We’re looking for 2 outstanding developers to join our team.

  • You know your 403s from your 301s and your PUTs from your POSTs
  • You take personal pride in your work

What you’ll be doing:

  • Writing well-designed, efficient and maintainable Python code
  • Building user-friendly sites and systems that make use of modern web technologies (e.g. HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, AJAX)
  • Designing technical solutions to fulfil client requirements in innovative yet practical ways
  • Working with a smart, supportive team
  • Working in an environment where your opinion matters and where your ideas and recommendations can make a difference

Other stuff:
