Python Developer - building APIs, PostgreSQL, django - start-up

Our client is an early stage, well funded, B2B tech start-up building a predictive investment platform at the top end of the real estate industry. The scientific challenge in such a data-heavy business focused on predicting prices and understanding the factors driving these prices is immense. Backed by one of the largest VCs in Europe they have big dreams and are rapidly growing!

On the back of a new round of funding they’re now looking for an ambitious Back-end Python Developer to work closely with Data Scientists and Data Engineers to help build the product.

We’re seeking an engineer with a good software engineering background, preferably with a significant focus on building APIs, scraping data and integrating with external APIs. Good experience with Python, django + PostgreSQL (or another RDBMS) experience is a prerequisite. Ideally you will also have experience with AWS (S3/EC2/ElasticBeanstalk) or Google Cloud.

Motivation and 'soft’ skills are really significant. You’ll be naturally skilled at taking on new ideas, very enthusiastic and energetic, an excellent team player who can independently take charge and crucially 'get things done’! You’ll be excited working in an early stage start-up and with a keen interest in tackling novel problems.

Excellent benefits - including high equity potential, flexible working, 5 weeks vacation
