Python Developer - Backend / Full Stack, Git, TDD, open source, unit testing (RG7)

Weighty opportunity for a hard core Python programmer to join a strongly growing, well funded tech company established in 2008.

The role will appeal to an experienced back-end / Full stack Python Software Developer absolutely at the top of their game, with a deep and broad knowledge of multiple programming languages and who is excited by the chance to make their mark alongside a small team of incredibly smart 'techie’ developers.

Specifically you will have much of the following:

  • Excellence in modern Python; they rely on Twisted, SQLAlchemy, Celery
  • The ability to analyse new open source libraries and refactor code to suit
  • A strong knowledge of network protocols, in particular creating lightweight proxies for credential injection and session recording
  • Knowledge of when to use an existing library (they use 280 open source libraries) and when to code one from scratch
  • A strong sense of security, encryption, and what makes code resilient against attack
  • A good understanding of a WireShark trace
  • Belief in unit testing - nose, py.test, unittest2
  • Good database optimisation skills
  • The ability to switch programming languages at ease
  • Working knowledge of esoteric programming languages
  • Knowledge of the architecture of Linux, Windows, MacOSX and network devices
