This is a chance to join a close-knit team with a great team environment, where you will have the opportunity to work on a varied range of great projects and pick up the highly sought after Laravel and Vue.js frameworks from day one!
One of the major projects they have lined up is an in-house booking system for a cruise ship company, which has over a million visitors each year. At the moment it is built in the old ExpressionEngine CMS platform. They are looking to rebuild this from the ground up using Laravel and Vue.js. This massive project will take years to complete and they need more PHP developers to help them with this complex task.
You’ll join one of the two development teams within the company - the team who are programming behind the scenes of websites and heavy database lead web applications, which manage large parts of the business processes for some amazing clients. You’ll be working with the latest techs for the best possible backend solutions, with a little frontend stuff using Vue.js.
The role itself will see you working on a range of projects, from booking systems that have an annual turnover of £100+ million which are used nationwide, to training course management systems for international corporations, to eCommerce sites. Here you can fully immerse yourself in some of the projects they have lined up and become a specialist on the systems you work on. As you become a specialist, you will be picking up a range of desirable skills such as the Laravel, plus you’ll be working with other PHP based systems, which you can also add to your skillset.
Not only this, you will be introducing brand new features and improving the functionality of other systems for a small group of clients. This may involve the migration of eCommerce sites into the more common WooCommerce, or it could be migrating older systems which are procedural in nature, to a Laravel codebase. In either case, there is a lot more scope to experiment than you would find in a typical agency because of the collaborative approach to problems.
The company prides itself on a collaborative environment where developers have the freedom to do things differently, with a can-do attitude. There is a strong support network of senior developers to help you with any issues or mental blocks you might have. The company encourages discussion on suggested solutions. There are monthly developer meetings where you will discuss the development work and processes of current projects, and also discuss good working practices people might have.
They want people with experience with:
- MVC (they use Laravel)
If you have a decent amount of experience with the skills listed above, then please send over your CV!
This is a fantastic chance to work on some of the biggest projects you may ever undertake in your career as they could take years to complete! As well as picking up some of the latest techs along the way, you’ll be facing these interesting challenges with a collaborative group of developers knowing that you are all working to achieve the same goal.
