United Kingdom

FILLED Full stack Django freelancer(s) somewhere near Yorkshire FILLED

This position is in the process of being filled so please DO NOT APPLY.

If you have already applied and not had a personal reply my apologies.

I am retiring due to poor health and recruiting my own replacement for my largest client. They have a small Django website which is used to support personalised car registration auctions. The site needs a number of new features adding, payment processing and a new, responsive front end for example. The site also needs upgrading, usability improvements, greater test coverage and general tightening up.

At the moment we use:

  • postgres
  • git
  • fabric
  • nginx with uwsgi
  • basecamp

The client currently takes 100 hour/month at £40/hour. There is no urgent work needed and this is an average figure i.e. you can vary the number of hours you do in a month to work around other clients, holidays, sickness etcetera, as long as the average remains 100 hours per month. 

If you work in a company with other developers that would be a bonus as it provides more continuity, but expertise and reliability are the most essential things. The clients are not technical and require you to provide clear guidance and direction. I will be available to hand over and field questions for the first few months.

The client is based in Leeds and the site is hosted in York. They like to have a face-to-face meeting every few weeks so ideally you will be located in or around Yorkshire.  You must be based in the UK.

Please get in touch with questions as I'm sure there will be things I have missed out.
