  • About the Role

    We are looking for an experienced PHP backend developer to join our engineering team and help us to deliver products providing an exceptional experience to both end-users and fitness providers. This is an exciting chance to play an important role in a fast-growing VC backed company.

    You will be joining a team of skilled front and back end developers who work closely with the product team to refine our market offerings and deliver products iteratively at pace, while working to modernise our codebase and infrastructure. We have multiple products which you could be working on at any one time including a consumer-facing website, partners portal, our corporate offering and our public and private APIs.

    We have an office in London’s Soho district but we are flexible, with most of the team working remotely and meeting for team days in the office once every couple of weeks.


    While we are always modernising our tech stack our core technologies remain PHP and MySQL, and our legacy customer facing and business websites are built on the Zend Framework so you’ll need serious experience with that in order to find your way around.

    More modern bits are built as microservices in Laravel and Node.js on top of AWS’s serverless offerings, so experience with those things would be advantageous. Having knowledge of server-side rendering would be beneficial but is not a requirement.

    Like most places we use a stack of other AWS technologies including RDS Aurora, EC2, ECS, Elasticache, S3 and Lambda all built and managed with CloudFormation and Terraform. However we don’t expect you to know everything, so feel free to apply even if you don’t have experience in all of these.

    We work with agile methodologies and are always looking to increase test coverage across our applications, so having a good understanding of the benefits of these will also give you a good head start.

    Finally we love people who have come from a startup background and understand the Hussle required to deliver solutions to complex problems in these kinds of environments. But don’t be put off if your experience is a little different to that. What we want to see is that you have the passion and drive to become a key part of our team.
