  • After the intro call, there will be a technical take-home test and then an onsite with 2-3 technical interviews, each around 45 minutes.
  • Once the interviews are over, the team will meet to discuss several roles and candidates and may be asked one or two follow-up questions over email or a quick call or go directly to make an offer.

About Reflex

Reflex is an open-source framework to build web apps in pure Python and deploy them with a single command. This can be anything from a small data science/internal app to a large multi-page web app.

We launched in December and have seen rapid adoption of our open-source framework, with over 14K GitHub Stars and 8500 users on the waitlist for our hosting service. In parallel with improving our open-source framework, we are now working on a hosting service so users can quickly deploy and scale their apps. We have raised 5M in seed funding in August led by Lux Capital with some fantastic founders as angel investors.
