Python / Django Engineer

We're a technology company focused on building the most powerful product sampling platform in the world. Our products are used by brands such as L'Oreal and Cadbury, as a way of driving trial and reaching new customers over social media. We launched in 2012, initially with the goal of creating a dynamic postal address linked to social IDs, shifting our focus to product sampling a year later.

We're a small but growing team, headquartered in central Newcastle and with offices in London and New York. Our business is well capitalised, with venture capital and angel backing.

Our mission is clear - we want to be the world’s most powerful product sampling platform.

Essential

  • Python & Django
  • HTTP
  • Git & Github Workflow

You're going to be developing web products and properties using Django so it should be no surprise that you need to know Python, Django and HTTP. Your work is going to integrate with the platform team and to do this you will follow the GitHub workflow.

Optional

  • Modern, accessible HTML
  • CSS & SCSS
  • JavaScript
  • PostgreSQL / Elasticsearch

These are not required skills, and they are entirely optional. We use these languages/technologies here and being aware, or having capability is a clear signal that you possess the right set of skills for this role.

We have multiple dedicated people that deal specifically with these optional hard skills because we recognise they are deep skills worthy of separate roles. However, some technical crossover is very desirable.

Holidays & Benefits

  • You'll get 23 days holiday plus bank holidays a year. Once you have been here for three years, we'll give you an extra two days holiday allowance per year.
  • We keep a well-stocked fridge full of soft drinks, or if you prefer something more refined, we have delicious coffee beans and a great coffee machine. We engage in team activities once in a while, bringing everyone in the company together from all over the world.
  • You will also get some excellent tech to use. You can either choose between a non- retina iMac + 4K monitor or you can have a retina iMac. Once you are out of your probation, it is also customary to reward you with a lovely mechanical Cherry keyboard.
