Love Python and Django? So do we! At Context we use Django to develop our in-house web applications, the largest project being our back-office application (CHAOS) that does everything from scheduling jobs to financial forecasting and even planning social events. CHAOS already interfaces with our SugarCRM sales software via a REST API and upcoming integration work will link it to our new finance system. We also work on automated vulnerability scanning engines and a penetration testing administration system. And last but not least, we're developing a document writing tool (think Google Docs for writing security testing reports) using Ember.js and Django REST framework.
We're looking for a senior Python/Django developer to join the software development team in Context's London office. We are a small team (you'd be developer number five) but we like to punch above our weight and build software that really makes a difference. Almost all the software we use is open-source and we like to contribute back to the community (see github.com/ctxis for projects we've been working on).
This is a senior role so you'd be expected to take responsibility for projects, coordinate other members of the team, review their work and report progress to the team leader. The role will also involve interacting with other parts of the business and also external clients to understand what they want our systems to do, so in addition to being a great programmer, you need to be very good at listening to users and translating their needs into software requirements.
Degree in Computer Science and typically 7 years experience in software development
Expert Python and Django skills
Basic Linux system administration
Git experience. We use gitlab and have daily meetings to discuss any open merge requests
Good English language and interpersonal skills and ability to develop business requirements with a range of staff from across the company
Ability to work independently but also be a good team player
