SOFTWARE DEVELOPER (Python)

We believe DOING GOOD IS GOOD BUSINESS. With a wealth of experience and expertise spanning all corners of the globe, we balance our time between our own business ventures and working with multinational corporations. We have brought our collective talent and passion to Newton Circus in hopes of embedding sustainability into everything we do. So what exactly is it that we do? Good question. Simply put, we make meaningful things in responsible ways. We focus on key drivers of global change, including climate change, environmental degradation, poverty, development, natural resource scarcity, healthcare, migration and urbanization. These drivers inspire us to create products, services and applications that are good for people, planet and profit. The production and consumption of goods and services can only flourish if they are within our social and ecological limits. It is the cornerstone of our business and a guiding principle of sustainability. Consumers are asking for it, governments are regulating it and any business that has a long-term commitment to maximizing shareholders returns has already laid the foundation for a sustainable future. Sustainability has evolved from the niche to the masses. The mainstream consumer has shown an overwhelming propensity to support products, brands, companies and retailers whom are committed to responsible business practices. Of course, these consumers do not want to sacrifice anything in the process. It must be the same price and quality as the competition. But when you deliver and substantially improve the product or service in a sustainable manner, consumers will reward you. If embedding sustainability into your company and improving your bottom line is something you are interested in, welcome to Newton Circus.
