Are you an experienced PHP and Laravel Developer?

Are you an experienced Web Developer looking to join an exciting, ambitious and established web technology company that values its team above anything else?

Do you enjoy creating, building and collaborating with intelligent, like-minded people who share your passion for web development and technology? Do you want to work with international brands and make amazing web products?

If so, you sound like their kind of person.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and highly capable individual to join their development team and support their ambitious growth plans. Joining their team of talented designers and developers, you will be working on their own rapidly growing Software-as-a-Service products as well as bespoke web and mobile applications that they produce and support for a wide variety of clients.

They are keen advocates of developing on the latest open source platforms and frameworks, using appropriate tools to develop and test their projects and applying agile methodologies to manage them. As part of your role, you will have the opportunity to help shape the way they do things and ensure they remain at the cutting edge of best development practices.

As part of your employment package, you will have your choice of Mac or PC, a mobile phone allowance and car parking space in addition to plenty of other benefits including conferences, training opportunities and team away days.

It would also be nice if you had experience in:

- HTML, CSS and JavaScript
- Linux server management using SSH
- jQuery
- iOS development (Objective C or Swift)
- Android development (Java)
- Code and performance optimisation
