We are soon to lose our senior back-end engineer to take up a
Fellowship in the Django Foundation. Go Mariusz! So we are looking for
an experienced back-end developer to take on his responsibilities and

well-architected Django API (Go Mariusz!). We are currently using
AngularJS (we are moving to Angular 6 this year) on the front end with
Python, Django and PostgresSQL on the back - all sitting on AWS.

We are a small informal team and always looking for ways to improve
how we do things. We make use of Jenkins, Selenium and also Jira,
Slack and Zoom to manage the work. We work remotely with folk in
far-flung places meeting up in person twice a year (expenses paid) and
I need someone who is comfortable working in this environment.

If you are based in UK, US or India this could be a permanent role
with bonus, pension, holidays, etc. but the contract option is
available for everyone.

The application process consists of a quick coding exercise, an
