Interested candidates should show the aptitude to pick up new ideas and processes and the willingness to learn and be part of a proactive team.

  • Solid background using Python and / or C++ on Linux. Exposure to PHP would be desirable.
  • Understanding of REST APIs, MySQL and the mechanics behind large scale data analytics.

Note the role is not suitable for graduates without any relevant work experience. However, graduates who can evidence their relevant experience are invited to apply. We are also interested in developers who are looking for their next role and are interested in this position.
