On top of that, you'll need:
- Experience with Postgresql or other relational databases
- Above all, you'll need to be a natural problem-solver with a passion for learning.
Bonus points are in order if you have one or more of these:
- Experience with testing (Pytest, Selenium) and continuous integration
- Experience in building and deploying web applications with DockerFamiliarity with Linux and Amazon Web Services (EC2)
Once you’re here, we’re committed to continuing your learning and development. We have a great track record of promoting from within, and if you’re interested in something we'll support you with courses and conferences (e.g. PyCon, DjangoCon, PyData) as well as monthly data science workshops.
We’re thrilled to have launched a substantial options scheme, giving you the chance to share in Beauhurst’s growth and success.
We’re all working hard to achieve our goals but we encourage a healthy working week and are happy to accommodate flexible hours.
