Our Client

This ninety-year-old business is at the forefront of technology in their field and have a range of projects going forward that will require some creative development.

You will be working in-house in a newly refurbished office in a creative part of Birmingham with a diverse team of 40 people - some positions you will recognise, and others won't be so familiar.

If you are looking for subject matter different from the norm and want to work on systems that are going to be in use every day, where your work will really be valued, then this is definitely something to consider.

The Role

You should be able to switch between Back End and Front End Development and be able to develop features quickly. Solutions-driven and with an eye for detail, you will have a natural interest in the latest digital and social innovations.

Your day to day activities will include:

  • Web application development and maintenance
  • Ideas generation and project scoping
  • Technical design and documentation

Core Technical skills required:

  • Solid PHP experience using MVC frameworks
  • Front End development experience of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Experience extending and theming content management systems such as WordPress
  • MySQL
  • Version Control using Git
  • Experience with Linux servers/command line

Any practical experience of the following would be a distinct advantage:

  • CakePHP (Version 2 and/or Version 3)
  • JavaScript Frameworks such as AngularJS, Ember
  • CSS Frameworks such as SASS/LESS
  • Mobile App development

About You

You should enjoy a diversity of work and being a bit of an 'all-rounder' with a proactive approach to developing the best solutions. You should also be flexible in order to work and liaise with some of the international offices where required. In addition to this, you will need to have excellent communication skills, be collaborative and naturally super organised.

So, if you are a skilled and talented PHP Developer with solid Front End skills who wants to work on a range of business critical projects and add real value to a business, please get in touch by sending your CV and examples of work through in the first instance.
