Python jobs at Rangespan

Jonathan Hartley
Hey folks,

We seemed to decide the list is happy with a few appropriate job posts. My new employer is hiring, and I'm excited about working here, so I thought I'd share this with the list:

Rangespan is a six month old Python-oriented startup, currently around ten people, based in Paddington Station, London.

In my first two weeks here I've been impressed by the high standards of quality and the company's vaulting ambition. We provide high-scale e-commerce technology to create a revolutionary marketplace between major online retailers, and a vast network of suppliers, transacting across millions of products daily. Development has progressed enough to start deploying and demonstrating the reality of this vision, but is still early enough that all of us have a substantial effect on the future of the company.

We're looking for developers at a variety of levels, with strong computer science backgrounds, and either stellar academic record or proven industry experience. We'd like to see the sort of high profile that comes with expertise and a pro-active attitude: Python core contributors, conference speakers, open source contributors & project leaders, thoughtful agile evangelists, and scalability experts. We'll need a data scientist, too.

The sort of experience we're looking for includes:
  • Highly fluent in Python, experienced with Django, Amazon Web Services, MySQL and MongoDB.
  • Ability to contribute to an Agile environment, introducing new practices, refining our process, being strong on testing and TDD.
  • Expertise in architecting, coding & deploying RESTful web services & web applications.
  • Automated deployments to EC2.
  • Provisioning new hardware and debugging live code.
  • Ability to attract additional world-class software developers.
  • BS, MS or PhD degree in Computer Science or equivalent field.
The founders are ex-Amazon executives and engineers, and bring a wealth of commercial and operational expertise. While the atmosphere is informal and affable, the technical team is intimidatingly proficient. We don't use recruiters, because they don't match up to the quality of candidates we insist upon. To quote one of our founders "It's critical to the success of our business to create the highest quality engineering team possible."

Sorry I can't be specific about salary but it would vary widely depending on the applicant's experience. Suffice to say my personal offer was highly competitive for any industry outside of the city banks, plus for senior roles there would be equity involved, which I judged to be really attractive.

I'm happy to answer casual questions personally, or take receipt of applications. Our formal job postings information is here: http://rangespan.com/jobs/ but in practice I think we'd be a little flexible about roles for the right applicant.

Best regards,

    Jonathan

Re: Python jobs at Rangespan

Menno Smits
Hey JB,

I've been meaning to ask you how it's going at Rangespan. You sound
pretty psyched about the job which is fantastic. What kind of stuff have
you been working on so far? Is the working style quite different from
Resolver? (do you do TDD, pair-programming etc?)

We just got back yesterday from California. Susanna had a conference to
go to at Stanford but we also spent some time in San Fran, Yosemite and
Napa Valley. It was a pretty fast paced trip, especially with Amelia
(shattered now), but it was a lot of fun. Yosemite was the highlight for
me - it's just stunning.

Hopefully see you soon... M

ps. Christian and one of the other guys from work are in Florence at
Europython - somewhat jealous :(

Hey Luis,

Thanks very much for the c.v. Very best of luck with the move to London. Whatever happens, we should go our for lunch or a beer, to welcome you to England!

I'll wait a day or two to see what else our many job postings gather and then let everyone know what we're thinking.

Best regards,

    Jonathan
