My client is reinventing business finance: their mission is to help small businesses grow by offering them fast, flexible access to finance. Banks have neglected Europe's millions of small businesses because their processes were too slow, rigid and costly to serve them effectively.

My client is looking for a Python Developer to help them transform this industry. Since their launch in 2012 they have lent over £250m to 12,000 SMEs across Europe. Over the next decade we aim to provide financing to 1 million small businesses.

The successful Python Developer will help to build the smartest lending platform in the world as they believe that finance should be as simple, seamless and powerful as electricity. They like to use Agile processes, which means features or projects go live in days or weeks rather than months or years.

They have a CTO who ensures that Tech is always at the forefront of the business so the work you do is always valued. You could be doing anything from working on their REST API, asynchronous processing, automated testing patterns or contributing to their underwriting tools.

Requirements

Strong experience in Backend Programming (ideally in Python)
Computer Science or Software Engineering education or equivalent industry experience
Understanding of key computer science principles including algorithms, data structures and computational complexity theory
Experience developing Python
Knowledge of relevant web frameworks (ideally Django)
