About the Job

Python Software Engineer - back-end, open source, security (west Reading)

Weighty opportunity for a hard core Programmer (Python, GO, clusterable databases, open source, proxies, database optimisation, Docker, git/stackoverflow/slack) to join a strongly growing, well funded tech company established in 2008.  

The role will appeal to an experienced back-end Software Engineer absolutely at the top of their game, with a deep and broad knowledge of multiple programming languages and who is excited by the chance to make their mark alongside a small team of incredibly smart ‘techie’ developers. 

Specifically you will have much of the following:

·         Excellence in modern Python “with a Pythonic approach”

·         The ability to analyse new open source libraries and refactor code to suit

·         A strong knowledge of network protocols, in particular creating lightweight proxies for credential injection and session recording

·         Knowledge of when to use an existing library (they use 280 open source libraries) and when to code one from scratch

·         A strong sense of security, encryption, and what makes code resilient against attack

·         A good understanding of a WireShark trace

·         Belief in unit testing - nose, py.test, unittest2

·         Good database optimisation skills

·         The ability to switch programming languages at ease

·         Working knowledge of esoteric programming languages

·         Knowledge of the architecture of Linux, Windows, MacOSX and network devices
