PHP Developer - Trafford Park - Up To £40,000 + Bonus + Flexible Working + 7% Pension + 25 Days Holiday + Healthcare

What we have here is a PHP role where you can have a huge impact on the direction of the tech stack, the systems and the team. We’re looking for an experienced PHP developer to help the company modernise their core systems - they want your ideas and your input.

You’ll be joining a team who have a backlist of projects to clear through, all of which will see you writing brand new solutions and code. They will then move on to overhauling all of their existing systems.

Firstly you’ll be focusing on writing solutions which will be very data heavy, you will be working with the team to write new code to improve how the business revenue is calculated and collected. You’ll also be coming up with solutions around invoicing and how projects are tracked on their large workflow management system.

Once these changes are in place your focus will be on modernising the core systems, this is an absolutely huge project and one that will prove very challenging. As a senior, you’ll be involved in architectural designs and decisions and coming up with solutions around both database and application design. They are completely open to what framework they use moving forward, they want your suggestions and advice on this.

What’s on offer:

  • A 7% pension!
  • A company bonus scheme
  • Flexible working
  • 25 days holiday
  • Cash healthcare plan

This is a highly charitable company, they are big believers in helping the local community. They have previously invested money into helping the unemployed get into work by working closely with local job centres and providing training courses. If you love coding but would love to see all your hard work going to something worthwhile, this is the prime opportunity for that.

Must have experience:

  • PHP7
  • MySQL
  • OOP/Design Patterns
  • JavaScript/jQuery

They are moving to SRE architecture for core business logic and following SOLID and other design patterns. They use the full LAMP stack, Redhat 6.9, PHPUnit, Vue.JS and they are currently experimenting with Elastic Search, Mongo, RabbitMQ and plenty of others.

The role will heavily be weighted towards the backend, there may be the odd bit of frontend work in there and it will involve working on new website code and a huge, huge, huge database.

The top two things about this role are firstly the control it will give you. We are very much looking for an ideas man or woman, someone who loves a good tech challenge and someone who believes in best practice and coding standards and someone who fully understands OOP. Secondly, how charitable this company is and the amount of good they do, makes this company stand out head and shoulders above others. They are based near to Trafford Park, have parking on site and a tram stop next door - easy whether you are coming from town or further afield as they are near the M60!

Please send your CV across to apply and I’ll be in touch to tell you all about them, their plans and the opportunity! Becca Woods - Chassam Recruitment
