Job Description

Senior/Lead Python Developer / Django / SQL / £70,000 - £90,000

Amicus Recruitment are proud to be working with one of the largest media companies across the globe and they are looking for a Senior Python Developer to come in and take the lead on one of their key projects they are working on at the moment.

The business has been in operation for over 40 years and have developed an outstanding platform that is used globally by millions of users. They currently have around 900 people in the business across the globe and 22 of these are within the engineering team within London, where this role will sit. They have just acquired a large event booking company and are now looking to integrate that system into their current platform therefore, there is a lot of greenfield work to be done along with some maintenance and support of existing systems.

Even though this role sits within the engineering team of 22 it will be slightly a standalone role to get the wheels in motion with integrating the platform that they have acquired with their current platform. With that in mind, they do have visions of building a team around the chosen candidate. They do have a very collaborative culture therefore you will need to demonstrate the ability to work very effectively within a team. To be considered you will need to have very strong Python engineering skills, experience with relational databases, and a proven ability to manage software development lifecycles from design to deployment.


  • 3+ years’ experience using Python
  • Experience building web apps in Django
  • SQL databases
  • Managing software development lifecycles from design to deployment
  • Experience leading/mentoring junior developers would be beneficial
  • STEM degree would be highly desirable


A salary between £70,000 - £90,000 is on offer along with 33 days annual leave, 4% matching pension, stock options, life assurance, income protection flexibility to work from home plus many more.
