar PaaS.
  • An understanding of security vulnerabilities and how to prevent them.
  • An understanding of both relational and non-relational databases.
  • Experience creating secure and well-designed APIs.
  • Experience building for scale: high traffic, big data, large feature sets.
  • Front-end web or native app development skills.
  • Knowledge of testing, QA tools and methodologies.
  • Familiarity with Agile methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban.


Working shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best coaches, designers and product leads in town, we’ll give you the freedom to manage your own work and trust you to get things done. Do you have caregiving responsibilities? Take care of that. Need a mid-day run or stretch? All good. Ultimately, we work to ensure you have the flexibility and resources you need to help us build the best products possible.

You’ll have many opportunities for growth and learning: collaboration within teams, rotation to different products, experimentation on internal tools, involvement in new business and pitching, our Potato Talks events, mentorship, training courses, and conferences.


  • 401(k) plan with employer matching
  • Comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance (for our transgender colleagues, plans include coverage for gender affirmation surgery, behavioral health, and hormone therapy)
  • Employee assistance program
  • Wellness program
  • Uncounted leave (within reason)
  • 12+ weeks of fully-paid parental leave
  • Company-paid life insurance
  • Flexible working
  • AD&D and disability insurance
  • Commuter benefits
  • Birthday off
  • Volunteering days
  • Extended winter holiday closure


  • Free lunch every day (even while remote!)
  • Snacks and drinks (in the office)
  • Social events
  • $1200 to set up your remote workspace (exclusively for non-SFBA teammates)
  • $3000/year in professional development funds
  • $150/month gym and wellness reimbursement
  • $80/month data plan reimbursement
  • Company-issued phone or tablet of your choice
