Full Stack Lead Python Developer

Apr 22 2015 [Archived Version] □ Published at Djangojobs.Net latest jobs

Calibrater Health is hiring its first full time developer. We have paying customers, a stable code base written by the co-founders, and we are looking for a developer with a few years of experience to join our growing company.

The role: work constantly and closely with the co-founders out of the Blueprint Health offices in Soho building and shipping product in the early stages of a high-growth startup, as you build and scale our innovative real-time system for capturing and distributing patient experience data. You will be involved in as many product decisions as you want, and will have full reign to choose the tools, frameworks and best practices of your choice. Eventually, you will also be responsible for hiring and managing a team. We are offering the right candidate an exciting chance to be a formative and key member of the founding team.

But wait, there is more: We have a managed platform provider to take care of most DevOps tasks, and a front end contractor to take care of the more complicated lines of JS, both of whom you will manage as your resources. There is also an iOS app in contract development, a process you will have as much or little involvement with as you want. We believe in test coverage, beautiful code, and agile style processes that constantly deliver business value.

The ideal candidate

  • you are authorized to work in the US (we are not currently offering visa sponsorship)
  • you are an experienced developer who has learned from some great engineers and mentors, but it is time for you to start leading a product and team of your own
  • you have spent time writing in Python / Django, you are technically curious, and love learning new things
  • you have an indomitable attitude, and find solutions not problems; you ship code
  • you bring humility, an open mind and an outstanding work ethic to a team that shares your values

What we offer

  • a chance to work with the founding team on a CTO track as we build and scale an already successful product
  • competitive equity and salary compensation
  • great office space at Blueprint Health / The Farm in Soho
  • health benefits, plenty of time off, coffee, and more coffee

About us: Calibrater Health helps doctors get better, and help patients achieve better outcomes. We already have customers who love us and our product, and we are tackling a huge opportunity in a rapidly changing market. Join our hard working, fun loving and ego-free team and help us make a difference.

Django Developer

Apr 21 2015 [Archived Version] □ Published at Djangojobs.Net latest jobs

We’re a multi award-winning team expanding the online bookable campsite and holiday park market where only 30% are bookable online. And we want another expert to join us.

We're looking for an ambitious and talented Python developer to join our team of three developers managing triple-digit annual growth and tackling tough online booking, search and geo challenges. We’re all about collaboration – you’ll take part in regular brainstorms as the company grows rapidly, and gain direct experience of the rapid evolution of a high-profile growth company, working alongside experts in an apolitical, friendly environment.

Pitchup.com is the market leading online booking site for campsites and caravan parks, with over 1,200 sites available in 14 European countries and plans for global expansion.

More Brits go camping and caravanning than holiday in Spain and Greece combined, and the market is booming as Brits switch to domestic holidays. Now, we're expanding into Europe and further afield.

Judged Best UK Travel Site at the 2011 British Travel Press Awards, Pitchup.com receives up to 70,000 visits and over 1,000 bookings per day. The company is profitable and was founded in 2009 by former lastminute.com staff with a background in the holiday park sector.

Cool stuff we’ve done recently include launching our new mobile site and app and being cited at the recent W3C/ODI/OKF Open Data on the Web event for our use of public transport and attraction data. Behind the scenes we’ve built some pretty nice features to help campsite owners manage their vacancies and encourage them to sign up.

We’re based in the award-winning Barley Mow Centre off the Chiswick High Road (nearest tubes Turnham Green, Gunnersbury) and are a lively friendly team with bags of experience. We want someone similar to join us – is that you?

What you might be working on:

  • adding geo features such as new points of interest and time-based search
  • group bookings functionality to determine the optimal combination of pitches offered
  • implementing new payment systems to streamline the customer experience
  • growing our euro-denominated business to capitalise on the European market
  • enabling local-market versions of our site
  • testing and personalising our site
  • optimising our marketing channels
  • taking further steps to maximise speed and stability
  • launching our mobile apps

About you:

  • a Python expert first and foremost, with knowledge of at least one Python web framework (ideally Django)
  • good PostgreSQL experience
  • strong JavaScript skills (highly regarded, likely to be 5-10% of time)
  • familiar with Linux server environments
  • willing to undertake sysadmin work
  • keen to get involved in a hands-on way, suggesting new ways forward for the site and enjoying coming up with new feature ideas
  • a fan of agile working practices – you get things done
  • a quick-on-the-uptake problem solver

Backend stack: Python / Django / Postgres / Celery / nginx / S3 Salary: £35,000 - £65,000, dependent on experience

Some remote working is possible, and some on-call evenings and weekends will be required.
