SALARY: £40-50k DOE

You will be working on a variety of projects for multinational B2B clients alongside other developers, strategists, designers and client services team.

As a senior developer you will be familiar with the full software lifecycle and comfortable taking ownership of and working independently on a project. You will be expected to work alongside our client services team to identify client requirements and plan projects.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in modern, well-tested object-oriented PHP development. You will have strong communication skills and be comfortable working in an agile, fast-paced environment. You will be familiar with the best practices for building resilient, secure applications and should have experience of the following:

  • Laravel or a similar PHP MVC framework (i.e. Symfony 2, Zend).
  • Design patterns and SOLID design principles.
  • Git and Git workflows
  • MySQL
  • Test driven development using PHPUnit or similar.
  • Some front-end experience (HTML5 / CSS / jQuery) – enough to build working prototypes
  • Good UNIX fundamentals: Apache/OpenSSL/Package management

In addition, the following would be beneficial:

  • REST API design / microservices architectures.
  • Managing servers in an AWS environment
  • Experience with any of the following: Node/MongoDB/Redis
  • Experience with Enterprise systems e.g. Salesforce/Eloqua

DevOps experience would be advantageous, particularly the use of Jenkins for continuous integration and Capistrano or similar for deployment.

A degree-level qualification is preferred, but not essential. However please note that this is not an entry-level position, we’re only really looking for candidates with either commercial experience, or a demonstrable record of open-source contributions.

This is an office-based role, and you must be authorised to work in the UK.
