Sapentia is looking to recruit an  Odoo Developer

To apply check out the details below and send Colin a copy of your C.V. and a 'letter' telling us why you will be great at this post.


Odoo Developer £40,000 – 50,000 p.a.

Job Overview

Sapentia is a rapidly growing company that delivers Odoo Business Software solutions in the UK. Sapentia holds Gold Partner status with Odoo, 1 of only 3 Gold Partners in the UK.

In order to meet the needs of our growing client base Sapentia needs a Software Developer to join our technical team. If you are dedicated and motivated, Sapentia is an excellent place to develop your skills and grow your career.

In this role you’ll be working mainly in Python and JavaScript, using the Odoo framework.

We are looking for someone that has 2 years commercial Python experience.  However we recognise that the best programmers are those who truly understand the craft of software development, not just the syntax of a particular language.

Aim of the Post

You will join one of our teams and participate in the implementation and support of its project portfolio. You will work closely with the client, our in house Odoo Specialists and other developers on the team to advance our clients business systems.

Main duties and responsibilities

  • You assist the team to ensure support to our customers.
  • Manage source control.
  • Deploy the applications as required.
  • Write automatic unit and functional tests to ensure good coverage of projects and their smooth evolution.
  • Write quality code which is secure and maintainable while respecting functional requirements as well as budget and deadlines.
  • Code new software modules or contribute to existing ones, mainly in Python, HTML/XML and JavaScript if applicable.
  • Understand the functional needs of customers in the implementation of their software solution.

Software Developer Officer skills and attitudes

The successful appointee will have the following essential skills and attitudes

  • A can do attitude
  • Experience working in Python and JavaScript
  • 3 – 5 years experience of software development
  • The ability to team work with other developers
  • Eager to learn new skills and technologies
  • Able to create secure and maintainable code
  • Experience using an ORM
  • Ability to manage source control

  • Experience of test driven development
  • Be able to self-organise and administer
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Knowledge of the Odoo Framework

Whatever language you currently code in, we’d expect you to know how to use an ORM, understand object oriented programming and design, be comfortable with test driven development, and have experience of using source control.

It would be ideal if you could give us some examples of software you’ve developed, such as any open source contributions, videos or on-line documentation you’ve made, or your GitHub profile. As a team of multiple developers, it’s very important that code you write is easy for others to read and extend.

We operate test-driven development, code to proper specifications, and keep up to date with technology. Developers are the most important part of our business - without a great technical delivery team, we would not be able to handle the complex and varied challenges; with the right people we know that if it is possible, we can make it happen.

Software Developer

The post is offered a £40000 – 50,000 with 24 days annual leave + statutory holidays.
