An exciting opportunity to join an entrepreneurial software business working on the development of a market changing, large scale web application, working alongside other designers, developers and testers.

Reporting to the Head of Development, you will take a Lead role in the Development team, collaborating with a team of Developers based both in the UK and abroad. This role will focus on business logic being implemented on the client side, with significant server validation on PHP and MySQL. The applicant must be able to write efficient testable and reusable PHP modules.

To successfully secure this role it is essential that you demonstrate:
Excellent knowledge of PHP concepts
A good understanding of basic principles such as MVC, REST, JSON and server validation
Knowledge of relational databases (MySQL) and experience in writing stored procedures and MySQL queries.
Experience working in an Agile environment and on board with Scrum methodology.
The ability to maintain high quality scalable code, documenting code during development phases.
Experience with GIT.

Experience with NodeJS would be particularly advantageous, as would PHP5, Symfony or Silex. Also any experience or understanding of JavaScript, AngularJS or Anhular2, HTML5,CSS3 or related front end tools, would also be of interest to our client.

The person to secure this lead role will have had experience in a similar position or be keen to step up into the role. They will be confident working in a fast paced environment, working on secure high performance web applications and understand the full development lifecycle and testing process.

The business has ambitious growth plans and there is good potential career progression available for the right individual. The salary on offer is up to £60,000.
