ABOUT THE ROLE
This position can be 100% remote, working on a daily basis within our timezone (CET). The whole team works remotely, but we also have an office in Kraków, Poland available to use.
As a Senior PHP Developer, you will be responsible for :
Developing our marketplace PHP application in a TDD manner (see stack below)
Building our infrastructure in the Infrastructure-As-Code approach - we are gradually migrating our infrastructure into the cloud
Tackling scaling challenges - we grow our traffic volume, data usage and we are expanding geographically into new markets and sources of revenues
Delivering an item (e.g. a feature) over a full chain of value - you will own the delivery starting from partnering with business stakeholders (Product Team, company Founders, other teams) into final deployment to production and monitoring
Choosing the architecture that solves the problem at hand best - we are the only engineering team in the company and we have huge autonomy
Contributing to improving our workflow based on Kanban by constantly decreasing cycle & lead times as well as keeping the Work In Progress low
We are looking for a person interested in the Cloud and Infrastructure-as-Code areas. Experience with IaC is not required but your interest in the subject and eagerness to work on these tasks is ( 20% of your assignments).
We believe that having strong language-agnostic skills (e.g. TDD) is mandatory to be a good infrastructure coder. You will have a lot of opportunities to grow in this area, as we are on a journey to become a cloud-native application.
Your typical week will consist of :
60% - coding
20% - code reviews
20% - meetings (1 : 1s, standups, retros, devs’ tech meetings)
Our tech stack :
Backend : PHP, Laravel, Twig, MySQL, Redis, Elasticsearch
Frontend : Vue, Twig, SCSS, Tailwind, Jest
Infrastructure : CDN in Fastly, HAProxy, Nginx, Elasticsearch / Fluentd / Kibana + Grafana stack for monitoring, Docker, Terraform, multiple AWS services for test instances, backups, and CI / CD, PHPUnit & Jest for tests
The above is the stack of our main marketplace application. Last year we also bootstrapped a new video product in Vue, Tailwind, Twilio Video, Google Firestore, and Vercel - although you will work on it rather occasionally.
WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
Very good knowledge of at least 1 programming language (you will work in PHP), including at least 1 modern framework
