Job description

Oscatel is hiring a Python Developer to design and implement web back end solutions for a range of projects that underpin operational services for mobile carriers.

We're an established software provider that's bringing development back in house. We're building modular, scalable, solutions - many of which will become long-term products - mainly around operational support services for carriers, and all of which we will help you get to grips with.

The domain entails data-intensive services where security, data integrity and uptime are key. This presents lots of interesting design and coding challenges as we build and integrate our technology.

You can anticipate a mix of well-defined greenfield projects, initially focused on implementing the back end and data solution for a large customer deliverable, along with substantial exploratory work as we validate concepts and build new solutions, maturing these into products.

We offer a culture where you may work under your own initiative as part of a collaborative effort towards common goals. It's an opportunity to be a formative team member, and to grow and improve together.

Early projects within the team

  • Building out SMS messaging modules; 2FA analytics, billing, routing, dashboard
  • Data management methods to produce analytics and alerting tools
  • Working towards adoption of containers and Kubernetes
  • Adopting GraphQL
  • Helping establish our development culture, methods and automation

Salary and benefits

  • £45,000 - £60,000+ we're keeping an open mind
  • 25 days holiday, plus public holidays and a day for your birthday
  • Flexible working - tell us what you need
  • One/two days' remote working each week, once up to speed
  • Modern serviced office with a canteen, showers, bike parking
  • Personal development plan that you can shape, with budget for related training/certifications

Location: central Bristol - Gloucester Road, well served by public transport and with great amenities nearby


We're looking for

  • Someone able to write code that's efficient, robust, documented and well tested
  • Strong Python, accrued in a modern web back end context
  • Familiarity with Flask/similar
  • A microservice-based approach, with API design abilities, and strong SQL/MySQL
  • Ability to master complex requirements, to uphold security of sensitive data and to conform to best practices
  • Someone considering mid level back end Python jobs in Bristol such as: Python Developer | Python Software Developer | Python Software Engineer | Back End Developer etc.

Current ecosystem - we'll welcome your influence

Python, Flask, Pandas, SQLAlchemy | Node.js | Elasticsearch | RabbitMQ | MySQL | Docker | AWS | Linux | Atlassian stack
