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.

YOUR ROLE

We are looking for senior developers who specialise in Python and have some exposure to the Django framework (Flask applicants will also be considered). Ideally you already have team lead experience.

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.

We are a team of 9 looking to double in size over the next 6 months so we need a couple more team leaders. 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.
