Middleweight PHP developer

Middleweight PHP Developer

We are looking for a middleweight PHP developer to expand our team. We need someone with a good knowledge of PHP, MySQL, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and AJAX . Ideally you'll have a good understanding of modern coding conventions such as OOP and have used one of the MVC frameworks. You'll be accustomed to building bespoke websites and applications from start to finish, writing well structured modular code, and you'll also know when to look for pre-written scripts and libraries to speed things along. You'll work to very high standards and consider security, performance and cross-platform reliability in everything you do. If you've got experience in using GIT as well that would be a bonus.

The person

Ideally you'll have a few years experience under your belt already, but more crucially you'll be passionate about solving problems and building things. You'll probably have an account with Github or Bitbucket where you're in the middle of a pet project or six. You'll also understand the value of planning and thinking ahead in development, and how that can save you painting yourself into a corner later on. For more on what we think makes a great developer, check out this blog post.

The role

As a middleweight developer you'll help fill out our small but perfectly formed development team. You'll be asked to undertake maintenance on existing client websites, as well as undertaking new projects, helping with putting together estimates for new work, and peer testing the output of others - but apart from that the role will shape around you. We're also really big on training and development, so there'll always be ways for you to add more strings to your bow; and because we're a small team you'll be able to really make your mark and influence not just where your own role goes, but where the company goes as a whole!

Ideally we're looking for someone full time, on-site for this role - but we will consider part-time hours or remote working for the right candidate.
