YouGov is searching for a Remote Python Developer to collaborate building a modern and large-scale cloud-based analytics platform built for the web, entirely in Python.

<section>

From the beginning we had one simple idea: the more people are able to participate in the decisions made by the institutions that serve them, the better those decisions will be. We are a global online community for millions of people, and thousands of organisations, to engage in a continuous conversation about their beliefs, behaviours and brands, and provide a more accurate portrait of what the world thinks.

What will I be doing?

  • Working on the data transformation and transmitting the data, making assurances about the integrity of it
  • Our data flows handle more than 30 million data points every week, you will be central on the delivery of that data to our analytics team
  • Work primarily on backend, middleware and databases but everyone in the team regularly works on the full stack.
  • Optimization on memory management and speed is crucial given the scale and speed we want to bring to our platforms and clients.

  • Basic understanding of MongoDB, Django & PostgreSQL
