In short, we're looking for a new django developer, someone with a
couple of years of web development experience with a web framework such
as Django, Ruby on Rails etc. We build the bulk of our projects on the
Django platform so you need to be comfortable with how web-apps are
built within the MVC pattern.
We're a creative agency with a heavy focus on digital. We build software
to fit our clients needs - be it e-commerce, marketing or a hefty amount
of data migration onto new platforms.
You need to be ok with object orientated programming - much of our code
is written to be generic from the outset and this relies on inheritance
and code reuse throughout. We push some of our code to github so you’ll
be part of a team that is getting to release for others as well as
working on high profile flagship sites such as those for Vans and
You'll be part of a small, growing team with backend and frontend
developers, and you'll be required to have basic skills across the
from your margin.
It’s essential that you are familiar with the use of source control - if
it's not in the repo it doesn't exist as far as the build is concerned.
Our servers are typically Linux based, experience with that is useful to
have but we’ll get you up to speed on what you’ll need. We are very much
a LAMP shop. With the P standing for Python.
It's also not unknown for us to have to work with an existing library of
code so you might be doing PHP or some AS3 based Flash at times -
switching languages shouldn't scare you. You should be familiar with at
least one form of source control and use it for your own projects.
You should be keen to go and learn new things on your own - if for
example a plugin you use breaks you should either be able to fix it
yourself, know how to get around the issue or be able to work with an
alternative without impacting the project negatively.
Ideally you've got a github or similar for us to peruse or else a very
lengthy and detailed technical blog.
If that sounds good, do drop me an email.
