Senior PHP Developer
Rotterdam, 32-40 hr, ASAP
Your every day in a nutshell
You start your day with your colleagues around the team board discussing what the goal for today should be. It seems that having the backend endpoint ready for the new API is tops, so you get down to it.
After a small design conversation, it's clear that some refactoring needs to happen, as our understanding of the problem improved. No worries! You're ready to pair up and have that PR before lunch.
In the afternoon you have a one-on-one with the CTO, Bart, and you discuss to which industry-related event you'd like to go next. Perhaps you dare to give a presentation this time?
After that, you get to check some Pull Requests made by your colleagues and before the day ends, that endpoint is building, deploying and sending the right metrics! Today's been a good day, now ready to go home.
How you get the job done
- PHP is your native language and you use Symfony, MySQL and Elasticsearch
- You’ll work in a multidisciplinary team: pairing, code reviews and giving/receiving feedback is something you’ll do regularly
- Your job includes more than only coding, that’s why you’ll work closely together with the Product Manager & Business stakeholders to actually give direction to the things you build
- Since you get a lot of space and freedom for new initiatives, you turn good ideas into actions. For example, improving or implementing things you find important or interesting on the spot!
You will be part of an international and experienced Engineering department consisting of Frontend- and Backend Developers, Data- and DevOps Engineers, an Agile Coach and a CTO.
