    Ostmodern are digital product designers, video-on-demand specialists and content delivery experts.

    We believe that innovative design, allied with rock-solid technology, produces brilliant products. And, over the last seven years, we’ve proved that our strategic thinking, design approach and technical delivery ensures tangible competitive advantage and real commercial return.

    Our team of specialists work with leading media, broadcast and sports brands to define product strategies, design human-centered experiences, develop innovative solutions and implement hardworking products across web, desktop, mobile, tablet and TV.

    Most often though, we prefer to let our work do the talking and with glowing recommendations from high profile clients such as the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Arsenal FC, Virgin Media, News Corp, Microsoft and EE, we like to think our credentials speak for themselves.

We're looking a for lead developers to join our existing team and help us oversee the implementation and delivery of our projects. Ideally you will be opinionated in your tastes as to how you approach problems, but also open to ideas and have a pragmatic streak that helps deliver them.

At Ost we're known in the industry mainly for our video-based work, but we've recently won awards for the Arsenal FC site http://www.arsenal.com/home, recently launched the shiny new BFI player http://player.bfi.org.uk/ and we've also built healthcare applications which are now being used by healthcare professionals.

There will be plenty of opportunity to stay hands on with code and widen your skills into other technologies as we are hoping to break into Smart TV application development to increase our offering to clients as part of our recently developed video platform.

Day to day responsibilities include:

  • Plan and architect projects and their technical solutions to a high standard.
  • Support projects with Devops/Sysadmin expertise, setup of deployment and testing environments.
  • Communicating with multi-disciplinary internal and external teams to ensure high quality project deliveries.
  • Support more junior members of staff, assisting in their development (as individuals) and reviewing their code.
  • Stay up to date with the latest technology developments and be prepared to present them internally and to clients

Required Experience:

  • Python and well-known MVC frameworks Django and Flask
  • Git in conjunction with github and git-flow
  • Deploying projects using tools such as Jenkins
  • Vagrant and Puppet/Chef
  • Familiar with Debian/Ubuntu and the CLI

Would be great if you knew about these:

  • Other linux distributions such as CentOS
  • Front-end technologies (HTML/CSS/JS)
  • Front-end frameworks and libraries (such as Grunt, SASS, Bootstrap)
  • Caching systems and non-relational databases
  • OVPs and Video players
