Job Title

Senior Software Engineer, Full-Stack

Job Description

Datapane ( is looking for an exceptional senior full-stack engineer to join our team.

This is a product-focused role with extensive scope, and you should be excited to be shipping features across the stack, including:

  • Building the core backend platform of the Datapane hosted platform, which enables hosting, sharing, billing, multi-tenant user management, and authN/authZ. This is a modern Django 4 web application built with Python 3.10, Redis, and Postgres and running on Kubernetes.
  • Taking ownership of our REST API, which is built using Django Rest Framework (DRF) and is used both by our web-app and client libraries to build and execute data science reports and apps
  • Designing and developing the data model for the Datapane, along with its supporting views, serializers and APIs, to support a large-scale multi-tenant PaaS
  • Helping us scale Datapane to support the challenges in being the most popular data science hosting platform, including HTTP caching, redis / app caching, horizontal scaling, and more.
  • Building front-end views for our MPA using Django templates, htmx, django-unicorn, (predominantly inline) Vue.js, and TailwindCSS to create amazing product experiences. This will involve collaborating with our technical Product Designer to ship features using Basecamp’s Shape Up framework.
  • Automating how we build front-end views and templates to expose our backend primitives, to enable us to ship features fast with minimal boilerplate and the right abstractions.
  • Working with data-based applications, files and APIs, e.g. CAS storage, Apache Arrow files, ingesting datasets, along with collaborating with our infrastructure team on serverless execution of customers' data science workloads.

You should feel comfortable at the challenge of helping architect and build backend systems which cover the above and should have a love of shipping amazing products to users.

What technologies will you be working with?

You will be working with Python, Django, Postgres, Redis, and Kubernetes and be interfacing with our core reporting library and PaaS. On the view side, you will be working with HTML5 templates, Typescript, htmx, and Vue.js.

Company Benefits

  • Fully remote
  • Flexi-working
  • Share options
  • Individual Learning and Development budget
  • Laptop of choice
  • Individual annual remote working budget
  • Co-working allowance
  • Workplace pension
  • Quarterly team hackathons at locations across the UK


  • Telecommuting is OK
  • No Agencies Please


As this is a unique role, we are open-minded about what a perfect candidate looks like, and aren’t hiring specifically based on experience with the above technologies. We are open to senior, lead, or principal software engineers who have deep expertise in working full-stack across backends.

  • 6+ years experience working with full-stack backends – ideally Django, but we’re open to candidates with deep experience of similar frameworks such as Rails and Laravel.
  • Experience with front-end frameworks such as Vue, React, Angular, or Svelte would be beneficial.
  • You have led a project from scratch. This could be a side-project, a company, or something in a previous day job.
  • Experience building and designing HTTP APIs, and deep knowledge of the web stack in general
  • Experience architecting complete systems, including design of data models, databases, and caching
  • Knowledge of progressive enhancement techniques such as htmx, LiveWire, and django-unicorn
  • Familiarity with modern development practices, such as CI/CD, git, DevOps, Cloud architectures, Docker, and general Linux sysadmin knowledge.
  • Knowledge of Pandas, numpy, arrow and the associated Python data science and visualisation stack would be useful
  • You should be interested in building large-scale, performant web applications. You should like the idea of releasing to real customers regularly, and prioritise getting a great product into users’ hands for feedback and iteration. You will have extensive scope to build and architect the backend, and to help grow the team in the future.

Note this role is remote, but we are hiring in the UK and Europe only. Please do not apply if you are not within these geographies.
