Small startup looking to grow tech team from (currently just one dev). We're building a Django-based (1.4) site where users can offer services online, based on categories, geographical location, etc. There's a lot of interaction with Facebook, and there will also be payment processing involved.

- Searching site content and refining results via AJAX, lazy-loading (this is mostly done)
- Users can post their services
- Users can create a Page (like facebook page)

- Lots of integration with Facebook, including login on the site
- Create a Facebook app

- Implementing timepickers, date+time range widgets with validation (e.g. 'to' can't be on/before 'from')
- Real-time validation of forms
- Absolutely must have experience working with templating languages, and making minor changes if needed (anything major to be handled by the back-end dev)
- experience with Django templates is a plus
- Tons of experience with HTML/CSS is a must
- Must have some familiarity with the HTML5 spec
- Comfortable working with PSDs, slicing the occasional image (e.g. a close icon that may have been missed by the designer)
- Be prepared to use Adobe Photoshop if GIMP isn't rendering the designer's PSDs correctly, please.
- Comfortable using Git as is required for this role,
- Using the Github issue tracker to create issues, updating issues, etc.
- Python experience is of course a huge plus
- Other pluses:

- any Amazon EC2, ELB or EBS experience
---> Frontend design task may include:

- Able to design attractive pages with good UX.
