Python Developer in Big Data and GIS space
We are a small business with a difference: we are backed by some of the largest VC and family office funds in the world and we work with some of the biggest companies to unleash the potential of data.
We don’t really know what it means to be Scotland’s “most exciting” or “fastest-growing” start-up as we have no way to measure ourselves like that. What we do know is we love coming to work, our customers can’t get enough of what we do and we have the potential to change the way global businesses gain disruptive insight from data.
We are a team of like-minded people who enjoy working hard and spending time together, both at work and socially. We are now scaling up our team to meet customer demand and are looking for talented individuals to join us.
Experience has taught us that you can achieve exponentially more with less if you have the right people. We like people who dare to be different – who like solving difficult problems and who have the ambition to reach their full potential (whatever that means to them).
We don’t really care how many years’ experience you have; it’s what you can do that matters, not how long you have been doing it. We reward our people based on the value they bring to the company and whilst it is difficult to tell, we think we offer the best reward package around. Did we mention the unlimited holidays and free stuff we all get?
You will be part of a small team doing exciting things with data and business intelligence.
You won’t be bored, nor micro-managed. You will be working with the best tools, practices and technology available. The tech stack is young, so you still have the opportunity to influence the development of a clean and modern ES6, React and Python 3 codebase.
We love everything Agile and your role will change daily. We have a dedicated in-house UX/UI design team that are reinventing the way business interacts with data so you will always have modern and fresh designs to bring to life.
From day one, your opinion matters; we value talent and we want you to have a voice in the company. We will be counting on you to bring your ideas and challenge the way things are done. We don’t believe in hierarchical management structures; every team member brings something to the table. You will be working in a great location just off Charlotte Square in central Edinburgh (although we’re happy for you to work from home when you need to).
We understand that it is not just about money; we believe it is a combination of things that our people value about our rewards:
Something not on the list? Great, just let us know! That’s the beauty of joining at this stage: you get to shape the company of the future.
We like to think big. Brainnwave is no place for the small minded. We celebrate individuality, uniqueness and diversity.
Everyone's personalities, experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and ideas have a huge impact on our culture and the products we build. We’re proud to be an employer where all of our staff can benefit from equal access to professional development and bring their entire personality to work.
A note to all agencies and recruiters:
We don’t want to be rude but we are running out of ways to politely say NO. On average we receive 3 calls a day from agencies. We know you are trying to help, and that you represent excellent candidates, but we simply don’t have the time to deal with so many calls so please don’t waste your time; the answer will always be a firm NO.
For more information and to apply please send your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we review your application (and assuming we’re keen to take things further) we’ll give you a ring and have a 20-30 minute chat on the phone.
If that goes well, we’ll get you in for a more in-depth chat face-to-face. This is usually around an hour an if it’s relevant, we’ll also ask you to do a small technical test on-site.
Brainnwave are a great example of how companies can deliver complex data science projects by leveraging their network, partnering with academia and by building the ecosystem of data experts. The Data Lab has been a partner with Brainnwave for several years and they have contributed greatly to the data driven innovation agenda for Scotland and have leveraged opportunities to build and grow their data talent and expand their capabilities significantly in both data science and artificial intelligence.
I have been championing, for some time now, the need to bring digital innovation from other industries into the housing sector. We are excited to be working with Brainnwave to apply their data intelligence technology to the housing sector. Their innovative approach to data and analytics, developing deep insights about our customers, has never been done before and will help us provide the best possible customer experience.
Brainnwave achieved more in 2 months with 4 analysts than a tier 1 consultancy achieved in 6 months with 6 people.
Brainnwave are a great team to work with. They put a focus on working collaboratively with us and they make sure that they’ve always understood what we need. Their solution has already saved a lot of time through the automation of organising, updating and sharing some of our day to day data (such as fuel prices) across the organisation.
Brainnwave are helping change the way we do business. The platform enables us to make more informed decisions. The platform Brainnwave are developing is using data analytics to provide us with the insights that we cannot access today due to the complexity of the questions we need to answer. This will be a game changer for our global business.
We are delighted to be working with our Partner, Brainnwave, on their new product, Geo Spatial Web Services. Brainnwave’s new product provides efficient access to our geospatial data providing users with the ability to analyse the data and generate strategic insights to aid their business.
Brainnwave has been instrumental in helping UNICEF understand how people move so we can coordinate relief assistance in a much better, more targeted way and can assist the population where the need is greatest.
I have always been a visual thinker and Brainnwave’s Ossian platform enables me to see things that were previously buried deep within reports; this helps me to react quickly to the business environment and make decisions with confidence.
