Python / Django Developer - Design + Build - London

Python / Django Developer - Design + Build - London

£45 to £55k + bonus

My client, a leading design thinking consultancy with a digital heritage is looking a Senior Python / Django Developer : Design + Build to join their growing team, reporting to the Technical Director.


They are looking for a senior back-end developer who specialises in Python and Django to join their growing company in a fast-paced, ever-evolving environment.

They want someone who can come in and hit the ground running and get stuck in.

They need someone with passion and drive to help them move towards their goals as a team and as a company.
You will work with the design, UX and front-end teams to deliver projects big and small, covering big web builds, CMSs, web apps and more.

You will get to work with the latest and greatest technology stack and they will provide the tools for you to do so.

You are encouraged to be pro-active and contribute, produce ideas and get stuck in to other parts of the project too; design not quite fit for purpose? Front-end solution not adequate enough? Everyone in the project is responsible for the work they do and they want everyone to be proud of what they put into the world.
You will split your time (80/20%) between hands-on project work and helping the team with mentoring, QA, oversight and some management responsibilities (these can be discussed to suit you).

You will work collaboratively with the ops and front-end leads as well as the wider company to further the company's goals.

Being a team lead you will also participate in discovery sessions with clients and become part of the group of internal experts that supports the sales process by contributing to proposals and pitches.

Who are they looking for

You have great knowledge and understanding of Python and Django
You have experience of working with different CMSs and wrangling with their limitations and pitfalls
You have experience of working with REST APIs
You consider maintainability, security and scalability from the offset
You are opinionated and responsible for delivering best practices and processes within the team
You believe in the benefits of test driven development (preach it!)
