We’re currently searching for a Python Engineer to drive our application and services development. You will be tasked with designing and building cutting edge applications, analytics, API’s and Micro Services using Python. You’ll be involved in many aspects– helping evolve our existing architecture, working with teams to improve operations, and implementing new features and functionality.

You are a self-reliant but proactive individual contributor capable of taking tasks from start to completion with minimal help. You will familiarise yourself with our domain and product in detail.

As a member of our team, you must have hands on coding experience with Python.

In joining us you’ll bring with you experience, innovation and a results-oriented approach.

It is of importance that the right candidate is naturally inquisitive with a “build in” desire to learn and understand the maritime sector to a degree whereby the candidate can participate and challenge the development and go to market strategy.

We will provide the right candidate with a strong induction program but it is essential that the candidate will pursue additional knowledge by self-learning.
