We are looking for a self-starter; someone who rolls up their sleeves and gets the job done. The autonomy attached to this role requires an individual with the necessary initiative and curiosity to think through a problem and deliver a solution. You will be responsible for helping to deliver cutting edge functionality and a great user experience.

This role is hands on and will involve primarily Python development using the Django framework, however you will need to be able to program in any modern language and experience of HTML, CSS and JavaScript is essential. There may be opportunities to develop using other technologies such as React.js, so a passion for learning different technologies is a must.

As a senior developer you will need to design, develop, test, analyse, and maintain the QV Systems products in support of the business function, ensuring that the needs of the users and business are met whilst adhering to any SLAs that are in place.

You will need to be flexible and work with all areas of the business performing various tasks; we're a start-up so everyone is expected to muck in.

Most importantly, you will be maintaining QV Systems' excellent reputation. We are a young company with strong values and to fit in you will need to be ambitious, flexible, trustworthy and hungry for success.

In return we will give you great tools, a relaxed working environment and exposure to a wide range of experiences which will allow you to develop the skills necessary for a successful career with us.
