Additional Manager Comments

  • At the moment, the role is almost exclusively python as our two production systems are almost exclusively python.
  • However, SQL knowledge is equally important to python as database querying is heavily used.
  • Finally, shell scripting and general familiarity with Linux and its command line tools is also very important as the hire will need to be able to quickly navigate folders and files, selectively search for specific data.
  • Both of these skills are generally what would be expected for any support-centric role.
  • Adding Java to the mix will increase the desired rate substantially so we only need someone with some familiarity in Java for now.
