Suitable for: a PHP Developer with a couple of years’ commercial experience or more, who wants to work on interesting and genuinely challenging work in an environment that appreciates and recognises the hard work you put in.

Working with a small, but growing environmentally-friendly company in the heart of Nottingham, I have been asked to find them a talented PHP Developer to join their lovely team.

Having met the Line Manager for the role, we have got a great insight into the company and the role- it all seems very promising, and the culture, refreshing. They are a tight-knit and collaborative team that listens to each other and takes all views on board- if there’s ever a disagreement for any reason, it’s talked about in a calm, understanding manner to come to an agreed conclusion- there’s no nastiness. Furthermore, they take their processes seriously; doing them the right way to ensure the ongoing improvement to the running of the company.

You will initially, for the first few months, be concentrating on improving and strengthening their testing framework to allow for continuous integration. Thereafter, you’ll get to develop cool, new features that will allow you to express your creativity and logic, resulting in elegant, reliable and performant software applications.

Technically, you’ll be great with:

  • Unit tests, particularly with PHPUnit
  • Implementing and improving test plans
  • OO development with PHP5
  • Zend framework
  • HTML5
  • JavaScript, JQuery
  • Git

Any experience with the following would be useful:

  • Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment
  • Gerhkin, ideally in Selenium/Behat/mink
  • PHP7
  • ECMA6
  • node
  • Service worker
  • Web components

Ideally, you’ll be degree-educated in a technical discipline like Computer Science or Software Engineering. Personality-wise, you’ll have a mature, logical attitude, with a desire to collaborate effectively with your team mates to create the best software you can and have a lovely time doing it- you will love the fact that everyone there has everyone’s best interest at heart and that a good work/life balance is promoted and encouraged.


The salary on offer for this role is negotiable dependent upon your experience, and it comes with some rather unique benefits that include (but by no means, limited to) 26 days holiday + bank holidays, a better-than-average pension, flexible start/ finish and some working from home, and a number of other benefits –please ask me about them!

The role is based in Nottingham.

If you feel you’d be a good fit for this role, then please apply now. if you’d like to understand a bit more about the role before taking the plunge, then feel free to give me a buzz to discuss!
