Backend PHP Developer

Location: York, England, United Kingdom


Salary £28,000 - £30,000k DOE

A rapidly expanding, award winning digital agency are currently seeking an enthusiastic full-time PHP developer to become part of a growing, young and ambitious team based in the centre of York.

They work with organisations all over the world, from small one-man businesses to international conglomerates. You will be joining their current team of 18 working in a friendly and informal environment, on both client projects and their own products. The ideal candidate will fit seamlessly into what is a very ambitious and growing agency.

You will be working on bespoke websites and web applications both independently and as part of a team, therefore the ability to use your initiative is a must in what is a fast paced and ever changing environment. You should have experience working with MySQL, OOP, MVC and a PHP framework such as Laravel (or be willing and keen to learn with direction).

Our client uses a cutting-edge tech stack including the latest versions of PHP, Laravel and Elastic Search. They have zero-downtime deployment set up on several projects and take advantage of Travis CI to ensure their code is consistently stable. They are a fast moving team and as such, allow their developers to shape the workflow if you can demonstrate improvement.

The company are happy to speak with recent graduates, self-taught developers and experienced professionals. No qualifications are essential to this position, but an ability to demonstrate your work is.

They are accepting UK based candidates only, please only apply if you meet this criteria.
