Senior PHP Developer (contract)

at The App Business in London

You will be working with a high profile client in the sports betting sector, one of the most recognised brands in the industry. It is an exciting time to join as they grow their technical teams in London and embrace a data-driven and continuous delivery approach.

We’re looking for someone who can handle:

PHP and Phalcon
High quality, test-driven software using PHPUnit and Behat with Atlassian Bamboo.
Large scale and high profile enterprise projects (both existing and greenfield).
Microservices and hexagonal architecture design
Working in a cross-functional Agile team, alongside other engineers, product owners, designers, and testers
Working from locations in South Bank and Kings Cross (TAB and client sites)

Experience in other languages (e.g. Java, Ruby, Clojure) and a strong interest in new technology trends are also beneficial: we always strive to use the best technology for the job at hand, so new microservices may be developed using other languages.
Key areas of responsibility:
Technical excellence
• Solve complex programming problems in a clean and testable way.
• Contribute to continuous improvement of PHP development practices and standards.
• Evaluate how different technologies, frameworks and languages can be used in order to deliver the best possible solution for both TAB and our client.

Cross-functional development
• Learn and collaborate in cross-functional teams with other engineers, product owners, designers, and testers.
• Work closely with clients and key stakeholders to ensure requirements are met.
• Work across the technical stack, contributing to infrastructure, application and database development.
• Collaborate with both internal and external teams to document and evolve APIs, using language agnostic tools/frameworks (such as RAML).

Design expertise
• Demonstrate expertise in designing and developing high-quality and scalable APIs and back-end services.
• Understand approaches to API security, caching, versioning and interoperability, ensuring all aspects of design have been considered.
