THE ROLE

We are looking for a mid-level developer who specialises in Python and has a passion for building great products with solid engineering practices using the latest technologies.

You would be working as a backend developer within one of our product focussed teams, working closely with other backend developers, frontend developers, QA engineers and the teamโ€™s product manager to deliver changes and new functionality. You would be involved in planning new work and helping the product manager decide what the team should be working on to achieve the teamโ€™s goals.

You would also be working on technical tasks to improve our backend application architecture for performance, scalability and robustness while making use of the latest technologies, reducing complexity and making development easier.

YOUR ATTITUDE

Youโ€™re someone whoโ€™s smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and youโ€™re not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone elseโ€™s of course). Youโ€™re constantly thinking โ€œhow can we do this better?โ€.

THE STACK

Our backend application is built in Python 3 using the Django web framework, we use Django Rest Framework for our APIs and Celery for asynchronous tasks. We use Docker in development and production, all built from our CI service with AWS ECS as our orchestration system. We have tools to manage building and deploying staging environments via Slack and automate JIRA away so you almost don't notice itโ€™s there.

METHODOLOGY

We like to build fast, scalable, easily maintained and dynamic applications using the latest and greatest tools and technologies available. Most of all, we like to deliver! We believe in manageable chunks of work with continuous integration and delivery to enable multiple production releases per day, so that weโ€™re always making progress.
