Full Stack PHP Developer

LEMP Stack, Laravel, Redis, SQL (Mysql/Postgres), Docker, API, AWS, HTML, CSS

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a PHP Developer to join an online marketing start-up based in Shoreditch, London. The company has achieved significant growth during its first 18 months and is looking to recruit a full stack programmer to help accelerate this by providing its customers and business partners with market-leading product and data.

The successful candidate will be excited by the prospect of working in a small, fast growing team and interacting daily with technical and non-technical colleagues – all while maintaining a focus on delivery against business objectives.

Role requirements

The PHP Developer will work on the company’s content management and MI systems, building and enhancing web apps that maximise performance, reliability and conversion impact.

The successful candidate will be heavily involved in new projects involving the development of a new data and reporting platform; integration of API feeds; web personalisation; analytics and more.

There will also be significant opportunity to enhance the features of the company’s existing consumer-facing web apps, working closely with the business to create a unique and rewarding experience for all visitors.

A reasonable level of front end experience is required, although please note that most front end development is currently outsourced. The front end component to this role is therefore intended to focus on integration of new front end code into our systems.
