Python Developer

Location: Leeds, United Kingdom

The Role

Crisp provides vital risk intelligence services to global brands and social media platforms by helping them understand the complex challenges emerging from people and groups communicating online. Our services protect the daily online experiences of over 2.5 billion users, of which 400-450 million are children.

Crisp tracks and understands what ‘Bad Actors’ are saying to build accurate profiles and use predictive and behavioural analytics to identify trends and identify the “unknown unknowns”. Crisp’s proprietary technology then does the heavy lifting by scanning the web continuously, capturing billions of pieces of data on this select cohort of individuals.

This role is working in our Data Collection team which means that we will consider candidates from either a Python or C# background as these technologies are part of our wider ecosystem. Some element of the project is written in Java so there is an opportunity for you to train onto this - how good is that? The test framework is written in Python so if your background is C# you will again pick up skills in this area.

In response to COVID -19, these roles will be hybrid so therefore working from home where necessary but also being flexible to work from our Leeds office. Applicants therefore must be in a position to work from their home and have a secure workstation appropriate for home working for an extended period.

Our rewards are as unique as our culture, and we want to attract the best people and retain them.
