They are running on AWS and use GitLab for source control.

With this, we're looking to scale their development team with Engineers who have in-depth experience with Python and Django.

- Ability to work in a fast development environment and quickly adapt to changes
- Familiarity with continuous integration tools and agile development methodology, as well as version control tools such as Git
- Experience with Celery, Pyramid, SQLAlchemy is a big plus
- AWS, or other cloud provider experience
- Experience with database application development using PostgreSQL
- Experience developing high transaction/volume processing applications
- Messaging Framework/Complex Event Processing

Based in Dubai, this position is offering up to 30k AED p/month along with a host of benefits.

If you match the abovementioned qualifications/experience and are within the budget, please feel free to apply.
