Job Description

Do you want to cross train to Python?

Do you have strong software engineering fundamentals?

Do you have experience of working with C#/C++/Java and want to work with a number of different programming languages and technologies?

I am currently recruiting for a Python Software Engineer/Developer for a key client based in central Leeds.

They are happy to consider candidates from C#, C++, Java etc backgrounds as long as you are happy to cross train, learn and pick up Python development skills. You will undergo Python software development courses/training at the start of your employment with them and work alongside experienced Python Software Engineers to help with your progress.

A solid software engineering background is needed.

What my client are looking for:

Strong Software Engineering" fundamentals and practical experience

Commercial experience of software development in Python

Strong Object Oriented skills (eg from C#, C++, Java or similar)

Good database knowledge of SQL, NoSQL or PostgreSQL

Unit test frameworks

Strong practice of TDD development principles and continuous integration

Exposure to Nginx, Redis, Elastic Search or RabbitMQ would be really beneficial

Exposure to continuous integration, build tools (Jenkins, Ansible) and Scripting

Use of source code version control - Git, Subversion or Mercurial

It is a very collaborative, knowledge sharing, friendly, no egos or politics environment, with a relaxed dress code (shorts & flip flops?) with lots of little perks such as free breakfast and fruit (fully stocked kitchen).

Some would say their staff are the best around from a technical perspective (and interesting outside of work too!), you work hard but get a lot back in return.

They are offering excellent basic salaries plus benefits.

Interviews are taking place imminently, please apply immediately to be considered.
