PHP Developer
Up to £65,000

Interested in microservice architecture, API’s and backend development? Looking for a largely remote role where you can get your teeth stuck into big projects and help modernise and shape the technical direction of the team?

Yes and yes? Well it’s a good job you’ve landed on this advert as I am recruiting for an award winning branding specialist who offer exactly that!

They are currently underway with a massive re-platforming project which will see them move away from monolithic PHP to a microservice driven set up. They will be replacing core parts of their back office, including their warehouse management system and their eCommerce application. We’re looking for someone to play a key part in these projects, putting their ideas forward to find the best build solution. It's a small development team where collaboration and knowledge sharing is valued by all.

Why you should apply:

  • You’ll have built in R&D time and access to funded certifications
  • You can influence the tech strategy and stack
  • You only need to be in the office once a month, if that
  • The projects are big, complex and interesting
  • Their tech stack includes CI/CD tools, AWS, Docker, Laravel, Lumen, React, Microservices, TestCafe etc.

We’re looking for a mid or senior level developer with the following knowledge and experience:

  • PHP
  • OOP
  • Design patterns
  • MVC - ideally Laravel
  • REST API’s
  • Unit, feature and E2E testing
  • Git

Their office is based in Manchester and very close to the local motorway networks. There’s also tram access and regular buses so it’s an easy one to get to for the odd day you’re in the office.

To give you an idea of the learning potential and qualifications you can attain here, one of the team has recently become AWS certified and another has just completed an intensive React course. With time set aside each week for research and self-learning, with access to Pluralsight and other resources, this is the perfect role for any passionate PHP developer. The company is growing and improving and now is your chance to be part of it.

This is one not to be missed so please do apply now - interviews will be taking place remotely.
