Hi folks,

Just a note to say we're hiring at least one Python/Django web
developer at Oxford University Computing Services.

The primary project you'll be working on is Mobile Oxford (the
University's award winning mobile services). There's a lot of
interesting  and blue-sky work yet to be done on this project which
combines dozens of data sources from across our University to provide
services such as location-based library searches and real time bus
information, using mobiles to answer lecture questions in real time
and much more (we're currently working on a major UI refresh).

In addition to this, there will be a number of other projects using
Python including a user-facing VoIP phone management system, the
University's central audio/video repository system and workflow.
