We're looking for an ambitious and talented Python developer to join our team of three developers managing triple-digit annual growth and tackling tough online booking, search and geo challenges. We’re all about collaboration – you’ll take part in regular brainstorms as the company grows rapidly, and gain direct experience of the rapid evolution of a high-profile growth company, working alongside experts in an apolitical, friendly environment.
Pitchup.com is the market leading online booking site for campsites and caravan parks, with over 1,200 sites available in 14 European countries and plans for global expansion.
More Brits go camping and caravanning than holiday in Spain and Greece combined, and the market is booming as Brits switch to domestic holidays. Now, we're expanding into Europe and further afield.
Judged Best UK Travel Site at the 2011 British Travel Press Awards, Pitchup.com receives up to 70,000 visits and over 1,000 bookings per day. The company is profitable and was founded in 2009 by former lastminute.com staff with a background in the holiday park sector.
Cool stuff we’ve done recently include launching our new mobile site and app and being cited at the recent W3C/ODI/OKF Open Data on the Web event for our use of public transport and attraction data. Behind the scenes we’ve built some pretty nice features to help campsite owners manage their vacancies and encourage them to sign up.
We’re based in the award-winning Barley Mow Centre off the Chiswick High Road (nearest tubes Turnham Green, Gunnersbury) and are a lively friendly team with bags of experience. We want someone similar to join us – is that you?
Backend stack: Python / Django / Postgres / Celery / nginx / S3 Salary: £35,000 - £65,000, dependent on experience
