Hello all,

Abilisoft is a small ISV specialising in server and application
availability monitoring as well as event collection and to a lesser
degree event management.  We have been around since about 2005 and are
a small team looking to add a few new Python developers.

The problems we deal with range from building a cross platform Python
application interacting with low-level system libraries to a wide
array of systems, network, database and even web development to some
degree.  To give a flavour of the sort of things we do here a list of
the main third party libraries and tools we use in no particular

cx_Oracle, psycopg2, freetds/python-sybase, sqlite3
pymongo, redis
eventlet, dpkt, requests, pysnmp
django, pyramid, waitress
py.test, Hudson
svn, hg

Likely soon this will also include zeromq and msgpack.  This list
looks more database-heavy then it really is in day-to-day work.  And
obviously experience with these is not required as we expect you to be
able to pick up new things.  The platforms we support are the common
Linux variants, Solaris, AIX, OSX and Windows where we build the
entire Python toolchain from scratch for each.

The roles would include the full range of development activities:
designing and implementing new features, maintaining and extending
existing products, build required testing infrastructure, documenting
new work, etc.

Our offices are based in Bedfordshire and currently everyone works
from the office most of the time.  However we might be open to remote
working, here we envisage all employees visiting the office the first
week of our 3-month development cycle.  The first few months we'd
likely expect more time in the office as well.

If you are interested please do not hesitate to contact me at
floris at abilisoft.com (or a simple reply will make it as well).
