About the role

Gordian Software is hiring for Python Developer Interns. You will be in charge of one specific airline integration at a time and will be provided documentation, credentials, input/output formats and guidance.

This is a four month, salaried internship with a guaranteed interview for a full-time role at the outset. Interns who do not successfully complete the full-time interview will have the opportunity to continue their roles as hourly contractors.

We need someone with strong python skills and who is comfortable with SOAP, XML and JSON apis. Airline API documentation is not well done, so you will need to be self starting and be able to work through problems with autonomy. While integrating you will need to be able to pick up industry jargon at a fast pace and will need to think on your feet.

We are looking for someone with a lot of enthusiasm and a high work rate, constantly pushing the project forward. Ideally, we should constantly be the blocker because we can't keep up with your speed.



We base our requirements on our 3 core values: Freedom, Impact, Ownership

Freedom - You should be comfortable in fast paced and rapidly changing environments. You should be able to exercise autonomy rather than needing detailed direction. You will be working with a distributed team of engineers from all over the world.

Impact - This is a software engineering role. You should be capable of writing high quality code to integrate airline APIs. We value experience and aptitude over formal qualifications and education; our team ranges from self-taught hackers to computer science PhDs.

Ownership - You should be proactive and do whatever you think is necessary for the team to achieve our goal. If you want to avoid things that are “not my job”, this role is not a good fit.
