Wildfish England, United Kingdom

Django Developer (Remote)

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

Wildfish - https://wildfish.com

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

We're looking for a full stack developer to join us, ideally permanently but will consider freelancer too. 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 technical, 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.

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. Please also mention if you have any interest in cryptocurrency.

Thanks :)

As is the case for any software developer we will expect that can keep yourself abreast about the latest trends in our stack and have a keen willingness for continuous learning.

Application Tasks

NB. Please submit your answers to the questions below with your application. Applications without answers to these tasks will not be considered.

Question 1:

We are currently facing a challenge where we need to generate PDF’s of all the pages generated by the activities our research participants take part in. As we make use of Django rest framework and angular on our frontend the challenge is currently finding a way to generate these PDF programmatically. Come up with a solution of how you would approach this and which third party packages you would use.

Question 2:

We make requests to our API for data which is shared over several angular components. These components need to wait for the data to be available before they can run using this data. An example of this is we request the current user’s permissions based on different user groups (Admin and User) and then use that in several components to render the page the user should see depending on their privileges. Could you explain how you would implement this in angular with short extracts of the code.

Omni Digital Bristol, United Kingdom

Python Developer in Bristol

Join a team who are committed to the best work


Overview

Omni Digital is looking for a confident Python developer. The start date is flexible but the position is currently open.

The salary will be commensurate with experience, and will be pro-rata. The job offers the opportunity to work from home for one day per week.


About You

You will need to be able to work quickly and proficiently with Python, and experience with Django is preferable. 

Experience in a broad range of programming languages and technologies is desirable, but not necessary.

An openness to new technologies, and a 'right tools for the job' approach is mandatory. 

If you have experience in front-end technology this will be a bonus, but is not a requisite for the role, as we have a dedicated position filled for front-end and design. Plus, we do very little client-side development at all - an unfashionable position and one you would be welcome to question us on at your interview.

You will be committed to best practices 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.

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 workflows, new tech talks, etc -  all welcome.


About Us

We are a mature company (16 years!) with an experienced dev team. We build products, systems and applications primarily in Python and using Django, but utilise other technologies such as Javascript, Node, and GoLang where appropriate. We believe in the right tools for the job, not one hammer for every problem. 

Our infrastructure stack consists of modern tooling such as Ansible for the management of server configuration, with some ongoing experiments with Hashicorp Vault and Terraform.

We do primarily service clients, however our approach is to create open-source products that the clients’ work is built upon rather than treating every client project as a new job.

We have two of our own products under development, which we are looking to release to the market in the Summer. Our aim is to make our products become our primary source of income.

Our clients span public, private and charity sectors, and all expect the very best service from us. The NHS is an important client to us, and a recent project we worked on is: bnssgccg.nhs.uk.

For instance within the context of News & Media, we have produced NLP systems for the recognition of distinct entities, constructed highly concurrent web crawlers and have used machine learning to identify the quotes that journalists take down in interviews.

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 regular team 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 titles.

Our team is efficient, but small. We take pride in our efficiency but are looking to grow sensibly. You will be a part of a team of four back-end developers, one front-end designer-developer, and one person who deals with the clients and runs the Agile sprints.

Omni operates on a primarily flat hierarchy, we do not have account managers, business development managers, traffic managers or any of the other trappings of the stereotypical Digital Agency. Decisions around technology are lead by the dev team, our direction is planned and executed by the team as a whole.

We are based in one of the most beautiful and historic areas of Bristol: the Underfall Yard. We all enjoy having the opportunity to walk along the water in our breaks and appreciate our surroundings. 

As a business Omni is dedicated to ethical and sustainable practices and are in the final stages of qualifying for B Corps certification.


The Work Involved

The role will largely see you focused on back-end development in Python. 

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

  • Building systems in Python and Django
  • Integrating HTML flats prepared by our template designer / frontend developer
  • Testing - unit and function testing, as well as smoke tests and peer review
  • Any training for new or existing staff in back-end technologies
  • Research and development


Hours

You will be working 40 hours per week with paid lunch. 


How to Apply

To apply, please email contact@omni-digital.co.uk with a ONE PAGE C.V.

Octopus Energy London, United Kingdom

Back-end developer

WANTED: thoughtful back-end developers to help build out our platform.

Octopus Energy is a tech-focused energy supplier for the UK market and we’re are looking for diligent and thoughtful software engineers, of any level of experience, to join our growing team.

We’re building a modern, event-driven platform for interacting with both consumers (via the web, mobile and smart-meters) and the industry (eg data flows, consumption forecasting, trading on the wholesale market).

We’re an innovative and customer-focussed company, helping to drag the energy industry into the 21st century.

This is a rare opportunity to use technology to help fight climate change through helping the UK to use green technology and renewable energy sources.


OUR TEAM

All technology is written and maintained by a multi-discipline engineering team of around ten people. This includes server-side, client-side and mobile engineers working closely with UX experts, copywriters and designers.

We follow a Kanban-like approach, using Google docs and Trello to specify and manage work; Github, CircleCI and Terraform Enterprise as part of an immutable-infrastructure, continuous delivery pipeline; and Loggly, Sentry and Cloudwatch to measure performance and monitor production.

Engineering standards are high. We pair program, thoroughly review and test code before it deploys and maintain fast, high-value test suites. We have weekly tech talks, monthly blitz-days (eg sharpening our internal tools, upgrading dependencies) and can often be found at tech meet-ups and conferences.


OUR TECHNOLOGY

On the server-side, we mainly use Python. Our consumer-facing site is powered by Django and the Django-REST-framework. We also use Pandas, Numpy and Jupyter for analysis and forecasting, plus Celery, RabbitMQ, SQS and Airflow for background processing.

We use AWS heavily, employing most of the “Hashistack” (eg Packer, Consul, Terraform) as part of a continuous deployment pipeline.


WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We’re looking for someone with a general interest in technology and problem-solving; someone diligent and thoughtful. It would be helpful to have experience/expertise in the following (in rough priority order):

  • Python
  • Django (or equiv. web framework)
  • Domain modelling
  • HTTP and REST APIs
  • Writing robust and fault-tolerant software
  • Celery and async processing
  • Postgres

Plus experience in the following would be a bonus:

  • AWS
  • Terraform, Packer, Consul
  • React and Redux

We would prefer someone who can work in our Soho office but will consider remote candidates (warning: the bar is much higher). You do need to be able to work in the UK without a VISA though.

Above all, we’re looking for someone who thrives on providing alternative opinions, challenging those around them and being challenged.

For more details, including some sample internal documents, see: https://octopus.energy/careers/back-end-developer/

Could this be you?
