ReportLab builds state-of-the-art technology for document generation
in Python, and develops solutions around this for major blue-chip 
clients. ReportLab offers a chance to work on world-beating technology 
with very high quality mentors, a first class customer base and enormous 
potential for growth.

We are now building a new generation of applications to publish PDF on 
demand for specific vertical markets using our own core products. These 
will let end users log in and manage data and templates through the web. 
They will need flexible admin interfaces to let customers enter and 
approve data, well thought out designs for business logic prior to 
publishing with our own PDF products. We aim to make use of the very 
latest and best ideas in web development to help create value for our 
customers and a scalable business model for ourselves.

We're looking for a good all-rounder to join our team and work on this, 
as well as many other projects.

The ideal candidate will either be a graduate or have up to 3 years 
experience and several of these skills:

     * Python programming - or enough evidence of skill elsewhere to
       persuade us you can learn it quickly
     * Understanding of web frameworks, databases, XML. Django
       experience is a plus
     * know CSS and HTML
     * have an eye for visual design
     * know Javascript beyond the usual form validation (Ajax a plus)
     * have the common sense to know when coding is NOT the answer
     * good analysis skills - the ability to listen to customers, figure
       out where the value lies, and help decide what to build in the
       first place

You must have native-quality written English, good aptitude for 
programming, and an ability to Get Things Done.

You will get responsibilities which are not possible in large companies 
including a chance to work with the latest and best technologies; to see 
substantial, cutting-edge projects from commencement to delivery with 
world class clients; and to help design and roll out entire software 
services with fantastic upside potential.

To apply, find the Careers page on our website and follow the instructions.
