How to find Python Developers with Boolean search strings

When you want to hire Python Developers, Boolean search can help you find qualified candidates to strengthen your pipeline. Modify our sample search strings to find professionals who can write code in Python for scripts, web applications and other programs.


Generic search string to find Python Developers

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) (“python developer” OR “python engineer”) -job -jobs -sample -examples


(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) (developer OR engineer) Python -job -jobs -sample -examples

The first string looks for candidates who refer to themselves as “Python Developer” or “Python Engineer.” The second string looks for any kind of Developer or Engineer who knows Python.

Use the OR operator to expand your search to similar job titles. Use intitle: and inurl: to look for the word “resume” (or variations like “cv” and “bio”) in page titles and page urls respectively. The NOT (-) operator helps exclude irrelevant results like resume writing services.


Searching for Python Developer profiles

Use Boolean strings to look through social media or websites by including the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “python developer” “member since”
  • “python developer” “joined on”
  • “badges” “python developer”

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
