Overview

Do you love working with Django and Python? Are you a fearless generalist that doesn’t mind getting stuck into different problems? Then we might have a job for you…

About us and your role:

Beauhurst is on a mission to track every interesting startup and high-growth company in the UK. We help advisors, investors, government and educators learn about the UK’s most ambitious companies through our online platform.

  • As we expand our data coverage and strive to make our product even more useful, you’ll help us tackling a range of interesting problems, such as:Modeling, storing and enabling efficient and relevant user searches over large-scale datasets (think millions of records)
  • Improving the way in which our data is currently accessed – from eye-popping graphical visualisations to aggregated statistics that’ll make our users go “Aha!”
  • Helping us to keep it all together by building accurate internal monitoring and data collection tools

Don’t worry if all of this seems a bit daunting for one person – you’ll be working alongside a team of committed Djangonauts in a tightly-knit, expanding development team.
We’re looking for:

  • Proficiency in Python and experience in server-side development with Django
  • Solid front-end development basics (HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript)
  • Experience with Postgresql or other relational databases
  • A natural problem-solver with a passion for learning

Bonus points if you have one or more of these:

  • Experience in building and deploying web applications with Docker
  • Familiarity with Linux and Amazon Web Services (EC2)
  • Experience with testing (Pytest, Selenium) and continuous integration
  • Worked with a Javascript framework (Backbone, Vue.js, Angular, etc.) or visualisation library (d3, Flot, etc.)

What it’s like to work with us:

  • Friendly, relaxed and collaborative startup culture including an expanding development team with a flat structure
  • Monthly skill-sharing meetings in our office and sponsorship to attend relevant conferences (PyCon, DjangoCon, PyData)
  • Competitive salary (of course!)
  • Access to a well-stocked ever growing programming book collection
  • Our newly renovated Brixton office is stocked with coffee, tea, beer, soft drinks, fresh fruit and snacks
  • Regular evenings out (we’re a very sociable bunch!)
