Matthew Pearce

Senior PHP Developer

My client are part of the digital transformation of the educational system.

They provide specialist products and services to exam boards around the world enabling them to deliver valid and reliable assessments, and improving the quality, efficiency and security of their operations.

Both products have been really well received, therefore there is now a further greenfield project kicking off in Bristol which we are looking for a leader to take ownership of.

They are using cutting edge tools and are proud of the solutions which are built on a passion for educational improvement, exceptional usability and expertise in the following technologies:

Technical Landscape

  • Front end: HTML5, Bootstrap, SASS, JavaScript and AngularJS
  • Server side: Apache, PHP5, Laravel and other libraries where required
  • Data layer: MongoDB and Elasticsearch
  • Platform: AWS and MongoLabs
  • Deployment: Automation of continuous deployment is handled by Composer, Node, Bower, GIT,, Jenkins and PHPUnit

Code base is built on PHP / AngularJS, and our solution is business (enterprise scale).

The candidate we are looking for must also be a very good hands on developer with strong knowledge of PHP5, OO design patterns and experience in working with MVC framework (Laravel or Symfony, Zend or Yii).

You will have good knowledge of OO JavaScript and JS frameworks, ideally AngularJS.

Other key skills are knowledge of API's, RESTful web services and the LAMP stack with a understanding of NoSQL, ideally MongoDB. Strong knowledge of HTML5 and CCS3 would be a distinct advantage.

You will have an open personality, be a good problem solver and demonstrate high standards and a commitment to team success.

Project: Greenfield

Location: Bristol

At this stage, I am shortlisting candidates to schedule an initial casual interview with the client to discuss their product in more depth along with the role in hand.

Naturally If you are looking for that step into strategy and or a new exciting challenge, I'd welcome a call with you
