Your new company
This leading business are currently transitioning to a Digital First strategy and are seeking an experienced back end PHP Developer to join them as they undertake a sustained period of growth. It's a highly exciting time to join a stable, profitable business with big aspirations and an enviable world class client list. You'll be based from their head office local to Petersfield, with links to public transport and car parking on site.

Your new role
In short you'll be contributing to creating a solid, robust digital platform from which the company can continue to grow organically and handle the ever-growing digital demand.

You'll join a business that deals with top level clients exclusively and a good percentage of work is new build where the digital team have a huge input into how things are completed. The business like to have developers focused on one delivery but there are opportunities to broaden this as the team can work on 6-7 projects concurrently. The company control the systems they build, meaning developers can be intrinsic with the user and understand their journey to build a better product.

This isn't a 9-5 role. There are deadlines and pressure but they have fun with it and create some amazing outputs. The company are eradicating their freelance model and want to focus on developing staff internally. There's loads of room for progression and mobility to move into different roles or adapt your role to enable growth of skill sets.

It's an internally creative team that champion collaboration. They want ideas people and constant suggestions of how to re-engineer things, not just work from a brief.

What you'll need to succeed
The core focus currently surrounds OO PHP, MySQL, modern MVC frameworks and API Development combined with development practices including Kanban, GIT and Continuous Integration.

Front end capabilities including modern JavaScript frameworks (Angular) will be a distinct bonus and crucially an attitude that says 'if I don't know it, I'll learn it' and if I do know it 'I'll share that knowledge with the team'.

What you'll get in return
You'll work for a technology focused company where work life balance is not an abstract concept. There's an excellent rewards scheme in place including private healthcare, 33 days holiday, generous pension scheme and a discretionary bonus. There are regular appraisals and smaller benefits such as life cover and income protection.

Salary is negotiable for the right candidate up to £45000 and is representative of the company's flexible approach to employment, nurturing talent and empowering developers.
