Skills Required

Ideally, you’ll be an Agile-aware developer with experience of API development coupled with experience of a language commonly used in a back-end web app (Python, Ruby, Scala, Clojure), and flexibility in different programming paradigms (Object Orientated, Functional Programming).

You will also understand the importance of infrastructure as code.

You will be joining a collaborative team that try to work cross-functionally as much as they can.

Most Valuable Skills

The backend consists of a number of Python web services talking to one another over HTTP. We serve data to an Angular frontend. The ability to work incredibly closely with the frontend team is an especially important aspect of this role – our best successes have come from working as closely as possible with frontend and product ownership to build end-to-end applications which fulfil the needs of the business. We are keen on static type-checking in our code and tend to favour functions over classes.

The Lead Python Developer role represents a unique opportunity for someone who is open and honest and willing to learn.
