Senior / Lead Web Developer

JOB: Senior Web Developer / Hands-on Manager
LOCATION: Near Brentwood, Essex
JOB TERM: Permanent
SALARY: c.£45,000 (doe)

Do you like big web development projects, but not having to traipse to the big city to find them?

We’re looking for an experienced PHP Developer to join my SME client’s ecommerce operation just outside of Brentwood in Essex. Working alongside a hands-on CTO and a respected in-house design team, you’ll have the opportunity to utilize technologies such as Magento, AWS and LAMP stack technologies (except it’s nginx, not Apache).

The initial brief is perfect for you if you’re someone who enjoys rolling their sleeves up. Using the Zend Framework, this business has a number of upgrade and migration projects to their bespoke management systems planned (all designed and developed internally), and a number of new-build projects; the first one being a subscriptions platform that will directly interface with the Magento API. Full development lifecycle experience will be pivotal – Some initial progress has already been made, and as such you will be able to read PHP that is lightweight and straightforward, but light in commentary.

This is an opportunity to take the experience you have and use it to become a focal point in the expansion of a successful eCommerce business. Your responsibilities will be wholly internal – no external stakeholders, no client relationships and expectations to manage, just a flexible, relaxed working environment so you can get the job done on your terms.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS:
– Hands on Web/Software Development experience (object-oriented PHP & MySQL )
– eCommerce platform/API experience (ideally Magento )
– MVC Framework experience (preferably Zend)
– Standard web skills in HTML/CSS/JavaScript (ideally some JQuery )

DESIRABLE SKILLS
– Experience with platform/API integrations & upgrades
– Design, Refactoring & Testing experience

If you’re an experienced PHP Developer who enjoys ‘bricks & mortar’ web development, can handle platform/API integrations and would like the opportunity to act as a technical POC amongst a multi-disciplined team, my client would love the chance to show you what you could achieve with them.

Leave the big city and competitive agency environments behind – contact Wendi Mclean at Select Appointments on 01603 615511 for more information.
