Hey folks,

We seemed to decide the list is happy with a few appropriate job posts, 
and my new employer is hiring, so I thought I'd send this:

Rangespan is a six month old Python-oriented startup, currently around 
ten people, based in Paddington Station, London.

We're looking for experienced developers, with strong computer science 
backgrounds, and the sort of high profile that comes with expertise and 
a pro-active attitude: Python core contributors, conference speakers, 
open source contributors & project leaders, thoughtful agile 
evangelists, and scalability experts. We need a data scientist, too.

In my first two weeks here I've been impressed by the high standards of 
quality and the company's vaulting ambition. We provide high-scale 
e-commerce technology to create a revolutionary marketplace between 
major online retailers, and a vast network of suppliers, transacting 
across millions of products daily. Development has progressed enough to 
start deploying and demonstrating the reality of this vision, but is 
still early enough that all of us have a substantial effect on the 
future of the company.

We have roles for various levels, up to £50k base, plus equity in a 
company that has a fighting chance of revolutionizing the relationship 
between retailers and suppliers.

The sort of experience we're looking for includes:

    * Highly fluent in Python, experienced with Django, Amazon Web
      Services, MySQL and MongoDB.
    * Ability to contribute to an Agile environment, introducing new
      practices, refining our process, being strong on testing and TDD.
    * Expertise in architecting, coding & deploying RESTful web services
      & web applications.
    * Automated deployments to EC2.
    * Provisioning new hardware and debugging live code.
    * Ability to attract additional world-class software developers.
    * BS, MS or PhD degree in Computer Science or equivalent field.

The founders are ex-Amazon executives and engineers, and bring a wealth 
of commercial and operational expertise. While the atmosphere is 
informal and affable, the technical team is intimidatingly proficient. 
To quote one of our founders "It's critical to the success of our 
business to create the highest quality engineering team possible, so 
that we can provide the best technical infrastructure in the world." We 
don't use recruiters, because they don't match up to the quality of 
candidates we insist upon.

If you want to work alongside the best of the best, drop us a line.

I'm happy to answer casual questions personally, and if you want to make 
a formal application, see http://rangespan.com/jobs/
