Are you a talented Python developer who wants to take a leading role in transforming the real estate market? You'll have a chance to do that at Virdi.no - an enterprise start-up in the Norwegian real estate industry. 

About Virdi

VIRDI is a company exclusively focused on building the consumer service virdi.no - Norway's only independent housing service by and for consumers. The goal of Virdi is to give private individuals the same opportunities as professionals have in the housing market.
Virdi.no is a platform where users can list their properties. It has over 100k monthly visitors, which gives homeowners exposure to a big crowd of potential buyers. The major difference between Virdi.no and the ordinary property listing board is that Virdi.no uses AI & Machine Learning to provide insights for both owners and buyers plus all properties are listed on a map. This helps set a fair price based on transactions in the market, but also other important aspects – like proximity to POIs (schools, bus/metro stations, office areas, etc.). 
Together with Virdi.no you can change the housing market for the better 🔥

WITH VIRDI YOU HAVE A STAR TEAM BEHIND YOU

As a Python developer at Virdi, you will join a small & experienced team of passionate developers where you will be responsible for new features and fixing existing issues (80/20 split). Let's be honest, some of their code is less than ideal and they need help in improving it, so one of the focus areas for a new person will be improving automated tests coverage.
They are running on Python 3.8, Angular 8. Github + Jenkins as CI, Amazon Container Service – docker as a service. Postgres database, a little bit of ElasticSearch. They use a lot of gradient boosting from the ML perspective.
