Senior Web Developer




Stockport based company are offering a fantastic opportunity for a senior web developer to join their growing team. The role has come from organic growth within the business. Experience will be required in either Magento or Laravel. Also, there is a signing on bonus for passing the probation period.

The Role:

You will need to have several years' prior experience in development, including both front- and back-end work. You will be working on the maintenance and optimisation of the existing Magento 1 platform, the development of new functionality and the long-term preparation for migration to Magento 2. Prior Magento 1 experience is preferred, but training is available for senior candidates already skilled with similar platforms.

You will work on other in-house development projects including data warehouse development, which uses open source technologies and a stack including Laravel and MySQL. While this is a full-stack role, the front-end work is largely framework based, making this quite a back-end heavy position better suited to someone who prefers writing PHP and SQL.


* Graduate with a minimum of three years' commercial experience in OOP PHP and MySQL
* A good degree in computer science/software engineering or a related field

What you should be able to do:

* Excellent knowledge and experience of OOP PHP, CSS, HTML and JavaScript
* Very strong MySQL skills are a prerequisite for this role
* Strong MVC skills, including experience with frameworks (we use Zend in Magento and Laravel on other projects)
* Strong skills in the use of Git for version control
* Recent Magento 1 experience is required

Desirable skills and experience

* Experience of Laravel and/or Symfony
* Experience of front-end frameworks such as Bootstrap or Foundation
* Experience with Sass/Less


* Competitive holiday entitlement
* Health cover and death-in-service benefits, after a qualifying period
* Pension
* Monthly colleague recognition scheme
* Free on-site parking
* Fresh fruit delivered to the office every Monday for staff
* Unlimited free hot drinks
* Open plan, bright modern office
* Two luxury kitchens with top of the range appliances including TVs
* Pool and table tennis tables for ultimate lunch time relaxation
* Company social events
* Regular fun days and charity events hosted in the office
