We've just announced a Series B raise - https://techcrunch.com/2016/06/30/festicket-let-it...

Never mind Brexit. We have cash and the willingness to spend it on highly skilled staff and we already sponsor the visas of our staff whenever we need to.


We are looking for mid-senior level developers who specialise in the Django framework (Flask specialising applicants may also be considered).

Daily tasks will involve:

  • Writing production code.
  • Code reviews.
  • Sprint meetings.
  • Fixing legacy code.
  • Bug fixes.
  • Remote server maintenance.
  • We've just had a big funding round and now we need to overhaul our technology to meet the business's ambitions for the next 5 years.

    Our Development team is currently 8 and we are looking to double in size over the next 6 months. To do this we need your dedication to get work done on time, to train new staff and integrate many new team members into this rapidly growing team while working with the other mid-senior developers to ensure that standards stay high and keep getting higher.




    We work incrementally but do occasionally take on bigger projects to update our stack and offering. Our current methodology is agile kanban but we are open to other agile methodologies and are looking at the tribal model (https://labs.spotify.com/2014/03/27/spotify-engine...) as the basis of our long term work.
