    Are you ready to take part in the development of one of the fastest growing European Fintech companies?

    If you are passionate about developing Python code, we are looking for a Python developer to join our cross-functional team.

    We are passionate about development and enjoy clean code, continuous deployments and regular integration.

    We believe that automation and tooling play a critical role in software development.

    We build the core of Ebury products, services and API, all developed in Python / Django.

    We work with an Agile methodology, doing iterations of two weeks and delivery features using a release train process that happens every week.

    Here at Ebury, we have a flat structure. This means teams join various different steps of the production process in a proactive way all while being in permanent contact with teammates. Our ideal candidate needs strong teamwork skills and needs to be hungry to leave their mark in this sector.

    ABOUT YOU

    • You love clean code. You understand that writing beautiful and readable code is the key to building a great product, and you are able to follow industry best practices.

    • Work with cross-functional teams across the company to build new features at large-scale.

    • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes.

    • Think about systems and services and write high-quality code. We work in Python, however, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.

    • You will contribute to evolving legacy code on our brand-new back-end stack.

    • All of these run smoothly in Docker containers on AWS.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • 5+ years of professional software development experience using Python
