Since its founding in 2012, Scribbr has evolved from a side-project in an unexplored market to one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe with more than 35 employees and 100,000+ customers from all over the world.
We are constantly seeking ways to improve our services through technology. Our goal is to build a strong, efficient and fun development team that can get the job done, using the best, cutting-edge techniques.
As our PHP Tech Lead, you seamlessly switch between being a passionate coder and a leader who can scale up our development team and help take Scribbr to the next level.
Our tech stack: PHP 7.1, Symfony 3, Doctrine, Vagrant, Redis, Selenium, Scrutinizer, PHPStan, PHPUnit, Gitlab, Heineken, TDD, DDD and CI/CD.
-You will help develop one of the most effective and ambitious dev teams in Amsterdam!
-You will play a key role in determining the direction for Scribbr’s development team. After discussion with the development team and the co-founders, you have the final say.
-You will suggest improvements to processes, technologies and interfaces to enhance the team’s effectiveness.
-You are responsible for infrastructure stability, monitoring and recovery. If for some reason, we don’t have a TV with the right server stats, then you will help us get one ASAP ;-)
-You will work closely with the product owner and business to ensure we work on issues that deliver business value and improve the codebase.
-You will be a leader in discussions, keeping them concise and effective.
-You will help mentor and lead the efforts of the team in addition to doing "heads-down" coding.
-It’s your job to make the development team’s output predictable.

-Experience with improving code and architecture. You know what to improve first, how and when.
-Excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
-You are used to Dutch culture (or are Dutch).
-Experience with Agile software development.
-Eager to learn about the business. Having a business/entrepreneurial mindset is a big plus.
-Passion for understanding emerging technologies with pragmatic insight into where those technologies can be integrated into business solutions.
What do we offer?
-Complete autonomy. Do we need to refactor? Go for it!
-A role on the management team and room to grow into the role of CTO.
-A fun, ambitious, informal work environment that embraces the latest technologies
