Senior PHP Developer

Customer experience studio

An independent customer experience studio is looking to bring in a PHP Developer to join their development team, which currently numbers 6.

The client

Based in Fitzrovia they’ve got 55 people in their office, who work with a broad range of clients. These range from large corporates to small start-ups.

They’re looking for someone who has an expert knowledge of PHP, ideally with frameworks such as Symfony. They work in an agile environment, so it is important that you recognise the benefits of this. Any prior experience with Java and Spring would be a huge bonus. Expertise with development methodologies such as TDD, DDD and BDD would be helpful as well.

The role

In terms of you as an individual, they want someone who has:

  • A desire to succeed and a will to be excellent at everything they do
  • Passion to learn and be part of a team
  • Willingness to try and to not be afraid of failure when taken out of your comfort zone
  • Database design skills with the ability to drop to low-level SQL (and know what you’re doing there)
  • Experience with unit testing, version control, continuous integration and code reviews
  • Familiarity with design patterns
  • Experience in developing web services and associated REST/SOAP APIs
  • Ability working with multinational/multilingual e-commerce sites

The candidate

In return for the above they’re offering a salary of up to £60K (though they would go higher if the ideal person came along), as well as a fantastic range of benefits. They really focus on making their employees happy, so allow you to buy holiday, offer flexitime, a season ticket loan, remote working options and a free lunch every Friday, on top of free breakfast every day!
