The Development Team
Our dev team is agile and meritocratic. Everyone’s opinions are valued, we love to hear new ideas and your career progression is limited only by your talent and how quickly you can demonstrate your abilities to make an exceptional impact.
We have a fast paced environment, changes occur daily and new ideas are always valued and considered. We love to base our decisions on evidence, reason and user testing. We are a small team so we don’t waste time writing long cumbersome documentations, but we make sure that every task is first fully understood and that everyone in the team understands what we are building and why.
We like to use the best tools available to write code. This means that sometimes we have to mix between old established methods and new revolutionary ones. Currently this mean PHP, MySQL, Laravel, MailGun, Git, AWS and more.

In this role, you will have the overview & control of our PHP architecture and Laravel framework, work with an inspirational team and implement ideas to strategically drive our back-end system to the next level.
This role comes with great options of career progression as you will be one of the first full time full stack developers on many of our systems, in a business that has a strong customer base and huge opportunity.
