I am currently recruiting for a Python Software Engineer / Developer for a key client based in central Newcastle.

They are happy to consider candidates from C#, C++, Java etc backgrounds as long as you are happy to cross train, learn and pick up Python development skills. You will undergo Python software development courses / training at the start of your employment with them and work alongside experienced Python Software Engineers to help with your progress.

A solid software engineering background is needed.

What my client are looking for:

* Strong "Software Engineering" fundamentals and practical experience

* Commercial experience of software development in Python

* Strong Object Oriented skills (e.g. from C#, C++, Java or similar)

* Good database knowledge of SQL, NoSQL or PostgreSQL

* Unit test frameworks

* Strong practice of TDD development principles and continuous integration

* Exposure to Nginx, Redis, Elastic Search or RabbitMQ would be really beneficial

* Exposure to continuous integration, build tools (Jenkins, Ansible) and scripting

* Use of source code version control - Git, Subversion or Mercurial

It is a very collaborative, knowledge sharing, friendly, no egos or politics environment, with a relaxed dress code (shorts & flip flops?) with lots of little perks such as free breakfast and fruit (fully stocked kitchen).

Some would say their staff are the best around from a technical perspective (and interesting outside of work too!), you work hard but get a lot back in return.

They are offering excellent basic salaries plus benefits.
