About Us

We are a mature Digital agency (13 years!) and we build websites and web based applications almost exclusively in Django.

Our clients come from a wide range of sectors, and all expect the very best service from us.

We are committed to only hiring the best people, and in return we offer a flexible working relationship, in a nice office environment, with the usual perks such as away days.

We try not to fall into agency cliches, and we also try and avoid bullsh*t in all our work and our communications. Hence no ‘Ninja rockstar developer’ job title.

About You

You will need to be able to work quickly and proficiently with Django and Python.

You will also be committed to best practices, have good DevOps capabilities, and be able to work as part of a team. A passion for open source technology is essential, and ideally you will have experiencing in open-sourcing your own code.

Although generally you will not be dealing with clients on a day-to-day basis, we do ask that you are able to talk to clients when necessary.

Ideally you will be Bristol / South-West based, but a strong candidate in London will be considered.

You’ll also have your own interests that we’d like you to share with the team. Ideas for our days out, new business venture proposals (no matter what field or industry), improvements to our office, new tech talks, etc - all welcome.


The Work Involved

The role will largely see you focused on back-end development in Python and Django, but you will also have to support the agency’s DevOps setup, and our enterprise search servers (Elastic).

Specifically, the work will involve, but will not be exclusive to:

  • Building sites in Django 
  • Integrating HTML flats prepared by our template designer / frontend developer
  • Continuous integration
  • Testing - unit and function testing, as well as maintenance of our CI server
  • DevOps
  • Any training for new or existing staff in back-end technologies
  • Research and development of new systems


Contact

To apply, please email jobs@omni-digital.co.uk with a one page C.V.
