Polygot JavaScript Developer with Go experience, and a desire to jump into other languages

Job ref: OSC1000 - Location: London

Did you ever read that _7 Programming Languages in 7 Weeks_ book? I loved that book when I read it a few years back, and I’ve written production code in five of those seven languages now. If I could have found legitimate uses for Io and Prolog, I’d be seven for seven.

Some people have a sheer, unadulterated love of the act of programming itself, and moving between different stacks, solving problems in different ways … those are what gets them up in the morning.

My client has a stack of different codebases in different languages, and are looking for a bright developer who can learn and then leverage the strengths of each in their day-to-day role. They’re a small but friendly team who’ve been in business for a long time, and more than one personal friend of mine has worked there or is currently working there, and have nothing but good things to say.

Beyond being a strong NodeJS developer, you’ll need to have had some Golang experience. Python and exposure to Django would also be a strong selling point. You should have a strong understanding of both regular and NoSQL databases (they use MySQL and Google BigTable extensively), and a feel for some basic Linux Sysadmin skills would be a bonus too.
