Python Jobs

13 May 2005

This is a sort of a deja vu thought but I'm going to write it anyway.

There seems to be quite a hunt for Python guys in India, especially Bangalore. Jace's client Partecs is looking for people who want to work on Python, Zope, Plone, Javascript, XHTML, CSS, Ajax, Usability, Open Source, Affero GPL, Subversion, Blogs, Wikis, vCalendar, i18n, and l10n (yep, quite a mouthful).

Last I heard, even Pradeep was looking for people interested in Zope/Plone to join his team at Mindscape Computing.

And you really shouldn't miss looking at the Ubuntu Community bounties - you could get paid for working on Python scripting interfaces for OpenOffice, Blender, AbiWord, Gnumeric, and GIMP. Of course, it doesn't matter where you live if you want to work on these bounties :)

Damn, I wish these kind of things had happened when I was a student....

Not totally unrelated, I'd like to stress that Yahoo! Bangalore is looking for good people with MySQL knowledge.

Open Source pays. Truly.

Update on June 27, 2009 : 4 years after writing this entry, I still get questions regarding Python Jobs in India. I think the best places to start looking for them are pythonjobs.blogspot.com, Bixee Python Job list and Official Python website's Job Listings.

Update on July 21, 2011 : Also taaza.com.

I hope here in the Philippines will adopt Python as a primary programming language which MS dominates.

I was googling for 'python jobs' and landed up here. :-) Dude, I got bored with working on Java and looking for a change.

Swaroop says:

@Sridhar: You're bound to get bored with one technology or the other some time, whether it's Java or C++ or whatever. It only matters whether the work you do is interesting or not. Right? :-)

srid says:

If you choose to be that way (compromise over interesting work), then yes. But I do agree that interesting-work is the fundamental requirement for geeks.

Ashish says:

Hi ! I just Want to ask that What are the Opportunities in Python for a fresher ,and what is its future ...
specially in India.

Swaroop says:

@Ashish: Two years after I wrote this, I think there is good opportunity for Python programmers, but not in the big companies. You'll have to look for these opportunities. However, a fresher will have it tough because the small companies are more comfortable with someone who's already had some professional experience, so that it reduces their risks.
