Our Shoreditch HQ is located within five minutes of no fewer than six of the finest flat white vendors in London. If the large, open, light, bike-friendly office isn't enough for you, head out to the larger of our two roof terraces, which is perfectly oriented for gazing over the City of London skyscrapers in order to appreciate how fortunate we are not to work there. Then pop back inside, via a kitchen stocked with fresh organic fruit we get delivered weekly, to attempt to make your way up the table football ladder.
1+ years experience with Python.
Highly proficient in a Unix/Linux environment.
Solid understanding of the full web technology stack (e.g. HTTP, cookies, headers, asset loading / caching).
Understanding of CS concepts such as: common data structures and algorithms, profiling/optimization.
Ideally knowledge of ecommerce and/or online fashion.
