Full Time

Python Developer required by a unique tech start-up in Manchester who are going from strength to strength on the back of a stellar 2016.

The Company:

A truly unique tech start-up who after a breakout year in 2016 are looking to add a Head of R&D to help them head up their Machine Learning offering.

Headed up by some of the brightest minds in the UK, they have developed what in my opinion could be one of the biggest tech disruptors in recent memory.

Due to its almost universal applicability, the sky is the limit for this team and with you coming in as a senior member of the team, you will have the chance to really make your mark from day one.

The Role:

This is a key position for the organisation as you'll come in and work very closely with the CTO and the Head of Development. As a Software Engineer, you will be playing a key role in delivering high level technical solutions as well as providing a helping hand in shaping the overall technical strategy of the company.

You will be delivering a world-class, robust cloud based platform, which is the basis for their entire tech capability. However, you'll also be involved in the direct delivery of customer projects which focus on their key offering of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

Tech Stack / Qualifications:

To be successful in this role and in order to fit in with the rest of the team, it is likely you will hold a PhD or MSc ideally in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Analytics or equivalent subject.

From a technical point of view, you should be comfortable with most of the following:

** Software Engineering - Python, ideally with solid Django experience, however, other frameworks such Flask, TurboGears or Pyramid

** NoSQL database experience, for example: PostgreSQL / MySQL / NoSQL

** Test Driven Development - TDD

** Object Orientated Programming - at the very least have a strong understanding of the core principles and ideally you'll have worked in an OO environment

** Data Science, any interest or previous experience in the following would be advantageous but certainly not essential - Machine Learning / Deep Learning / Neural Networks / Computer Vision / SLAM

** PhD / MSc level

This is a rare opportunity to join a company who are going through their most exciting period in their short history to date. You will be working closely with a team of first class professionals who are really pushing the proverbial envelope.
