Job Description

Senior-Lead Python Engineer / Tech-for-good / Up to £90k / Fully remote (Europe)

I have recently connected with a brand-new organisation that are looking to continue the growth of their engineering team by onboarding 1x Senior and 1x Lead Python Engineer.


The organisation was founded in 2017 and after a solid year of building their product they officially launched in 2018. Their platform is a consumer-based platform that enables doors to be opened for certain individuals and provides the right insurance for others. It is aimed to ensure that there is a level of fairness across the industry, making life better for all as everyone will reap the benefits. They have had a very strong start to business and are now partnered with some of the largest organisations across the UK which dictate the industry. The headcount currently sits a 35, 8 of which sit across the product and engineering team which they are now investing a lot of time in to scaling. Pre-Covid, they had office space in London however, they have now seen the benefits of becoming a remote first company and are now operating that way for the indefinite future.


You will be working closely alongside the CTO and across multiple cross functional teams on a vast range of projects to continue improving the platforms offering and service. The platform itself has been built out using Python, Django, React and AWS with PostgreSQL databases and they have some serious plans on how they take it to the next level therefore, there is a lot of exciting challenges to be faced. As a lead, you will be heavily involved with defining and reviewing the company’s roadmap, coaching, and mentoring juniors, taking ownership over sprints to ensure projects and features are being delivered, leading code reviews and working on the architecture of the platform. Working closely with the product team is key for this position therefore, you will need to demonstrate that you have previously worked with and had influence on product decisions previously. Below highlights the technical skills required to be considered for this role:

  • 3+ years’ experience coding in Python
  • Experience with Django or similar Python frameworks
  • AWS
  • Heroku would be beneficial

In terms of salary, the company are offering anything between £70,000 - £90,000 depending on experience along with 25 days annual leave + an extra day for your birthday + bank holidays, life assurance, potential stock options + more.

This is a fully remote role however, you must be based in Europe and have the right to work in the country you are situated in.
