On the back of a new round of funding they’re now looking for an ambitious Back-end Python Developer to work closely with Data Scientists and Data Engineers to help build some of the product and automate the data pipeline.

  • You’re familiar with GIS (e.g. postgis) 
  • You have experience handling large datasets 
  • You’re familiar with pandas, numpy and/or scikit-learn
