In your role, which reports to the Technical Director, you'll be working alongside our delivery teams in Europe and Latin America to maintain our existing software and systems, and help to manage our infrastructure; you will need to be a strong communicator in a technical environment.

You should have a solid understanding of Python, as well as experience with Django and Python dependency management with pip and/or Poetry. You should have knowledge of modern PaaS (for example Dokku, Heroku or Elastic Beanstalk). AWS experience would be an advantage.
