OpenCorporates are recruiting for Mid-Level Engineers (Python) to be fully involved in the build and maintenance of our data processing platform. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in OpenCorporates at a time where we are going through significant technology transformation.
Reporting to the Head of Engineering you will have the opportunity to get involved in greenfield projects alongside your day to day fixes. You will be expected to bring your opinions and ideas to the table - we truly work in a collaborative way here at OC and you will be expected to bring that attitude as you work cross functionally across the team. In addition, good working practises will come naturally to you. This includes ensuring that we are preparing technical documentation that is scalable and easy to understand, and ensuring that code is tested prior to release. To be successful in this role you will demonstrate a high level of communication across the business and in our agile ceremonies.
We would love to hear from you if you have had significant Python experience, ideally gained from a fast paced start-up environment where change and evolution is the norm. Working knowledge of Ruby would be great. This role would suit someone who is naturally curious and can challenge the norms while also appreciating the level of commitment it will take for us to scale our platform.
Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification.

You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
