[looking for staff] [Jewellery Quarter] PHP Developer

(Daniel Newns) #1

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Jump 24 as a Web Developer at our Birmingham office. Jump 24 is a specialist design and development studio in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. We develop brilliant web applications with our clients who range from global digital agencies to entrepreneurial startups and everything in-between.

We are seeking a talented Web Developer (we could say full stack but the reality is a slant towards backend) who writes great code, and wants to be a significant part of a team building incredible products. You’ll have experience of back-end development and will be able to impress us with the things you have already worked on. Initially, you will work on a specific long term project, with the aim of taking on multiple projects throughout your career with the Company.

We’re looking for someone we’re going to get along with, who is ready to challenge us and is keen to be learning all the time. You’ll regularly be experimenting with new technologies and will be willing to go the extra mile in order to delight the client.

We primarily code in PHP and JavaScript and an understanding of object oriented code is essential. Having experience with MVC frameworks (we love Laravel) and tools like Composer is a real plus.

Any web infrastructure knowledge (e.g. running your own server) is a bonus and working with version control systems such as Git is a real benefit.

£22,000 - £50,000 per annum (dependant on experience)

You’ll enjoy coming to work! MacBook Pro, Netflix or Spotify subscription, 20 days + public holidays, bonus, cycle to work scheme
