Wildfish London, United Kingdom

Django Developer

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 someone to join us. Primarily you'll be working on our client sites maintaining and developing new 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 the same time zone 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

I'm imagining we're looking for someone who has at least a year or two of Django experience and is eager to learn more.

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 without someone on your case.

Ideally we're looking for a permie but will consider freelance if we can't find someone suitable. Possible share options for the right person.

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 :)

Rock Kitchen Harris Leicester, United Kingdom

Python/Django full stack developer

Come and join a bunch of friendly clever folk that have been building high profile Django apps and websites for almost 10 years.


# WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We're looking for somebody (preferably onsite but possibly remote) that can jump into existing projects to help maintain and improve them but somebody that can also envision brand new projects from scratch.

We use agile to stay sane and deliver the best solutions for our clients. We use whatever tools and techniques get the job done in a way we can be proud of.

We have lots of fun but we don’t faff about.

The right person will tick these boxes and then some:

  • You’re experienced using Python and Django
    (we don’t measure experience in years - code quality and approach count for everything)
  • You’re a bit good with servers
    (you know your chmod from your rm, and you know how to pronounce PostgreSQL)
  • You understand that clever doesn't mean complex
    (and that lazy can be a good thing, but sloppy never is)
  • You can communicate clearly to non-techies
    (agile means working as part of a diverse team that are relying on you to explain things in plain English)
  • You can’t keep still
    
(you know the code we write today will probably suck in 12 months, and that’s ok so long as we learn from it)
  • You’ve got good taste
    (beauty comes in many forms and you need to be able to spot and embrace it - from a stunning app design to a clean and efficient function)


# WHAT'S ON OFFER?


  • Interesting and varied projects - large and small, scary and non-scary, to keep your brain and fingers active
  • Freedom and trust - use whatever software, tools, books, training, music, coffee, beer, wine and fresh air you need to get the job done
  • A nice computer - a shiny new Apple computer you can set up however you like (we draw the line at installing Windows though)
  • A great space - you’ll get a big desk in an airy office and a Lamp Budget to make it your own
  • Some cool new friends - our diverse team of 30 are regularly socialising - impromptu curry nights, pub lunches, go-karting, foosball, museum visits, letterpress, desk-delivered beer and more
  • Office bees - 30 people inside the office making money, 30,000 on the roof making honey
  • Firewatch - endless conversation about how great a game Firewatch is
  • A generous helping of cash - ah yes, some money too!


# HOW TO APPLY


Surprise us. Let me know via email on the address below why you're the right person for the job in whichever way you think is most appropriate (it’s part of the test).

Be sure to cover some basics like your name, email and relevant experience and let me know as soon as you can - I’m keen to hear from great people.

Thanks!

Omni Digital Bristol, United Kingdom

Back-end Django Developer - Full time

Overview

Omni Digital is looking for a confident developer with experience in Python and Django. The start date is immediate, the position offers flexible hours and the opportunity to work from home, and you will be provided with a new computer to use.

The salary will be commensurate with experience, and will be pro-rata.


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.

But we do have a ping pong table. And are in a industrial-style, open-plan office with a lot of Macs and some fake grass in the corner. Sorry.


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.
