Senior python developer – Ecometrica

Who are we?
Ecometrica is primarily based in Edinburgh, UK and in Montreal, Canada, with around 50 employees. Since we were founded in 2008, we have been named as one of the world’s top Sustainability brands.
We are a three-time Financial Times 1000 and Deloitte Fast 500 company (2017-19), an FT Future 100 and Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 company (both 2018), an Inc Magazine 5000 company (2017) and are also four-time Environmental Leader Product of the Year award winners (2016-19).

What we do
Ecometrica provides sustainability and responsibility monitoring platforms to companies, organisations and governments around the world. We also work with the UK and European Space Agencies.
We build downstream space technologies to offer monitoring solutions for forests, commodities, land use change, emissions, supply chain risk and disaster response.
Our platform is currently being used to actively monitor over 300 million hectares of tropical forest, provide corporate sustainability monitoring services covering over half a billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent, and help some of the world’s largest companies manage their global operations through the Covid-19 pandemic.

What we are looking for
We are looking for a permanent, full time Senior Python Developer.
Candidates need to:
Be an experienced Python developer with Django experience
Have experience using core AWS services (EC2, RDS, S3, etc.)
Have experience with the Linux CLI
Have good communication skills, both verbally and written
Enjoy helping other members of the team
Have the legal right to work in either Canada or the UK
Candidates would benefit from having any of the following:
Experience using Git
General frontend knowledge (HTML, CSS, Javascript)
Experience building APIs (especially in Django/DRF)
Experience with other AWS services (Route53, CloudFormation, Lambda, AMIs, Load Balancers, etc.)
Experience with GIS

What you will (and won’t) be doing
You will be part of a friendly, collaborative team where you will both help design and build new products as well as improve existing systems.
You will contribute to the mentoring of junior members of the team, helping them solve problems and develop their skills.
You will take part in some (we’re coders, we don’t want to spend all day talking) meetings where your voice will be heard and your opinion will matter.
You will work in a relaxed working environment. We don’t do “crunch time”, we don’t do regular tight deadlines and we don’t do regular overtime. We are strong advocates of a good work-life balance and having a happy and well rested team.
You will manage your own time and workload. We don’t do micro-management and we don’t have seagull managers…this is a no fly zone!
