We have the opportunity available for a Python Developer to be one of the first employees of a rapidly growing start-up who are genuinely changing how an industry works.

This is a chance to have real impact in a fast growing organisation where you will provide suggestions on how to solve issues in a cleaner, smarter, simpler or more flexible way based on your experience. Whilst reporting to the CTO, you will ensure delivery of all services written in Python. Your primary responsibility will be to design and develop the microservices powering the platform and to coordinate with the rest of the team working on different layers of the infrastructure.

Given the very early stage of the new architecture they are building, you will have significant influence over the processes, tools and design decisions ranging from the development of their CI/CD pipelines to the use of Machine Learning, Big Data pipeline etc. A commitment to collaborative problem solving and product quality is essential.

  • Excellent understanding of Service Oriented Architecture and Microservices
  • Commercial knowledge of Docker, Kubernetes or other relevant containers
  • Strong understanding of AWS
  • Good knowledge of HTTP, Caching and RESTful API design
  • Knowledge of statistical algorthims and/or machine learning is a distinct plus
  • Ideally you want to be part of a start-up/dotcom tech culture

You can expect to work on some challenging projects from day 1 & gain exposure to a number of new emerging technology like ElasticSearch, NumPy, TensorFlow, Keras, Kubernetes & React Native. You will have access to the latest tools, training & kit. Great London office in a buzzing environment with an excellent funding scope which has the freedom to be experimental with technology & the opportunity to rapidly grow the team.
