London, United Kingdom

Django Developer (Remote)

London, UK. REMOTE okay, but bonus points if you can get to London sometimes.

Wildfish - http://wildfish.com

We're a London based consultancy who work exclusively with Django.

We're looking for a full stack developer to join us, initially on a freelance basis. Primarily you'll be working on our client sites maintaining and developing Django web applications and mobile APIs, but also working on some of our own products and open source work.

Everyone in our organisation is a developer, all of us working remotely, although it's handy if you're within distance of London for meetings occasionally. We're ideally looking for someone in the UK, but will possibly consider someone overseas with excellent English in a similar timezone if we can't find someone in the UK.

Some of the things we use, which it would be good for you to know some of:

Python/Django [Essential]

HTML/CSS/Javascript [Essential]

Twitter Bootstrap

React / React Native

PostgreSQL

Ubuntu Linux Server Admin

Docker

AWS, GCE

The most important thing is that you must be passionate about your craft, and eager to share and learn with others who feel the same.

You'll need to be able to work autonomously, so it's important that you're the sort of person who has attention to detail and can be self motivated.

Please email work@wildfish.com, including the salary or rate you're looking for, along with a list of 3 Django apps you like to use in projects, and a link to any code you have available online.

Thanks :)
