(Apologies in advance for those of you who might've already seen this 
advert on Planet Python)

Are you a recent Software Engineering graduate looking to join an Agile 
team? Or do you have 3 years industry experience and a passion for learning?

We're a fast-paced, well-funded Web 2.0 business looking for a 
pro-active software developer to join our talented, self-organizing 
software development team.

    About you

    * *You are hungry to learn:* You actively seek change --- always
      looking for opportunities to improve professionally, and to help
      your team develop. You read software-related publications, welcome
      criticism of your work and offer your colleagues honest feedback.
    * *You're willing to try new things:* Want to try your hand at
      requirements gathering or UI design? If the idea of becoming a
      Generalizing Specialist
      appeals, this could be the right job for you.
    * *You have excellent communication skills:* You're comfortable
      communicating verbally, graphically or in written text, and you're
      happy explaining technical concepts to non-technical people.
    * *You're qualified and/or experienced:* You have a Software
      Engineering degree, an equivalent certificate from a leading
      organization (e.g.: IEEE-CS <http://www.computer.org/>, BCS
      <http://www.bcs.org/>) or have at least 3 years experience.
    * *You appreciate a sociable, friendly and supportive working
      environment:* We value technical expertise and encourage
      developers to exercise their initiative and engage with the
      business as a whole.

This is primarily a Web Development role. Experience or knowledge of 
Python, Django, GNU/Linux, Git, jQuery, Solr, Postgres and Agile 
development methodologies is a big plus, but is not required. *We simply 
want someone with the right attitude* and we'll help you get up to speed 
with anything you're not familiar with!

    About the Software Development Team

    * We're in the process of adopting Scrum and have successfully
      embedded Agile techniques such as Pair Programming, Test-Driven
      Development and daily stand up meetings.
    * We contribute to the Free Software we use and publish our own on
      GitHub <https://github.com/2degrees>.
    * Our recent and current projects include surfacing popular content,
      simplification of our sign-up process, generation of business
      reports on site usage, and a major rework of content access
      permissions which allows us to expose valuable content to
      non-authenticated users.
    * Future projects include a content recommendation system,
      integration with the Campaign Monitor mailing service, a re-work
      of our subscription model, user tracking and metrics, and major
