My client has built a mobile apps product that has experienced exponential growth and as a result have needed to scale their technology platform to understand the growing needs of their customer base. The challenge is the ability to create a real-time data platform that provides a continuous feedback loop in on users and then being able to adjust the core product. As a result, a need for a Python programmer who is comfortable working in emerging technologies but can still apply robust programming methods for data challenges is needed to help evolve their data platform for 2014 and beyond.
The ideal profile is a versatile individual that has a "passion for programming" and has pushed the capabilities specifically of what one can do with Python both in traditional and emerging technology platforms. The core skill is relatively straightforward: An excellent Python programmer. Beyond this the client will look at the following:
• Evidence of an early interest in programming (pre-university?)
• Personal projects requiring programming skills (it's more than just a job?)
• Interest in emerging technologies in the area (Django, Go, Clojure etc).
• An intuitive understanding of the challenges of integrating mobile apps technology with back-end data frameworks.
The environment consists of individuals with various technology backgrounds (the Founder is a technologist at heart) and thus will appeal to individuals who want to join a business where the value of developers is central to the success of the firm.
