Job Description

Python Engineer


High-Growth RPA Vendor


$160k - $180k basic + Equity


Chicago (flexible working schedule, in the office once a week)


Edge Tech is working exclusively with a heavily funded seed-stage, top-tier venture backed Robotic Process Automation (RPA) vendor who are defining a new category in the space. Their unique focus provides a new approach to RPA which allows companies of all sizes across the globe to leverage the power of automation. Our client designs, develops and deploys virtual workers on their cloud-based platform using an RPA-as-a-Service model so their customers don’t have the burden of having to manage, monitor or maintain this themselves.


Having recently closed a large round of funding they are looking to expand further with the appointment of a Python Engineer to join their growing software engineering team.


You’ll be responsible for leading the integration of our client’s core platform with software robots developed using Python. You will also be responsible for developing the core building blocks and utilities to lead and evolve their product vision. This role has unlimited potential to progress into a company leader as the team grows.

You will be expected to design, build, and maintain Python Libraries and Services used by our client’s automation engineers to integrate and log valuable insights into our digital workers. You’ll also help bridge the gap between automation engineering and platform engineering by owning end-to-end feature implementation.
