Hello All

My company is looking to recruit a experienced software developer. We
use Python as our preferred development language. 

Most of our work is web based, some of our newer stuff is using Django. 

We're based in central-ish Bath. We have a company dog (well actually
its the bosses but it sometimes manages to sneak into the office). We
often "hack" with a hackey sack at lunch time.

The advert we posted on the python jobs website is included below...
