Lead PHP Architect - Take the next step in your career
We hate job ads where everything is awesome, rockin’ and cool *. We want to be honest. If an open position has downsides, we will be frank about it. We want you to be equally honest. Don't say you're a passionate ninja-rock-star-gorilla-geek-hero if you're not. We value diversity: strange loners, outspoken personalities - come as you are.
Despite our differences, we still have much in common:
-Drive to keep pace with the state of the art. Never complacent, always learning.
- Understanding that with great freedom comes great responsibility. If you’re a self-starter, you’ll fit right in.
-Strong opinions, low ego. Ideas are realised based on their merit, not on who had them.
- Trustworthiness. We deliver the results we promise. No excuses.
We are now looking for a Lead PHP Developer or Lead PHP Architect with strong coding skills and a proven track record developing large web applications.
Here’s what we want from you:
-Experience creating complex commercial web applications using OO PHP5, MySQL and MVC frameworks (Symfony 2 and Zend Framework preferred), with an eye for fantastic user experiences and a brain for impenetrable security.
-Comfortable using TDD and Agile methodologies, version control systems (Git, SVN), Linux, writing documentation, working with back and front end technologies, constantly learning and improving your skill set.
-A desire to write beautiful, clean code, with thorough testing coverage, thoughtful use of design patterns, and avoiding quick and dirty solutions to the last. “Spaghetti”, “bubble gum” and “legacy” are swear words to you.
-Solid communication skills in either English or Finnish.
Here’s a little bit about us:
When you enter our office, you will see highly motivated geeks building the future of the web and you will probably sense the mish mash of friendly, freaky and hard working spirit we are extremely proud of.
- We work in self-directed and self-managed teams. You're the boss.
-Our supportive teams are responsible for making new deals and delivering new interesting projects to work with.
- We have delivered approx. 200 web applications and sites for our customers utilizing Zend / Symfony frameworks and Drupal, and related technologies.
-We do everything agile. Waterfall developers: SBA is not for you.
- We educate ourselves actively: Scrum, PHP certificates, internal training - a sampling of our recent educational activities.
We don't mind if you're self-taught or have an academic background. Convince us with your code samples and your activity in the PHP community and on Github. Think out of the box and send us everything relevant and irrelevant that demonstrates your skill set to email@example.com.
* Yes, been there, done that, but you know what: we learned from our mistakes.
