They know how important it is that you feel trusted, supported and encouraged throughout your career that’s why they place a huge emphasis on their employees, making sure that you are given everything that you need to thrive in your new role. From growth and development, to making sure that your voice, ideas and opinions are heard – they value their staff as individuals and recognize all contributions as a critical element to our wider success.

About the Role
You will be responsible for contributing to the technical design, development, and implementation of the application ecosystem. The role involves more than just writing production code; in a typical week, you could be: brainstorming technical architecture options, providing feedback to improve our development processes, reviewing PRs from other team members, fixing a bug you randomly came across, or improving unit test coverage.
They are looking for an outstanding Lead Developer with a desire to participate in a growing team with the skills, experience, and understanding to join a small, but capable development team. In order to meet the many challenges and high-volume work of the users, it is important for the Developer to have excellent communication.
What you will do
You will be in charge of working on multiple features for the web app, as well as improving and maintaining the quality of the entire codebase.
You will take charge of your own work and proactively suggest improvements across the whole backend.
In a remote environment you will be responsible for your own time and results – there will be no babysitting.
What you will need to succeed
Nutcracker: you love solving engineering problems.
Independent: you are self-motivated, take initiative, and are a strong communicator. You are results-driven and willing to learn and improve yourself.
Technical Ninja: proficiency with PHP 7.4+, Laravel 8+, MySQL, and Git, backed by 4+ years of professional development experience.
Design Pattern Jedi: great knowledge of and direct experience with multiple design patterns. You have written superbly abstracted code and accompanying unit tests from scratch. You have also refactored legacy, non-testable code into something less apocalyptic.
Caring Developer: you recognize that your code and work impact not only the customers but also the rest of the team. You conduct yourself with professionalism and respect not only in meetings but also in how you structure your code and in the documentation that you write.
Superb English fluency: we are an international team and clear communication is vital. It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that you absolutely must have the ability to participate in frequent video meetings.
