The Role

This is a fantastic opportunity within a business who are really driving for change and are utilising some very exciting technology practices. They are now looking for a passionate Senior Developer to join their medium-sized team, as they look ahead to 2021, new challenges, new technologies and new projects.

You will be working on a couple of new and exciting projects that the company have in the pipeline, specifically focussing on large-scale bespoke solutions for a multitude of clients, right through from conception to delivery. As a Senior PHP Developer, you will act as the principal developer on the projects you are working on allowing you to really imprint your technical signature onto your projects, driving forward the technology development and deployment. If you do have any previous experience with making architectural decisions on projects, it will definitely come in handy with this role although if you don't this is something that you will gain exposure to.

You will be passionate about keeping up to date with the latest trends in technology and inspiring Software Developers around you. You are joining a business that is constantly improving and driving forward- also, exceptionally passionate about spotting and investing in the latest technologies and trends thus ensuring that your skillset is top-notch in the industry. You will also receive a training budget to help reach your personal / professional goals funded by the business. This is somewhere to make a career - not where you'll be considered as "just another developer".


  • PHP
  • Object Orientated design
  • Laravel / other MVC frameworks will be considered
  • MongoDB
  • Ideally experience within a JavaScript framework such as VueJS or React

Any knowledge of the following is a plus:

  • Knowledge of DevOps / CI/CD Automated tests
  • AWS

The Company

This is rare opportunity for someone who wants to be at the forefront of technology… This team are throwing themselves into modern ways of coding and don't shy away from embracing and trying new things. Whether you are a MD, Tech lead or developer your voice will be heard, and they are constantly open to improving in all aspects of what they do. To give you one example, in the last 12 months all of their developers wanted to learn React so the CTO ensured that funded workshops got put in place where their developers got stuck in and have since migrated their front end to React. You will become a key force within this business and a key voice in pioneering the business forward. Continual development is really important to them; as well as where you wish to take your career. You will be presented with the opportunity to push your career forward within a company known for nurturing top talent. The team are a top bunch, and culture fit is really important for them - they have begun a series of hobby groups for you to join if you wish when you work from home and there is always a meet up or conference which they are funding / encouraging the tech team to join! You will be truly valued here, and this is a fantastic opportunity for a passionate and driven Software Developer who wants to really make their mark and see the fruits of their labour!

Benefits include and are not limited to; 25 days holiday + 8 days bank holiday and Christmas shutdown (you can carry holidays over and also they increase by 1 every year), pension contribution, life insurance, flexible working in terms of both remote and hours, progression opportunities and funded development opportunities.
