Python payment processing Developer


The Long Now Foundation is looking for a Python programmer, familiar 
with Paypal's Payflow Pro (recurring) billing module and both it's 
client side SDK and HTTP Interface API. We are looking to integrate 
membership functionality into our new Django-based web site; allowing 
users to signup for a recurring charge membership. Most internal 
functionality (for auth, users, profile, messaging) is written. You will 
be in charge of creating, in Python, the bits that interact with Payflow 
Pro Gateway through their HTTP Interface API. Creating, Polling, 
Updating paypal-bound profiles. You will need to write the error 
handling, retry logic and all other functionality surrounding Payflow 
Pro interaction since the HTTP Interface does not include it.

Ideally the candidate would be local to the San Francisco Bay Area, but 
we are willing to consider candidates anywhere in the PST time zone. The 
candidate should have past experience with recurring credit card 
transaction systems, and be available for ongoing support after the 
development process. We are looking to develop a long-term relationship.
