Django, python’s high-level backend framework, is hassle-free and highly scalable making it the most popular server-side framework. Experienced web developers seek Django to strike the right balance between the rapid development of applications and create secure sites avoiding the common security errors.

Django provides developers with fully loaded packages to build the sites from conception to launch as quickly as possible without the need to develop them from the ground up. Its fully-equipped toolkit, simple code structure, and customizable architecture give shape and pace to web applications to promote rapid development.

With fast-hitting deadlines and the need to satisfy the tough requirements of the web, remote Django developers are highly regarded in the technical field to develop pragmatic and clean code to enable maintainable websites. This subsequently led to the rise in demand for remote Django developer jobs.

Hence, enterprises and government agencies to organizations, and tech startups, use this web framework to create their own social network platforms, CMS, and even scientific computing platforms. In fact, some of the world’s most renowned apps such as Instagram, YouTube, Mozilla, Spotify, and more are built on Django. So it is a safe bet to say that the future and range of Django is bright.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Python/Django developer?

While the Django framework comes with a whole array of functionalities and features, it is up to the Django developers to build a wide range of web projects by preventing the common security risks of SQL injection, cross-site scripting, or clickjacking. Furthermore, Django’s CSS integration and user authentication system bodes well for the developers to seamlessly handle various web development tasks such as user authentication, site maps unique to their project. A successful Django developer must build websites along with optimizing data algorithms and solving data analytics problems.

  • Develop a server-side logic to improve responsiveness to the requests from the front end
  • Manage the data interchanging between the server and the users.
  • Design and implement low-latency and performance efficient web applications
  • Create RESTful APIs for internal consumption

How to become a Python/Django developer?

In order to pursue a career in the field of Django development, one must be mindful of all the technical and educational requirements.

Skills required to become a Python/Django developer

Both Python and Django are widely used languages used to develop the back-end of an application and in other areas such as data science and automation. Needless to say, to apply for Python/Django developer jobs, it is necessary on your part to acquire these skills to significantly expand your competence.

  1. 1. System Programming in Python

    Python’s inbuilt interfaces and the extensive library of OS services make it the right tool to develop system administration utilities, create portable applications, find directories and files. This open-source language even allows you to use multiple threads and processes to perform parallel computation or run other programs.

  2. 2. ORM Libraries

    Object Relational Mappers or ORMS are clusters of libraries that allow transferring of data relational databases to python objects. Django developers use these libraries to make the required changes in the stored databases using Python code. These mapper libraries can save you a significant amount of time in development and allow you to seamlessly switch between relational databases.

  3. 3. Graphical User Interface

    The scalability and high-speed development of python make it ideal for the creation of Graphical User Interface. Python offers various tools for developing GUIs, such as the Tkinter toolkit. Tkinter is the fastest and easiest way to create GUI applications. Hence it is essential to get familiar with Python tools to apply for remote Django developer jobs.

  4. 4. Version Control

    During the development phase, every software project undergoes tons of changes. With Version Control, you can track all the changes and have complete traceability. As the process gets complex, the need to manage multiple versions of the code rises. This is where Version Control comes into play. The VC system allows multiple users to work on the same project and facilitates collaboration across teams. It has high significance in software configuration management making it an essential skill for a Django developer.

  5. 5. RESTful APIs

    RESTful APIs or Representational State Transfer provides the developer with the flexibility to build an API to meet the company’s needs as well as its customers. It has emerged as the most common method for developers to connect components and applications in the architecture to simplify network communication. A thorough understanding of the RESTful services could prove beneficial for the project requirements.
