Python/Django Developer

Full-time, London

The Role

We're looking for a full-stack Python / Django developer with 1-2 years of professional experience (and Cyber Security ambitions!) to join the software development team based in our London office. In this role you’ll be assisting with the design and implementation of new features across SaaS and internal applications, supporting members of our multi-disciplinary team, and assisting with improvements to our DevOps capabilities.
Almost all of the software we use is open-source and we like to contribute back to the community (see for some of the projects we've been working on). We are passionate about continuously improving our development practices at all levels of the stack and investigating technologies such as: Celery, RabbitMQ, Ansible, Docker, Kubernetes, Vagrant, Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana.
Our applications make use of continuous integration pipelines (Pytest, Gitlab, Docker, Kubernetes), feature Pythonic code, high test coverage, little technical debt, and use technologies including: Websockets, Django Channels, and Python AsyncIO.
With new products in the pipeline we’re now building our team to meet the demands of a business that is experiencing year-on-year growth. If you’re a Python / Django developer interested to work in a highly collaborative agile environment focused on delivering secure tools and software products to support our operations at the forefront of the cyber security industry we would certainly like to hear from you.
