Senior PHP Developer

Central Birmingham


£30,000 - £45,000

A fantastic opportunity has just arisen with one of my clients in Central Birmingham. They focus on the design, build and optimisation of digital products and services. They are a young dynamic development studio based in the heart of Birmingham. Their small but perfectly formed team of ~10, specialise in building high quality web applications and occasionally websites for clients according to their individual needs. They are a developer led company and the clients that they have require them to be involved from the very beginning from the ideation to the scoping and design. My client has never had to market them services, all of their customers come through recommendation and there is no project too big or to small that they cannot lend our expertise too.

About the role

My Client is searching for a full stack developer, leaning towards Backend development, which will require the candidate to think in terms of basic features all the way up to entire platforms.

Their Backend tool of choice is Laravel/Lumen, but they have a number of current projects that are built with different technology. So having experience with these frameworks is a must as well as not being worried about learning something new.

My client writes code that is testable, that can be reused, and that enables them to create development environments that can be used in tackling other projects in the future. And the role we have, will stretch across the entire spectrum of a project's life - from managing a full project individually to adding simple functionality.
