What you will be doing
We are looking for driven, talented senior software engineers with knowledge of Python and object oriented programming to help us build our SaaS-based anti-money laundering solutions, which help organisations fight financial crime!

As a Senior Python Engineer, you will

Your work will allow our customers to find out who has done something bad, what they did, and when.
- Join one of our scrum teams and help us to make the right technical and architectural decisions as we evolve and scale our systems. As a Senior Software Engineer, we will look to you to sometimes take a lead in these discussions and bring your own ideas as well as solicit and incorporate ideas from others in the team.
- Write tests, and take ownership of the systems that ensure the quality of our code.
- Coach others in the team, sharing best practices and mentoring them.
As a Senior Python Engineer, you will have
- Experience writing production grade Python applications
- Awareness of a range of languages and paradigms, with the ability to coach/mentor juniors.
- Experience with high scale applications such as APIs dealing with large request volumes, or data processing pipelines
- Experience with Docker/containerisation and cloud infrastructure
- Ownership of software from idea inception to production.
- Experience working with tooling for testing, build and deployment pipelines (setting it up is a plus)
- Working understanding of logging, monitoring and alerting tooling (setting it up is a plus).

- Good communication and written skills including experience producing technical documentation.
