Full Time
An innovative and award winning organization specialising in recruitment technology solutions is looking to recruit an experienced Software Developer to head up the Python migration project.

The Role
This is a fantastic opportunity to take charge of this business critical project where you will work with an exceptional team of Perl, JavaScript, SQL, security & infrastructure experts.

As the sole Python developer, it will fall to you to evangelise and expand the use of the software so the customer can better understand its capabilities around 'big data analytics' and 'machine learning algorithms'.

Working very closely with a senior management team your key responsibilities will include the responsibility for the initial design of the user interface whilst maintaining a clean separation between the 'back-end' and 'front end' courtesy of a reusable API you will also design and build a database to facilitate setting up of user accounts and data storage amongst other things.

You'll be given significant scope to make key decisions on the best products / methods to use to achieve your objective. It is important though that you do this within an environment that encourages iteration and refactoring, delivery of a minimal viable product and who discourages 'gold plating' whilst still striving for perfection!

The Candidate
We are therefore seeking an experienced Developer with an interest in working on creative software and previous exposure to either project or team management.

You will have previous, significant exposure to Python (preferably with Django given you'll be building in AWS), a basic understanding of SQL at the very least and a flair for design give the need for 'front end' design.

Previous exposure of Linux would be a distinct advantage as would knowledge of JavaScript and Bootstrap.

The Benefits
Very Attractive & Negotiable Salary
Desirable location
25 days' annual holiday (+ bank holidays)
Discounted Gym Membership

The Company
Established over 20 years ago they have built a business with state of the art offices now in New York, Asia and the heart of Wimbledon. Their customer base includes many household names and institutions.

Providing a stimulating, inventive yet friendly, environment they have recently exceeded their 5 year growth plan and have just put in place 'phase 2' making it a great time to join them.

We are acting as a Recruitment Consultancy for this role.
