We’re looking for back end developers who are highly skilled in PHP, familiar with cloud infrastructure, have some experience in building proprietary CMS platforms, and able to use their initiative to solve problems and build new applications and features. Ideal candidates are comfortable with the software development life cycle including planning, systems analysis, systems design, development, integration and testing, implementation and operations and maintenance.

Keakie’s developers work within a tightly knit team of forward thinking, energetic and result oriented people.
