Senior Web Developer
We are seeking a Senior Web Developer to join our fast-growing e-commerce team. The position is full time and permanent and based at our Manchester office.
The successful candidate will need to have several years' prior experience in development, including both front- and back-end work. They will be working on the maintenance and optimisation of the existing Magento 1 platform, the development of new functionality and the long-term preparation for migration to Magento 2. Prior Magento 1 experience is preferred, but training is available for senior candidates already skilled with similar platforms.
In addition, they will work on other in-house development projects including data warehouse development, which uses open source technologies and a stack including Laravel and MySQL. While this is a full-stack role, the front-end work is largely framework based, making this quite a back-end heavy position better suited to someone who prefers writing PHP and SQL.

Essential skills and experience

Excellent knowledge and experience of OOP PHP, CSS, HTML and JavaScript
Very strong MySQL skills are a prerequisite for this role
