What we're looking for

We have been tasked by a UK-based funded start-up in the paid media bidding and management space to recruit a remote Full Stack Django Engineer. This innovative, profitable hyperscale up has rapidly grown in the past 3 years to 80+ people and is financially backed and mentored by some of the world's most successful entrepreneurs.

The position is available to be fully "remote". For the purposes of collaboration, successful candidates are expected to work in the CET time zone.


As a Full Stack Django Engineer at the client you will be building a wide variety of APIs and Web Applications for both internal and external users.

Typical Day to Day Activities

Starting off the day you would normally have in mind what you want to achieve that day. The client’s engineering culture promotes 3 modes of operation i.e. Specifying, Building and Shipping.

Everything else that adds no value is ruthlessly stripped away e.g. meetings are kept to a minimum and on call standups we don't do.

Rather you post your goals everyday and you can also view everyone else's goals and provide input if you feel you have something to contribute and vice versa.

If you are speccing out work you might use our forum to raise some thoughts, or you might be on a project steering call to gather some direction. In any case, you’re in the driving seat and with help at hand you’ll soon have a clear idea of what needs to be done.

Some Common tasks:

  • Work closely with colleagues to design and build APIs, database schemas and front end views which ultimately allow our users to support our customers better.
  • Integrate with Third party APIs.
  • Write minimal yet meaningful documentation
  • Working on CI/CD pipelines
  • Researching and adhering to best practices
  • Keeping our test coverage high

  • Refactoring for simplicity
  • Troubleshooting, debugging and bug fixes
  • Optimising for performance
  • Mentoring other engineers in your area of expertise or projects you worked on previously
  • Learning some new technology and reporting back on it
