Senior PHP Web Developer

Posted 6 April by Hays Specialist Recruitment Limited Easy Apply

Senior PHP Developer position in Brighton city centre. Beautiful offices, double digital growth firm. 45k-55k

Your new company

Double digit growth, year on year, with a very happy work force. They work with big household names, but with plenty of room to take on more clients, and are market leaders in their field.

Your new role

They need an experienced web developer, predominantly focused on back end. Their current stack is PHP (Lavarel & Symfony), Apache and MySQL, all on on Linux.

The development team is very much part of the wider business; this isn't the sort of firm that will shut you in the back room. It's a web based business, and devs have full ownership of the platform. It's a flat structure, but as a senior, you will be encouraged to mentor and inspire juniors and mid-weights.

You will be passionate about technology, and propose recommendations to drive improvements in the business. There is a learning culture in place, so you will have time to investigate and propose new tech and ways of working. The business hasn't grown at pace by sitting on it's laurels; it's grown by listening to the team and investing in it's people.

What you'll need to succeed

You will be a proven web developer with a track record of innovating in an open source environment. You will love to code, and have ambitions to progress to Technical Lead. They are open on stack background, but you'll need to know your way around modern PHP frameworks and be comfortable with MySQL.

What you'll get in return

You'll get all the usual Brighton benefits; free fruit, coffee and snacks, beers on a Friday, a social atmosphere, several company events a year, bean bags, your birthday off, and plenty more.

More importantly, however, you will be joining a business that is growing at an astounding pace. They excel and retaining and developing people and, as an experienced developer, you will be in a position to drive innovation and try new things. There is plenty of scope to make this role in to your own, and your input will be recognised and rewarded.
