Who we're looking for
We're looking for experienced developers with Python/Django experience. The person that will thrive in this role is someone who is happy to learn quickly, pays attention to the nitty gritty details, and can handle a fast paced environment. As a developer you have great empathy for the users of your products and care to craft maintainable code. We have 3 Senior Developer Roles plus multiple Mid Level Developer positions available. We have been very busy last year building a team of 15+ people and we need a few more colleagues to strengthen the team!
In this role, you’ll be liaising with clients if the need arises. You’ll be working closely with the Tech Lead and a small team to start with so great communication skills are a must. If you’re an over communicator, even better.

We believe that great people can always find a place. People do their best work when they can be themselves. We never discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status or disability status.*
