We have recently partnered with a well-funded start-up who have built a platform focused on delivering reliable and trustworthy used cars to a wider audience. In a traditionally untrustworthy industry, our client is wanting to bring a more streamlined service so that all buyers can be assured of the quality they will be receiving.

In the short time that they have been operating, they already have 3500 dealerships and 180,000 cars on the site. All of the dealerships are checked, and the cars must be respecting a strict criterion to be added.

The team, which currently consists of 10 engineers, are split into separate “squads”. The squads are built to be able to focus on separate aspects of the platform. This means you will be working in smaller, more agile pods to help tackle the workload spread across the engineering team. Each Squad is a build-up of Front End, Back End, QA, and DevOps engineers, giving them a broad range of skills and disciplines.

Now, we are looking for a Senior Back-End Developer to join their engineering team. You will be tasked with building highly scalable and maintainable code using Python (Django) on their greenfield platform. You will work closely with product, design, and sales, share technical solutions, lead pair programming and run code reviews.

What you need:

  • Extensive experience with Python (Django preferred)
  • Cloud experience (AWS/Azure etc…)
  • An understanding of system architecture and databases
  • A Passion for technology
  • Experience in a Start-up or fast pasted environment would be nice

They are a flexible team and offer some great benefits like a performance-based bonus, health insurance and the chance to learn.
