I am working with a really cool growing SAAS provider. They have built a powerful, easy-to-use system

We are looking for an experienced PHP developer to join us at this exciting time at a senior level, reporting to the Lead developer.

  • Excellent understanding of both OO and procedural PHP
  • Very good understanding of MySQL or other relational database
  • Good working knowledge of Javascript and jQuery
  • Good understanding of vanilla CSS
  • Familiarity with a Linux command line and relevant tools
  • Experience of working with - and refactoring - legacy code
  • Experience of working with enterprise-level or mission-critical applications
  • Experience of working with GIT
  • Experience of working with a ticketing/bug-tracking system
  • Experience of a testing framework, with the ability to talk intelligently about it

We are looking for someone with

  • A track record of working with complex web applications
  • A product rather than project focus
  • The ability to prioritise multiple, competing demands
  • An understanding of design patterns and when to implement them
  • Excellent attention to detail, with a rigorous approach to coding
  • The ability to translate specifications into software, and software problems into ordinary


  • The desire to join a small company with big ambitions

In return, we can offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • The opportunity to develop your skills
  • The opportunity to work on all parts of the system, from front-end graphics to back-end mathematics
