The Role

As a Senior Software Developer (PHP, Laravel, AWS and React), you will be working in a small and AGILE engineering team of 7 on a number of large, enterprise-scale cloud-based web applications. As a Senior Developer (PHP, Laravel, AWS and React), you will contribute to their product and build new features building WebAPI's whilst sharing brand new ideas to the product roadmap within the team. On the backend, they utilise PHP and Laravel and on the front end they utilise React (they are currently still migrating their front end, so this is something exciting for you to get involved with as they continue learning React). These products have an impact on today's society and our future generations. It will be beneficial if you have experience in developing enterprise stuff - so large, complex data-heavy code. They have a lovely test team of 4 in place so your code will be tested although if you do have a knowledge of testing your own code that would be beneficial. You will implement best practise patterns in order to deliver robust code in a cloud-based environment, alongside a talented team who will share with you bags of knowledge as some of their leaders have been in the industry 20+ years. You will also contribute to a number of data-heavy projects that operate on a national scale. They are directly partnered with a global business who liaise with business leaders across the globe who in turn utilise this software and they are very well respected in this industry. This is an opportunity for your work to be taken to the next level - whilst working within a meaningful industry and truly caring about the sector that they are in for future generations to come.

The Stack…

  • Software development best practices (they use PHP/Laravel, but they will consider other MVC frameworks)
  • RESTful API principles
  • MySQL OR MongoDB knowledge
  • Elasticsearch
  • Ideally Docker and Kubernetes skills
  • A JavaScript framework - React ideally or VueJS will be considered.

The Company

Well, if you haven't learnt how to juggle yet - you best get practising following these guys successes over the last 12 months! During lockdown, they have made a particular emphasis on hobbies - doing things that make you feel good - OUTSIDE OF WORK. There is a real key focus on product improvement here and they constantly focus on innovating the products that they have both improving processes and solutions which are in turn simple to use and also simple to learn. You will work for an arm of a global business which is extremely financially stable and the progression and salary opportunities are endless. They consistently strive for excellence in what they do and always aim to make sure that their product has an impact on both efficiency and continues to positively impact their target audience in a positive light within society. The role in itself is a Senior position where they are keen for everyone to crack on in a collaborative manner, although they also encourage learning opportunities within the team and will fund any opportunities that you deem stuitable to your career. In the last year or two, they have backed this up by migrating their front end over to the latest front end framework React from an older framework that they had in place prior. They got in a team of coaches to work with the developers to learn the new language and they all chipped in to drive the migration - together! As well as continuing to keep up to date with your skillset, they are naturally open and operate on a winning mindset to succeed. Moving forward, they are currently in a debate about keeping their Bristol office open although as long as you can commit to twice a month meet-ups this is ideal for them. Let's have a chat!
