LIVE IT - Junior Python & JavaScript Developer

  • CodeBase Edinburgh 38 Castle Terrace Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 9DZ United Kingdom (map)

Junior Python & JavaScript Developer


LIVE IT is looking for new developers to join our team in Edinburgh. Our full-service ticketing platform is trusted by festivals and event professionals around the world and we are looking for developers to help us grow and expand into new markets.

When you start, you’ll build familiarity with our platform through bug fixes, regression tests and small refactoring tasks, but quickly move on to projects where you can experience the full lifecycle from specification through to deployment and maintenance. For example, you might create a microservice to support a new feature, or rebuild some server-side functionality to operate entirely client-side.

We use a mentoring approach so you always have someone who will help you get up to speed, be a sounding board for your ideas and help you develop the skills you wish to grow.

You should be comfortable tackling everyday programming tasks in Python and/or JavaScript, along with building user interfaces with HTML and CSS. We would also like to see an awareness of basic user experience and accessible design principles. Experience with Docker, Django, Flask and Vue.js will help you get up to speed quickly.

We are a small collaborative team based in CodeBase, right next to Edinburgh Castle. Everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and everyone is given the support to succeed. The team operates in sprints where we get together to discuss and assign tasks. We take turns picking first, so you’ll get to choose tasks that interest you and have the opportunity to branch out.

This is an office-based full-time role, but you will have the autonomy to work flexibly (and we usually all work from home on Fridays). We offer a great salary, share options and 25 days holiday plus bank holidays on top. There’s a staff perks scheme and you can join us for a free team lunch once a week. On joining, you’ll get a generous equipment budget for your laptop and any other kit you might need.

Ideally, you’ll have a degree in computer science or a related field, but we are happy to consider your application if you can demonstrate an understanding of core computer science concepts through a portfolio of work.

How to apply

  • Email with the subject “Developer Application: [your name]”

  • In your email, tell us about two projects you feel best demonstrate your programming ability. These can be in any language and could be professional work (that you have permission to share), academic coursework, hobby projects, or programming puzzles. Provide links to source code (eg GitHub), a description of the task and the challenges you faced.

  • Attach your CV as a PDF.

Unfortunately we are not offering visa sponsorship for this role, so you will need the right to work in the UK.
