At TweetDeck we're trying to build the best tools and services to

TweetDeck functionality

strong desire to pick them up)
 - Flexibility and the desire to work with a small team of dedicated
coders in a startup environment

 - Python mastery
 - Knowledge of an asynchronous network framework like Twisted
 - Open source contributions, and a place to find them - e.g. a GitHub
or Bitbucket profile
 - Experience in deploying over cloud providers like AWS (EC2, SimpleDB, etc.)
 - Knowledge of distributed version control - preferably Git or Mercurial
 - Experience with Javascript & HTML/CSS to write great web apps and
internal tools
 - Knowledge of relational databases and SQL (we use those too!)
 - Some knowledge of NoSQL stores like Redis, Neo4j, MongoDB or Cassandra
 - Deep understanding of social networking services and trends

What Twisted is used for: All our backend systems are written in Python -
we use Twisted for our REST API services consumed by our desktop and mobile
clients, and Django for our web site.
