This position is now filled
Fancy helping to build the Python world's favourite PaaS (probably)? We're looking for a "junior" programmer with plenty of smarts to come and join the team, learn the stuff we do, and inject some new ideas...
Here's some stuff you'd be doing:
Working in an Extreme Programming (XP) shop, pair programming and TDD all day, woo*.
Devops! Or what we take it to mean, which is that you deploy to and administer the servers as well as write code for them. Lots of Linux command-line goodness in SSH sessions, and automated deployment stuff.
Sexy CV-padding technologies! Like Docker, nginx, websockets, Django, copy-on-write filesystems, Ansible, GNU/Linux (Ubuntu), virtualbox, vagrant, continuous integration, AWS, redis, Postgres, and even Windows XP! (although we're phasing that last one out, to our great chagrin). Don't worry, you don't have to know any of these before you show up, you'll get to learn them all on the job...
Learn vim (if you want to) much faster than you would on your own by being forced to pair program with vim cultists all too happy to explain the abstruse keyboard shortcuts they're using...
Get involved in the nonprogramming aspects of the business too (we all do!), like customer support and marketing. Honestly, that can be fun too.
Work near enough to Silicon Roundabout that you can walk to the Hacker News meetups, but not so near that you're forced to overhear bad startup ideas being pitched in every coffee shop
* The pair programming thing is an unbelievably good deal for new developers btw, there's just no faster way of learning than sitting down next to someone that knows and being able to ask them questions all day, and they're not allowed to get annoyed.
Here's the kind of person we'd like
Here's some stuff we don't care about:
