Are you a Senior PHP Developer looking to take the step up into a Tech Lead position? Do you want to lead your own scrum team but never quite had the opportunity?

Take the lead and develop microservices applications!

This is a role for a Senior PHP Developer to take ownership of a Scrum team within this growing technology organization - this company have a wide suite of products and a broad range of technology to enable the best product possible.

A lot of their suite is built on PHP with Symfony framework, they are also looking at breaking down current applications into a Microservices architecture and re-deploy them onto the cloud - the migration is currently happening with currently 5 products transferred over to AWS. Moving forward for the API endpoints they are looking to employ NodeJS for these endpoints allowing for quicker connections.

In terms of the team - they currently have 3 scrum teams and you will take control of one of these teams, comprised of 3 back end developers, 2 front end developers, a QA and a BA. It is expected that you will take on some scrum mastering duties of this team, setting up sprint goals and helping the team to deliver without blockers with the assistance of the head of development.

This is still a hands on role so you should be expected to cut code with the best of them, but also getting involved in architectural discussion and leadership meetings.

To be successful as a Senior PHP Developer you will:

* Have had a commercial role writing PHP code with a modern MVC framework - Symfony, Laravel etc.
* Understand the importance of clean, reusable and testable code acting as a champion for quality in your current role
* Have gotten involved in architectural conversations in the past - being able to explain why certain decisions have been made
* Be able to explain the benefits of Agile - including the benefits of a CI/CD environment
* Have mentored more junior developers in the past and be open to acting as a technical lead
* Be naturally curious about technology and always want to know the best way to solve a problem

This is a great opportunity to expand on your role as a Senior PHP Developer, allowing you to take on some technical leadership duties in a company that are doing some really cool things with technology, always open to using new tech to get the best solution possible.

If desired there is also the opportunity to get more involved in Line Management to build you up into taking on a Development Manager role or similar, but if you are not interested they are always happy for you to stay hands on!
