PHP Developer, WordPress – Belfast (£55k - £70k)


What’s important to you about your work environment?


Is it flexibility?  Remote Working?  Work-life balance? More autonomy? Is the variety of work the main criteria when considering a move?


Not every job can tick all the above… but this one can.


I’m working alongside one of the best-kept secrets within the digital sector in Northern Ireland (although I predict this won’t be the case for much longer).


They’re experts in product management and strategy including user research, design, analytics and optimisation. Essentially, they are a digital product studio who partner with global businesses to start-ups to ensure that they keep ahead of the competition.


Some of their products are already in use by over 350 million people. You’ll work with global brands such as Manchester United, Starbucks and Heineken.  They’ve just secured some major contracts which has prompted the current recruitment drive.  They are looking to hire five positions across development and design.


One of these contracts is with a major sports organisation based in Ireland. You’ll be designing and developing an application that will generate around 200 million euros over the next three years. If projections are correct, one in four people in Ireland will be using this application once its live.


Another project is a fascinating multiyear project for a high-profile client.  This will require a PHP Developer with a strong background or interest in WordPress.


The Person


You’ll be a senior developer with at least 4-5 years of commercial experience coupled with a strong understanding of PHP back-end development.  This should include experience interacting with external APIs into WordPress along with WordPress' Advanced Custom Fields.  A good understanding of HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript is needed as you will be building responsive user interfaces.


The sort of person we are looking for is equally as important as skills and experience.  You should be a generalist.  What I mean by that is that you see the problem from end to end, front to back.  You are always keeping an eye out for UI/UX, security, performance, and operational issues.  You must be calm under pressure as you could be working on multiple well-scoped projects.  


The benefits of joining this company speak for themselves.  A very competitive salary, full remote working options combined with autonomy (no micromanagement or top to bottom hierarchies), pension, annual company retreat, paid parental leave.


You will also get to choose your equipment along with your own personal development budget for online learning, conference passes, travel to events etc.


If all this sounds good, then give me a call/text/WhatsApp on 077 8988 6539.  I don’t even need an updated CV at this point, just a portfolio would suffice.
