We're currently looking for PHP Developers to expand our existing PHP teams and help us support and grow our existing eCommerce platform. We need problem-solvers, so the ability to investigate, understand and resolve issues is essential (whether working alone or as part of a team effort), as well as strong communication skills and attention to detail.

Working alongside the Team Leader and Senior Developers, you'll be expected to provide support to our existing customers, as well as develop new features and complete bespoke projects following detailed specifications. The Development department is highly collaborative so strong communication skills and an inclination toward teamwork are a must.

The ideal candidate must have an excellent understanding of object orientated PHP7 within MVC frameworks, MySQL, and jQuery. As a minimum requirement you will need three years of commercial experience.

We offer a competitive salary, a great working environment, and outstanding benefits (including a pension scheme, unlimited holidays, flexitime, flexible working, free breakfasts, subsidised gym membership, free protein shakes, company nights out and free branded clothing) so if you think you've got what it takes to join one of the UK's leading eCommerce providers, we'd love to hear from you.
