You will be working as part of a small & growing development team to maintain & create customer projects based on the CakePHP Framework. Typically these projects are based around processing large volumes of data in overnight batches, and exposing this data via REST APIs to client devices.

You will have at least 2 years commercial experience in CakePHP or a similar MVC PHP framework, you will be PHP certified (or have a similar level of experience) and will have already embraced practices like Test Driven Development.

We develop on Windows, but deploy to Linux, so knowledge of working with both operating systems is essential.
