Senior Python Engineer

Some problems are not very sexy but they are very lucrative and this might be a perfect illustration. A start-up business of 15 people funded by a major UK-based energy company is looking to build a platform that will connect tradespeople with jobs that require their skills.

They are off to a solid start, with the platform already processing several hundred jobs weekly. They are about to be awarded the work to service thousands of boilers for customers of their parent company and they need to scale the platform quickly.

This is just the first sure step in some very ambitious growth plans, but I mention it to give you confidence that this is not some shiny VC-funded wannabe unicorn but instead a business with some very careful plans and access to steady revenue to help fund them.

Why do they need your skills as a Python Engineer?

They want to bring someone senior into the business which is purely technical and wants to keep their focus on solving the problems that come with building something that can scale easily.

Andy the CTO wants to seed the team with a couple of very experienced Python engineers to help underpin further growth of the team and the platform.

What sort of tech stack is involved?

Python is their primary backend language, and you will need solid skills in this area. The platform is AWS, and it would be very helpful if you have direct experience, but a background on other major cloud providers would also be considered.

There is also work in TypeScript, React and React Native, but your role will be primarily back-end focussed.

What problems need to be solved?

The team is working on all aspects of the platform, which will handle customer data, invoicing, a chat feature, payments, scheduling, and even route optimization for travelling between jobs with the minimum amount of fuel and time wasted.

What does the future hold?

Whilst the initial focus is heating engineers, the platform will be expanded to include work on solar panel installation, heat pumps (as opposed to traditional heating solutions), and even the installation of EV charging points.

Want to know more?

All you need to do is send us your CV; if you don’t have one ready then just send a PDF of your LinkedIn profile; if you are not on LinkedIn, start a word document and write a few lines about what you are working on now and why you think this might be interesting.
