Commutable From Birmingham, Walsall, Derby, Manchester, Wolverhampton, Liverpool, Sheffield, Coventry, Leicester.

Our client is looking for an experienced PHP developer to modernise their technology stack & move to PHP 7. The client is well established in their area & looking for someone suitable on a 6 month contract.

All of the software has been built by their own in-house team of 10 developers. It helps them do what they do faster, more accurately, and repeatable; and it allows their clients instant live access to everything important to them. We are currently looking for bright and talented developers to join this team.

Their platform utilises the LAMP stack with AngularJS on the front-end. Over the next 12 -18 months, we will be looking to modernise our technology stack by moving to PHP 7 and improving the processes around the SDLC such as introducing delivery and end-to-end automated testing.

We are looking for people who would call themselves Senior Developers. In our world this means that you are comfortable with all standard PHP syntax, core software development principles and have enough knowledge of the language to produce functionally independently.

More importantly, you should be someone that sees the process of software development as a collaborative effort. If you prefer to work through technical problems on a whiteboard with a colleague as opposed to by yourself, then you will fit right into the environment.

Required Experience:

  • Experience with PHP5/PHP7 and MySQL
  • Knowledge of TDD/Unit Testing

Nice To Haves:

  • Experience working on complex codebases
  • Experience working with AngularJS or another Front-End framework
  • Experience working with legacy code
  • Experience with AWS
